    First of all, thanks for all the great info on this site.

    I have been doing residentials for a couple of years now, but was asked by one of my customers to do his small commercial lot. I have the contract on this property already, just wanted to see how fair a price I gave.

    Property is approx 5000 square with a 35 X 100 rectangle parking lot behind the building and a 15 X 100 driveway to leading to the back.

    I I
    I I 100 feet by 15 to back
    I I
    Building I I
    I I
    35 I

    There is a small walkwat to the front which will need shoveling and will ice control with non corrosives. I can push all the snow to the back left of the lot and there are no obstructions. A fence lines the back end of the lot.

    I am getting Per 24 hr storm:

    $250 from 1.5 to 5 inches with salt (approx 200 pounds per app/ 2 apps per storm) and Walks

    $400 for 5.1 to 12 inches with salt (3 salt apps estimated) and Walks

    $10 an inch over 12 inches + $400 (hope we don't get a 24 incher with this $10 per inch stuff)

    The guy that owes the place is a good guy, doesn't seem to get too stressed about this stuff, and wants the lot cleared by 8:00 am if it an overnight storm. If it is a daytime storm the place closes early. There should never be any cars in the lot to deal with.

    Thanks for your responses and thanks for all the great posts I have been reading

    Sorry about the crappy diagram

    The diagram I made was didn't take with the submission of the post.

    In essence the lot looks like a flag.

    It took me forver with the space bar and capital I's so it is quite dissapointing to see it look so shabby. thanks again.
