    So little over an acre to plow?
    A general location (state) would be helpful since rate vary from area to area.
    Along what do you plan to use for equipment would be helpful too.
    Per push or seasonal?

    Everything Buff said.

    And to upload a picture, go to advanced.

    see the paperclip icon, click on that and then choose file and click upload.

    When you post it will be there.

    If you don't see the upload button, resize the box by moving it over with your mouse till you do.

    Kinda hard to tell from the picture but that looks wide open.
    If it is and just over 1 acre, that shouldn't take you more than 1 hour to plow with a 8 foot blade, put wings on it and you well cut that time down.
    Get a v plow and do it in half hour.

    But I see its a dollar store, make sure your dealing local and not corporate, there was a thread posted within the last month about dollar stores not paying I believe, I'm not certain if it was just a certain state or all over.
    But look into that before accepting any contract, just use the search function here.

    yes basically wide open, unless store is open and cars are parked in front.. there is a strip to the right 30 feet wide and 70x wide area for deliveries and then comes around hte side 50 foot wide..plenty of room to push..

    In my area we would be $105 - $120 Per Push and $102.00 for salt.

    Right at 1 hour to plow on 2-3 inches no cars.

    Hope this helps.
