    You are going to have to give us more info than that. "average" size is going to be different to everyone. how many storms a year do you get and what is the average size storm? what the heck is "tim horton's"?

    You should charge greater that what your "average" expenses would be.

    I base my timmy's, on average 17 snowfalls. They want it kept up, during the storms, and need a good clean up, including drive thur's, after midnight. I do ours for 2,500.00, and salt is triple what it costs me to buy. Hope this helps, and make mine a double double Also I use a loader and remove the snow, bout every 4-5 snowfalls, as they have little storage room, and of course, this is extra payup
