    I was wondering how u guys did residential contracts if any? How many lucrative snowfalls is the avg for the midwest ( near IN)? I'm thinking 7-10, but I could be a bit off. I figure for small drives, I'd charge $100-150/season and larger ones more so I'd be making about $15/each removal. On a 4 in snow I could shuvel it myself in only like 15-20m so I was making at times over $45/hr. THat's more than I'm making mowing! But what do u vets think as far as contract pricing?

    I don't know how your market is but $200-$250 per year seems to be average on here

    Wow! If I could get a $200 avg and 20 out of 30 of my customers signed up, I'd have $4,000 for the winter!!! That would certainly pay for at least 2 months of my bills! That would be awesome!

    man up to the table. buy my gmc. and ill put you to work doing comercial accounts this winter. then you wont have to try and goto michigan and sit in a motel trying to get a gig shoveling snow. with your girlfriend.

    pretty simple.
