    I got a call sunday night for a leaf pick up before Christmas. Ha. Leaf panels are off and the v box salt spreader is bolted in.
    I made some calls to see who was interested in doing the work and he charged him double. It still not getting pick up till after the 25th.
    People are idiots.
    Why would you wait that long. Its not going to get cheaper the longer you wait.

    Where are you from? If you wanna dick around with lunatic lazy price hunters be my guest. But the recent snow only made this situation worse.
