    assuming the property consists of just the two lots, and not any of those houses around the facility. my labor rate is at 90/hr for shoveling and 110/ hr plow
    plow- 60 per push
    shoveling- 45 per push (thats a lot of sidewalk just to shovel, i would snowblow that if you have one)
    lot salt- 30
    side salt- 40 (that is based off using about 4 bags so prices will vary based on how much you are spending per bag here. i pay about 9 per bag for calcium)
    for the first one

    second one
    per push- 45
    per shovel- 40
    per lot salt- 20
    per side salt- 38

    Are you saying you would plow that second one for 45 per push? :dizzy:

    People in my area don't even do a driveway for 45.

    Ha good point. Didn't really consider that one enough. Probably why I NEVER bid per push. Good call though that's not right at all. Maybe like 55?

    My family owns an apartment building with a parking lot half the size of the front lot on one of those buildings shown and we pay $120 per push, 3" trigger with 100ft of sidewalks done. And thats low for the bids we got, guy who does it is a family friend so he gave us a discount.

    not around here, nobody would be able to go that high or they'd have nothing to plow

    I don't see money to be made on that lot for $45, after fuel, insurance expenses, and the costs of running a business/operating a plow I see you paying them to plow. Good luck

    Just to compare, my families building is .222 for a full lot (apartments with at least half the cars there full time so actual plowing is less than .100) and we pay $120 with sidewalks (250 linear feet 3 feet wide) + salt costs.

    Is $90/hr for shoveling the norm for your area? Seems crazy high but then again I'm not in New York
