    I am rather new to industry and was wondering if any body from the Grand Rapids, Wyoming Michigan Area or any area in Michigan. I was just wondering what was the ball park figure for Per-Push and Seasonal for a 2-car by 2-car driveway per. Plus how much extra to do the walk and steps, and salt as i do not want to low ball this season.
    Thanks in advance for any help or input

    I get $18 per push for an average driveway. I havent ever offered salt, but would figure at least 5 to 10 bucks extra depending on size of walk being done

    I'd say $85-$100 per push for an average small driveway. I heard they get top dollar in MI. You should be able to clear $300/hr by yourself in one truck doing resi's, or your doing something wrong. But to be sure, you better ask Mark O. He's in your area.

    Here they go for around $40 with sidewalks. Nobody wants to have somebody just plow....

    I think Ive seen this thread....asked three different ways, three different times. $15 dollars. Salt price + profit. Youll find out soon if your making enough or not after 2 months. Just remember transmissions are not cheap

    way up here it would be $10-15 for the push and another $5 for the walks. i'd say 50% of the people here own a 4x4 and a plow. thats why i dont do drive ways. too many out there doing them for free.
