    I was wondering, when you say you charge "per push" do you mean everytime you plow the driveway during a storm you charge the $45 of what ever you charge? thanks

    If I do a full plow each time then they get billed twice. Will charge less for a clean up or to push just a drift.

    Would you guys consider it reasonable to charge the full price twice if you went twice during the storm so that it was passible.

    It will depend on the terms of your contract.

    Every time I am there and do the whole drive I charge the full amount. I dont do many resis anymore but the ones I do are all in my city. Over 95% of my work is mainly commercial and condo and apartment complexes all within 2 miles of each other. I will charge a smaller amount if I pass one of my resis and they need the berm cleanup up. Never had a problem with them questioning an invoice as it is clearly stated in my contract what they will be getting charged for.
