    Has anybody heard of this theory, if so how much do you charge this way?? It doesnt sound bad in theory if there are not a bunch of curbs and obstructions. I have thought about counting and deviding by my current pricing but it doesn't seem to work out.:dizzy:

    I've heard of it and you're right it won't work. How big are the spaces? Are they 9' wide? 10' wide? How wide is the drive lane? Or aren't these contractors plowing these? Are they only plowing parking spaces?

    You're selling time, not parking spaces or square feet. Determine how much time it will take to service a customer, that is all you need to know until you start applying materials.
