    eg. 600$ for 8-11" so 12"+ would be a percetage of that, plus that. So say the percentage was 50% then it would be a 900$ bill

    My prices will be different then yours but for example......

    1-3 $100 , 3-6 $200 , 6-9 $300 , 9-12 $400 , 12+ $400 plus $33 per inch over 12

    Note, these are not my prices but used as an example only.....

    I'd personally do it per inch, if you do it all together; say you get a 25" storm then you not going to make much money, but if you charge for a 25" storm every time it goes over 12", then you will probably loose the job next season.

    400 + 33 per inch
    ie 13= 433, 14=466, 15=499, 16= 532, ect.......

    So 33$ would be .33% of your 1-3" rate.

    If you charge by the inch, make sure you bring a tape measure.

    Keep it simple.
