    This was from last year. I couldn't find it sooner to show you guys. Came as an email and it looked like it was typed on an envelope. How's those specs for plow?

    Yep. The company doing it the last 2 years is charging 25k for everything. I was at 30k for just snow.

    You said last year you would be @ $500 per drive seasonal.....I counted 50 in that pic that I could see..... $50,000 for just the driveways, not even counting the roads? Or do I have it wrong?

    Looks like they probably copied the contractors specs and sent them out. That's what I'd call a real well defined spec letter. Lol.

    Looks like they're getting what they're paying for.

    Yes. I did 50x500 and got $50,000. My head qnd numbers simply do not get along. Always been my downfall. Without a calculator and doing it 3x just to be sure, I am fooked.

    60x$500=$30,000. Hey GV is the closest to what he actually bid.dingdingding...
    I have some in my area that change every year too...if I'm slow I bid them but the bids have never gone down to meet the previous prices.
