    comm parking lot what do you charge for a pick up to plow and sand.
    do you charge per truck or is it the same even if you use 3 trucks .
    we arg charging 80 .00 per push for 1truck should it be 80.00 per truck when it is 8 inches or more.and how much for droping sand.:confused:

    You are clearing the lot one time , if you agreed to do it on a per push basis , it doesnt matter if you use 1 shovel , or 10 trucks , you have cleared the lot 1 time and the charge should be 80 dollars. You should never let it reach 8 inches or more plow it every 3 or 4 inches and charge the 80 dollars each time you do the lot . Sanding or salt charge what the market will bear

    pricing would depend on the size of lot. How big is this lot which you are charging 80$ for?

    $80 for just a plow? $80 for plow & sand/salt?

    $80 lot would take me a half hour maybe less working on a 0-3" fall just plow no salting. I don't wait for it to get deeper. These are prices I go by but hey it may be differant in your area. I know up in th U.P. of Michigan they look at you like your crazy at those prices. Even in Kalamazoo in lower Mich. those are steep prices. It all depends on what your area market will pay and how you sell yourself compared to how good you are.
