    Ok as the title says what do you think its worth??? the only pain is the fenced in area asides from that its fairly open.

    The red area is whats to be quoted the blue is fenced in area (blue), total plowed area is just over 83x330

    Salt and snow removal from site will be extra


    Thanks again to any one that gives there input

    100 US per plow or maybe 3,000US for the season. I don't like to bid from overhead views.

    Grandview, it's official, your a lowballer. :D

    I would charge $150-175 depending on wether you must get the snow out of the fenced area or not.

    It's under an acre. How neat does it need to be inside the fenced in area? And what about up near the building? That's going to suck with a pickup. Almost looks like a Skid job to me. If they have a maintenance crew for the corners, maybe the $100. If it needs to be spotless, more.

    The idea of pricing over the Internet is ludicrous when you consider the differences in snow accumulation, economic and business conditions, price of living indexes, etc . In heavy snow belt regions plowing is cheaper by the inch then in the limited snow areas where equipment expense has to be recouped on lesser volume/occurance. The only price estimates that are going to be accurate for your geographic area are those from guys right in your own backyard. I wouldn't trust them, expect it to be much higher then realistic if the adviser intends to bid it themselves.

    A 12 pack and a fifth of rum.

    Geez basher, such a buzzkill with all those pesky facts and logical reasoning.

    It's about 45 minutes worth of work.
    You figure it out with your rates for your area. (although I agree with the range of the other rates already posted)

    simple and fast except for the backdragging of the fenced in area.
