    Whats the place called that your trying to quote? When I put the address in, Theres lots of things around there that you could plow......by the way you won't get a price because everyones different with their pricing structure... but what we can help you on is the time that a certain lot would take to do. Once you know this multiple this by your hourly rate and bingo, theres your price....

    Oh sorry... if you go into streetview it gives you the best view. It is the pretty small lot with the cars in it. The building behind it says "edmonton motors" and to the left of it there is a church with two signs on the side of it! Thanks again! Hopefully those are good enough directions!

    Id say about 30-40. One double row of parking in the middle and two single rows on the outside about 10 cars each?

    Thats the one I thought it was..... what will you be using for equipment? are they looking 4 u to clear the lanes and then to come back when someone can move the cars? pretty tight area for all those cars.... where are you to put the snow? will they require you to remove it?

    Sorry guys, I forgot to mention, thats not the actual property... the actual property is just down the street but on google maps it is covered by trees and shade so you cant see it at all, so I ended up finding this property not too far away that is about the exact same size and layout so that I could get an accurate estimate from you guys. Only difference about the property I will actually be doing is that there is a large enough space to pile the snow. I will have to haul it away every now and then as it builds up, but the customer is fine with that. Also, most of the cars will be gone when we get there, however if there are any cars still there, it is written up in my contracts that we wont come within 2 feet of any parked vehicle, and that we will return at a later date to clear that snow once the vehicle is removed. (Do the rest of you guys do this?) As for equipment I will just be using 3/4 ton with 8 foot expandable blade and spreader.

    How are you going to remove it with just a 3/4 ton?
