    I just got a call from an old friend and he has two lots he wants me to push and his parents house. i have never tried to bid out my own work for the winter i have always salted for the company i use to work for and this year i was sub contracting for my new job. i want to go out on my own next year so this is a good step for me 2 get this. i was just wondering in general if i should just price it out per push so i can get an idea of how to bid on things next year?

    if you know what your contractor gets for the work you subcontract for, you could compare them to your 2 lots.

    Try to find out what they paid for the last year or two. If you are comfortable with the number, match it. This should be fair for them, and you get to build some experience.

    if you know what your contractor gets for the work you subcontract for, you could compare them to your 2 lots.OR if he's a good old friend maybe he can get you in the ballpark this one time since it's new to you, (assuming they aren't new lots and have been plowed in past years)
    good luck either way.
