    I live in Maryland and this is my first season in Snow removal. I have a Large new home builder that i currently do a large amount of flood restoration for. I have the chance to do snow work for them but i dont how to price the work. They are looking for a per hour price for the work. I have 3 P/U trucks all with plows. I have 2 in bed spreaders. The work will consist of plowing the entrance roads, driveways at the model homes, and probeley sidewalks. What would be a good hour;ly rate to give them.

    What where you plowing before? How much are you going to be plowing. 3 pickups can get a lot of road plow quick.

    The going rate as a sub with a pick up is $75 an hour. As the contract is between $105 and $115 an hour. Salt is by the ton.

    This is my first year pushing for my self. I worked the last 2 winters for a good friend. I need a price to give for salt. I think i am going to hit them around 90.00 per hr. because of the amount of work they have to offer

    Well it all depends on the amount of salt you are going to be using. Is it going to be bulk, bagged. etc. type of spreaders.

    You really need to come to the maryland meet. Do a search on here for it. Its this thursday.
