    Our town just got a new Holiday Gas Station. Well not open yet but i would guess in the next month or so. Has anyone worked with them? How are they to work with? Who do i need to talk to to give them a bid and how much would you bid? I contact them by email on there website and got an email back said they would pass the word along and that was four weeks ago and have not heard anything back.. Help please would love to get this gas station(i think)

    Don't know the size. But i drove by and though it would take me 45 min to an hour to push. I want to do it per push. No salt just want to know per push. I really want to know more about holiday and how everyone feels about them??????????????????

    I'd be at $30 a push. If I can plow it in a hr I'd probably come down to $25

    $30 is way too low. $20, a bag of peppered beef jerky (hold out for the big bag!), and 2 Power-Ades is where I'd be.

    You'll need a 14-16' pusher. Do it hourly should be able to net $50,000/storm. Don't take it if it's a national they won't pay you a dime. Also you'll need a v-plow. Don't use any de-icer on the new concrete.

    Those are holiday prices. Do you plow for holiday? I do another gas station in town that I would say is a little smaller and I get $325 a push. I was thinking of bidding them out at $375 a push. So I am guessing I won't get that..
