    I was asked to bid this building complex. I will leave my skid on site and have to take care of sidewalks.

    In all fairness, he said the skiddy would stay on site but there's no mention of trucks or how many sidewalk guys he's going to utilize. The OP needs to give a lot more information about this account in order to get the help he's looking for. Personally I'd go with a skid steer a truck and a backhoe/loader

    In West Virginia?
    $18,000 per year (assuming 12 visits @ 2" trigger?) All inclusive- plowing, shoveling, sanding.

    If that were here in NH where I am, I would bid it at $26k a year. Or thereabouts. More visits, probably 22 times.

    I would charge $100 per hour for returns to clean up where cars didn't get moved. Separate charge above and beyond the seasonal.

    All that for 10k per season ;)

    Do you still run manual angle blades? Or is power plow referring to something else?
