    Hi guys...just curious as to what you would charge to do this lot? Per push and/or season pricing if you would. Red is definite, blue is an add-on possibly. I gotta get the hang of bidding and this is where I start I guess :) Thanks to everyone who contributes!

    Is any of the green space good for stacking snow? The farther you have to carry it, the more you have to charge.
    Going on the premise that I can stack snow where I want, I will say ★ for my area★ I would bid it @ $150 a push, salt & sand I would ask $140. That is for the red. For the blue, add $60 per push, $50 per sand / salt.
    Seasonal, x those numbers by 22. Again, ★for my area★....

    Good luck, I hope you win the contract!

    To the OP......What are your thoughts on this Lot???.....What I would charge in Michigan has No bearing on what you would charge in MD....

    How long do you think this lot will take you with the equipment you have???...


    May I make a suggestion to all of you guys that are curious about a price...

    Go out and Buy John Allins book...Managing Snow and Ice....Its a Good jumping off point for all of you guys....I am in no way endorsing the Author...But, the book has some good basic information that will help....

    This site is good for ALOT of things...Price shopping is NOT one of them...payup

    Is it going to be free of cars like the picture? If not that will make it take much longer. What size is it? findlotsize.com

    With my truck and plow, I figure 1 hour would get it done. Maybe a bit more. But not 30 minutes.

    RED
    Per Push = $210 2 inch trigger
    Season = I don't do it but For $5460 I would.
    Blue
    Per Push = $55
    Season = $1430

    Now that is for my area, Madison WI / Time 1.5 to 2 hours Red / .25 to .5 on the Blue
    I do not try to set any land speed records, If it gets broken I have to fix it. :)

    Seasonal is hard around here. Cause our weather is so unpredictable. Last year we went out 10 times. 3 years before that we went out a total of time times for salt. No pushing

    I'm closer to Defcons price. $30, 1 bag of hot pork rinds and a case of Schlitz. That's my standard "beer plower" price
