No problem. I always thought least expensive meant cheapest.. Now Competative is something else, and is a good thing.. Just my opinion..
I wasn't trying to be insulting... I agree good verbal service costs nothing to be good at or very little at least, example returning phone calls etc.... Good mechanical & technical service DOES cost money to have good tools, equipment, schooling & info, etc....

I do wish you good luck to you and your new business. I did not mean to offend anyone. I just run my business differently and am very selective in the clients I take on. The clients I have are usually not people that are interested in price alone. I base this on my personal experience being in business over the years. You to will find out the good and the bad about being a business owner as time goes on and the more you learn what works for you. I should know. I have made alot of changes since I opened my doors. Some things that seemed like a good idea 10 years ago ... would not even be consider by me today. Live and learn. J

I hope you don't want to provide low quality service, apparently there's enough of that out there.

Shoot me a PM, where you are starting your bus? I also do business in the Cheboygan area, not marine related but I know tons of people with boats and I have room to store many boats indoors. I was up there boating last weekend. I love the area. Good Luck

Dutchman Bay Storage in East Jordan charges $10 per linear for the winter.
Let me know what you come up with.

Huge typo on my part. HIGH quality, low cost. I haven't been getting the reply emails so I didn't know about my typo until this morning.
