Too many customers have their hay storage in impossible places, down aisles 50 ft long, down over a hill you cannot back the truck down, up gravel roads you cannot pull a trailer up, etc.
Been there done that. When I was still making small squares I had a place that you pulled up under the hay mover, then while standing on the top layer the end of the hay mover was almost chest high. first layer wasn't bad, but then you had to leave some hay under the end of it and start carrying the bales up to the top layer to get em on the hay mover. The last 40 bales or so were a real joy and they never had any help around either. Of course they never cleaned up any of the loose hay from under the end of it either so you always ended parking in the biggest mudhole on the whole farm. hay mover was also set up steep enough that about every fifth bale would roll end over end down it and end up back on the trailer. After the third time I refused to go their anymore.

Custom baling I had trouble waiting on wagons from customers who assimed they were the only people i was baling for. So in order to speed the process along I jumped in. Which became free labor. Then they would just hire fewer workers. So when time came to pay up I asked for the same as the help. And that seemed to fix the problem.
