    I just started doing lawn maintence this year and love it, customers are very happy also. I am quoting my first snow plowing job this week and am not sure how to go about quoting this. How does per push work? I will be using a 91 F-350 4x4 dually with poly mold plow. I also have a Western salter. I am in the Detroit Mi. area and do not know how to find the average snow falls. Thanks

    Not sure the total feet etc. I counted the parking spaces and roughly 125 plus a small drive way and truck well. Thanks

    With one that size I would personally do it by the hour.

    Is it about $100.00 - 125.00 per hour? Is that how I should quote it on the contract? Thanks

    Hourly price varies everywhere. :nod: Either way, make sure you quote them that price "per truck".
