    I am fairly new to snow plowing. I live in southside Virginia so we do not get a great deal of snow but I have had the owner of two low income apt complexes call wanting me to work up a contract for them.

    Site 1:
    1000 Ft of sidewalk
    40 car lot (they only want the drive cleared, not parking spots)

    Site 2:
    3,200 ft of sidwalks
    44 car lot (they only want the drive cleared, not parking spots)

    The two complexes are only two blocks from each other.
    I have a 35 hp kubota tractor with front end loader and grader.
    If I get the two contracts, I will purchase a snow blower.

    I already have a parking lot here in town with no sidewalks that I charge $65 per hour.

    They have stated they did not want a by the hour job. If I were to get this job I would definitely get a snow blower.
