    Default What do mobile groomers do in awful traffic areas

    When you live in places like the LA basin where even going a couple miles can take an hour during the daytime, WTH do you do? Do you work longer hours to make up for it? Do you groom 1 or 2 less dogs a day and charge more? Most of the day traffic is stop and go all the way starting around 6 am. This concerns me about mobile in the traffic monster areas.

    Use MoeGo , it has the routing system integrate that helped me on scheduling. I never run into heavy traffic any more. Saved me lots of time.

    Sure that would help. I certainly would be charging more in LA and doing at least 1 less groom a day.

    The couple of people I know that mobile in LA area only do a very small radius so it's mostly local neighborhood driving.

    That was my thought cockerlvr. The moego would help but with all that traffic it must have to be a very tight area served daily.

    I was mobile at one time in a congested region and so glad I moved further out. I lived in LA, stop and go all daytime, everywhere. Hated it.

    I groom in Austin, and traffic is horrendous. Tonight it took me almost an hour to go 8 miles. I don't book my appts, so it's hit or miss when I get in. I have learned to find shortcuts and backroads to take.
