Article on John Allin

For those that do not know it, John Allin is a pioneer in the snow plowing industry and a moderator for this forum. Here is an article I came across and would like to share.

JAA is an Old Timer here. He's as top notch as they come. He has personally helped me on several occassions. He and his company are very deservant of their good reputation.

Glad you liked it Matt,

I was just surfing the Westen site and happened to see that. I knew John was from one of these forums, so I thought I would tell you about it.




Matt,
Think hard on who sent this to you.

Doesn't take a bunch of "super" thinking to figure this out.

Here is something that comes up quite often.

"OR: How do you determine the length of time a contract should run?
JA: We like to get a three-year contract minimum, but we prefer five. We will discount the cost to the customer for a longer contract. "
