I know its July BUT - need help with estimating quotes for CONTRACTUAL resi snowplown
A few of the accounts that i landscape for are asking how much it would be to include snow removal for a year long contract. The problem is this last winter was my first year in the snow plowing biz and i plowed maybe 5-7 times on NONcontractual accounts. I live in Albany, NY and am not sure how many times i should guestimate that i will be out there plowing. 2 years ago we got a TON of snow and i do not want to shoot myself in the foot if i don't cover myself. I am leaning towards getting ALL contract agreements for this upcoming season if possible. I am still not sure how much i should be plowing and know that guys say you can charge different ways like per push, but im a rook and push a lot as i am still learning really how to operate. I WILL NOT GO UNDER ANYONE ELSE! I want to try to make it myself and so i need some help. Any advice isDESIRED and if anyone is from ny and can let me know how to charge or what to expect that would be greatly appreciated also. Thanks alot guys, Ron. P.S. I hope that theres still people on this site and not all on lawnsite.com ATM!
I run an 09 f250 reg cab (atm 22k miles) with a 2011 Fisher HD series 8' plow (pretty much brand new cuz i used it 5 times last year).
