    :waving:yes i have been plowing for 12 years for other companies. But now im on my own never did the pricing. Wandering if anyone could give me an idea on pricing. Like 2 car driveway. 4 car driveways and do you I try to set a hourly rate for lot plowing. And just estimate how long it will take? Also Im not sure about how to charge for ice melt. Do i figure time or time plus charge for material? If anyone can help it would be much appreciated.

    Go drive the areas like you would do if you wee plowing and then add some time just because you WILL need it.
