    Good Morning gentlemen,

    I'm a newby to the business tho' not new to plowing. I've been asked to quote some commercial jobs locally and my experience is nil in that respect. I have thought about pricing by the square foot...do any of you do so and if so can you give me a general idea of the price range p/sf you use?

    Being retired military I greatly appreciate the digital teamwork I see here and the support you all provide one another.

    Example. you have a lot 10k sqft. and charge 1.00 per sqft. so each plow.you make 10k. So now the next time you plow the lot is only 9ksqft because of the piles now.So your paid only 9k. So your better off doing a per plow or seasonal .
