    Hey, what is the going rate per lot for snow removal in a convenience store with a lot space of about 2500 square feet?

    Hi Michplow
    We need alot more info than just sq ft. What part of Michigan? What is expected from the customers? Salt? Sidewalks? 24 hr coverage? Is there a good place to stack snow? Are there islands or gas pumps? Busy rd that it fronts? All of these things and more will help you figure out the bid. One thing any store with alot of traffic will take longer than a empty lot with no traffic. Thats one reason I stay sway from jobs like these and gas stations. Also you need to know what you want to bid at a hourly rate and then figure out how long it will take. Without all of the above info no one will be able to give you a good number to bid. It would also be better to tell us how many cars the lot will hols and the layout of the property with the building.

    Good Luck Mike
