    Hey everyone! i have plowed for years and this will be my first year on my own, so that means i need to start bidding:eek: a little worried about it, just wondering if anyone could help me out on this-

    I figure that there is around 13,000sq feet(i think) havent ever done a storage place before im guessing they can be a pain but not sure.

    What could be a good price to possibly bid this at?

    Well at least you have the truck and plow for this job. Can you get your hands on a loader? Those ends will fill up fast.

    are there curbs at the edges or can you push the snow easily in the grass?

    I think you missed a ZERO. 120ydsX120yds is 130,000sq'
    If the buildings cover 1/2 the area then you have 65,000sq' to plow.
    Those are long runs if you are moving all the snow to the end. Some of the runs have to be 500' or better.

    There were some threads on here last year for storage units. I would try a search and see what you can find.
