    Hey guys Im starting to do some residential snow removal. I have a 4x4 atv with a 48" plow and a 24" 2 stage snow blower. I am just waondering if any one can tell me what a good price for me to charge for a say 100' x 10' drive. and how much shoud the price go up for the different amounts of snow. Also is it worth it to salt what do you charge for that ?

    that driveway sounds like a 75 .00 or 100.00 driveway you cant just give salt away you would have to charge more

    For a straight shot 100ft I'd probably charge around $50 for 3"-6"... maybe $65 if there's garages to drag out. 6"-9" it would increase by 50%. ($75) 9"-12" would increase again to $100. You get the idea.

    You don't want to price yourself out of the game... don't lowball but be somewhat competitive.

    For salt I usually charge around the same as a push.

    I wouldn't think that it makes any difference what you use to do the job. The price is based on the final result--snow out of driveway. With a blower and 4-wheeler plow you may even be able to do a cleaner job around the edges than you could with a truck as long as you get it plowed before someone drives over it and packs it down.
