    I was just curious to know if anyone has ever plowed a Home depot or knows of anyone that plows a home depot? Do you bid it for the entire season or do you charge a price per time?


    Thanks,

    I have not plowed for them myself, but I know they can be cheap. really only want you to come out once in a 24 hour period....or less.

    many times you can work out aggreements with their main offices in new jersy for the pa stores and get a better rate.

    Hope that helps.

    I would bid a Home Depot by the hour per truck.I wouldn't bid it seasonal or per inch.Thats just me.

    I have a proposal for one near me sitting on my desk. You can have it if you want it. They want a seasonal price, to be broken up over 4 months.

    Although not all of them operate this way, some of them are bid by the hour. So to answer your questions... it depends... some do and some dont.

    I'd be interested to see what rates you came up with. I have my bid finished but it can't hurt to compare. Can you please email it to me at loveridgelawn@yahoo.com

    Thanks,

    retail

    As with many retail stores it is good to plow before the employees get there. The HDs around here open at 6:30 am and many employees show up between 5:30 and 6:30. A lot earlier than other retail!
