Please don't take offense to this but I don't think you have a clue as to how to do this on your own.

If you've been doing this for as long as you say you have this lot should take you an hour price out. It's easy. Man/equipment hours plus material. And since you've yet to even guess as to how much you bthink worth, I have no other conclusion but to call bullsh-t.

Per push prices can work out if you set them up the right way. I tell my per push customers that they trig in four inch increments. Each additional four inches is 70% of the initial cost, and that seems to be working well for me. "Per push" can have several definitions depending on who you talk to. To me, it means if you have a 12 inch storm, I will be coming three times, and each time I come, you will pay X dollars.

Im not trying to be rude but your post says that you have plenty of equipment and manpower, so that tells me that you been doing this for some time so this shouldn't be hard for you to figure out. And what Grandview said see how many units are in the complex and figure out what a round about number for each unit. Every one of those units pay a maintenance fee. All I do is commercial plowing and I just picked up another 175 unit just like this one. And you also said that your not responsible to clean up the mess when they move there cars is "FALSE". I been through this with plenty of property management companies and if you don't do a clean up then don't expect to do that contract next year.

You're not being rude, you're simply coming to the only logical conclusion that the information provided by him formulates. And that is that he hasn't the slightest clue as to how to bid something this size. And that is ok, but really, when people take time to give a thought out response, and he responds with "any one else have an idea" it's like he already has his mind made up about something, and is just asking a question to ask the question, rather than to get any beneficial input.

That place looks like it would suck to do at night....since the entire perimeter area is parking. Where can you put all the snow? At the townhouse complex I do they have until we leave the site to get their cars out of their driveways or they are out of luck.

Agreed you have to have a much better idea what there expectations are for snow placement on the property, and where it is acceptable to pile snow. You just gonna bury all those cars with nice big windrows? Place could turn into a real mess after the first good storm and your gonna be getting calls. To the OP, save yourself the headache and stick to those lots, sounds like thats your strongpoint anyways.

I am subbed out to do two complex a little bit bigger than the ones you have described. I plow both complex`s in a 3-6 inch storm in little inder 6 hours. I also have a lot more room to put snow that what your picture shows. The reason i can do them so quickly is because i have a shoveling crew of 6-10 guys and each complex shoveling snow away from the cars.
