    Many of my resi customers want me to salt their driveways now, but I am not sure how to price it. Any help is appreciated!

    I would just do it per bag, with a one bag minimum. Very simple mark up the product 250-300%. You can really make some good money if you have a small account that only takes 1/3 of the bag. I would only salt resi's 2 times though, once in the AM before they leave and another right before they get home.
