    S 10 call me on my cell and I will talk you through this,since I'm local I have a little better understanding of local pricing. They will most likely want you to provide them with a copy of your liability ins.
    These are some of the things you will need to think about,how long will it take you to clear the lot? Where do you push the snow and stack it? How are you going to salt this lot? Tailgate spreader or vbox? bag salt is more dollars to you,but I have never seen a vbox in a S10. I do have a tailgate spreader for sale if you do need one. Is this a retail or a office lot,retail will need to be done more than a office that closes at 5:00 by that I'm talking about salting.
    How are you going to do the sidewalk? Thats a fair amount of work for one man. Do they want salt on the sidewalk also,if so you will need a walk behind spreader.$$$
    All of the above you need to think about,this job will take you some time to keep up and clean,since you are pushing snow with a S10 it will take you a little longer than a guy with a 8 foot blade. My cell is on from 9am to around midnight. Cell number 248 -431-6443
    Regards Mike
