    Hello All,

    I'm in the process of throwing numbers together for this store and am looking for some advice.

    Area's with the red in the right rear are a customer pickup area which is covered and a dumpster.

    There is the main entrance walkway in the front and a little bit of shovel work in the rear of the building.
    The green spot is the loading dock area.
    Building sits in a shared lot. Blue areas are drive lanes and parking spots.

    Prices based on 2-4" push with salt and calcium additional. I'm figuring with my F350 and Wideout that a 2-4" push should take about 50 minutes to plow complete figuring with some traffic. Salt time being additional.

    Thanks for any input!

    If that were mine to do here, $180 a push. Salt, 140-ish, depending on the cost of material.
    Where are you in the world? Seems like some areas of the world would bid that at 27.50 a push...

    I'm in Bensalem Pa, so Metro Philadelphia..

    I was figuring somewhere between $175 to $225 per push and $185 for salt.. And yes, after thinking about it, it looks more in the 1.5 hour range depending on traffic.

    35 to 40? You mean 350 to 400?

    I enlarged the picture and looked again...I wonder where the snow will be piled?
    I now think I would be at 200 a push, maybe 220. Would need to know more about stacking spots and see it in person..
    Salting is something I have no experience with yet...so I will say I would want 100 per hopper full to do it, and add the cost of material to that.
    My salter will or would be a 2 yard max.
