    Hello, I am new to this site and this is actually my first post. I have a way of how I quote, but I am having some issues with the following.

    #1 Disclosed National Corporate HQ Building. Approx 1,180 parking spots. How do I normally quote? X amount of $ x parking spot etc etc.

    #2 Disclosed National Corporate HQ Building, Approx 986 parking spots.

    Mind you, I am not tying all three (Plow, Walks Salt into one, but seperating), and removal is an entire different entity.

    I would ask what the client is looking for in regards to price, honestly that big would be a seasonal price, or per inch.

    What's the the total SQFT of parking/drives? What's the total SQFT of walks/ramps/stair?

    Yearly avg?

    Where you located?

    These do sound large, what type of resources you have?

    How many cars in the way? Islands? Square pockets hemmed in by curbing? Distance to stacking area? So many things to account for....good luck.
