    Seasonal. This area around 25-30 pushes make a seasonal contract.

    We do all per push. Makes the bidding a little easier since you do not have to worry about undercutting yourself if there is a big winter. Downfall is a lot of paperwork with no guaranteed amount of money every year. In cases like last year we had two plowable events and salted 9 times it would of been great to have an annual contract with a set amount no matter what. I can't speak for everyone but a lot of it has to do with personal preference and the types of accounts you are going after. To some the only way they will take on a new customer is with an annual contract only.

    Annual Contract = $$$ (When Bid Properly & An Average Winter)
    Per Push = $$$ (With A Good Season & Good Bid)

    Either way when done right there is payup to be had.

    Same frequecy, mostly seasonal and enough per pushes to offset the events operating expenses.
