    I'm sure theres someone around you thats already a member-think about suppliers too, both materials and equipment, they're generally great references. Give Landscape Ontario a call and explain your situtation-they may have a solution. Good luck.

    Once you become a member, you'll get a monthly magazine sent to you, full of interesting industry articles and adds. Training, courses on numerous topics, certification, insurance discounts, BTW, the discounts available to members is huge, and as a bonus, your company is now recognized as being a member of the Trade Association. You can learn alot through the networks there. Its well worth the investment.

    Good luck in you new venture-Guess the fuel prices are killing you in the trucking biz. The supply biz is just as competitive as any other, and if you can get retail pricing from a trade customer-it may only be a one time deal when they're in a jam.

    Can anybody recommend a supplier of triple mix in the Aurora/Newmarket area. We would be needing a few tri-axle loads.
