    I am having trouble figuring out what the areas going rates are, everyone in my area wont say because they dont want to be undercut, but i am trying to find out so i can be competitive and fair, so far i seem to be high on all my bids and other contractors are getting them all, so im just wondering what everyone else in the region is charging so i have a better idea, since none of the local guys are any help.

    just price it at 45 per man hour and 160 per pickup salter load used.

    Not the small truck salters but the large truck bed salters.

    well i dont use a v-box all i got is a tailgate spreader, ive seen for salt everyone seems to be taking their salt cost x3 tp get what they charge for salt, but i guess im looking more for the going rates on the plowing.
