    Well this is my first year out and i would like to know how to charge for just spreeding salt
    here in Missouri we some times get just ice and no snow so I can't charge to push and spread but for what i am charging on salt it is not worth my time to go and just lay down the salt. So any advice.

    I charge 2 or 3 times what the salt costs me to spread it.

    In a big ice storm that you can't plow you should probably be putting down more salt. So double salt = double the price???

    If your only salting residential driveway then you will need to do a trip charge or application charge cos you will not put enough salt down to cover your costs
