    I am new to the snow business and was wondering what to charge for a subdivision that is 1 and 1/4 miles of street added together. It has 5 courts and it would take me 4 passes to clear street just pushing snow to the side. Any input would be greatly appriciated. Macomb Michigan. thank you

    Here In Philly We Do A Couple Of Sub D's And We Charge By The Number Of Houses And The Salt Depends If You Are Using Bulk Or Bagged As The Prices Are Usually A Big Swing My Best Advice To You Is Either A Per Push Price +salt Or A Flat Fee With A Depth Fee Up To 6in 6 To 12 Etc. And Dont Forget To Throw The Prices Will Vary With Severity Of Storm Ice Etc. Good Luck
