    Do it for $36 per plow. That should be 'cheap' enough

    I assume it's just the Walgreens lot. Isn't this through a management company? If so ,they should already have a price for you.

    Not all of us over here are like Rich Arlington and John Allin. I'll concede too many around here are but I'm sure there's enough lowball flunkies in buffalo as well.

    You guys are bad, he comes a new guy who's about to get in the pooper and and you are hiding the TP....

    OP,

    There is a nightly drop box located on the building, after doing your services, drop a 20 and call it a day. Hope that's all you lose.

    Good luck getting much help here with a user name like that. Their isn't anything cheap in our line of work, then here comes someone using the name and knows nothing.

    I understand you're trying to educated but u really put yourself behind the 8ball
