    We charge at a per 2-6" rate, 7-12" rate x2 and so on, another...we may only plow this one twice, but charge based on 18" it appears. Everyone knows th rates, and no one complains, and they all come back year after year.

    I think you found a LOWBALLER!! I can't believe you would only charge 1 push for a snow like that!! It's going to take you twice as long and it's double the wear and tear!! Your only hurting yourself!!! :nod:

    if every estimate you give is accepted, your to LOW, if none are accepted your to HIGH, if you fall somewhere in the middle your doign something right. It's the same with building houses, if you get every job you must be bidding way to low. But I guess if someone is happy making $10 per driveway when we get 18" more power to them.
