    Just curious to see how business models vary from place to place.... What's your minimum driveway size? As in, driveways up to this size receive my minimum bid, above that prices go up. For me it's about 2x2.5-3 cars. 12-1500 sq ft area

    Our minimum driveway is probably 2 wide and 3-4 in length depending on the neighborhood.

    We used to do a few driveways over half a mile. Not sure what our minimum was, dad was in charge then, and Ive worked for other companies since then. :(

    My minimum seasonal is $2k discounts for prepay and 3 yr contracts.
    I will also blend with summer services for equal monthly payments. My smallest drive would hold about 20 cars and it belongs to my wife...not sure if she's gonna sign this year, she always complains about the service being last on the route.

    I average $120 - 130 an hour including travel time between driveways. Minimum driveway is $50.00 per event. No paved drives, smallest is about 8 crewcabs ( long beds ) :D. It's the unit of measure here.
