    Hey guys just wondering what your thoughts are on these 2 lots for a daycare I was asked to bid I highlighted where the snow is to be stacked as well as the 2 entrances for one lot and the second is pretty much self explanatory any feedback is appreciated.

    How set are they about getiting all the snow into those set areas? I would hate to have to maneuver around those parking curbs circled in red. Seems like it would increase your time a good bit. What about sidewalks in front and around building, and salt?

    If those are curbs that would be even more of a nightmare to get all the snow to the left side. I see those yellow marks at the 2 entrances and other parking spots on the right and left side.

    The curb stops are definitely going to be tough to get around might see if we can move them for the winter if they aren't permanently set there and after visiting the site there are shrubs bordering the rest of the property that would be damaged if snow is stacked there and definitely will need salt and I'm being told their maintenance guys are going to take care of the walks

    I'm NEW to all this as well and if I had no input from others, I might bid $225 per push. Waiting to see what others have to say. This is how we learn.

    Thanks for the input and are you thinking with the car stops in place or removed for that price and no sand/salt or shoveling correct?

    Are those parking blocks in the middle of the entrance. Also I am guessing the yellow is where the snow goes, so how are you gonna get past the parking blocks? Now you also have parking blocks by the sidewalk, who is gonna shovel that out? Especially since they are appear to be handicap spaces.

    I outlined the entrances in blue and area where snow is to be stacked in yellow and the area of concern circled in red. The shoveling as of now is going to be taken care of by their maintenance crew. The parking blocks are my biggest issue not sure how much theyre going to impact my time but im thinking significantly.

    Would your shoveling price include by the main road or just around building? also is the plowing as the site stands or if i can remove some of the parking stops to make the job a little easier? Thanks

    How are you gonna get past the blocks to stack snow? If they are not pinned great but who moves them? If they are pinned it is a disaster waiting to happen. Almost guarantee that at least one will be hit over the course of the winter. This will leave you with a piece of rebar just waiting to tear bits of your truck or plow off. If you stop pushing at the blocks you could run out of room in no time. Just be sure you price for the PITA factor.
