    I have a nice opportunity at a hotel but do not know how to price it. The specs are below:

    Only Plowing

    5 Level Parking
    Bus Way
    Valet Circle
    Streets around Building

    Any pricing knowledge would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Don't push all the snow in one spot on that parking ramp.

    Needs pixs of this place. Do you have idea of what you would charge? Hotels are 24 hrs places. And you need to come back each time to clean out spots after check out time. If that ramp is open air more then likely need a skid to dump the snow over the top so it won't collapse

    even a rough estimate with just the description provided would be appreciated. (5 level parking garage, valet circle, private bus way lane, streets on all sides - they just want plowing

    Hotels consume time especially if they have a restaurant that the general public uses. Multiple trips to clean they are 24/7 operation. How big is this place?
