    I have talked with a few around the Fremont area and have found the per hr rate to be all over the board. I have plowed for 14 years as a 1 man crew and have built some great accounts but this year I am expanding with a few more trucks. My question is on pricing by the per truck hr to stay in line with some of the top guys without under cutting others. From what I have heard from others the rate runs from $60 per hr to $120.

    That's low for our area. Of course different areas get different rates.

    Often it depends on the customer.

    Get yourself over 10 posts and I'll send you a pm. While others may be willing, I'm not big on throwing around specifics on an open forum.

    If you have been plowing for 14 years, shouldn't you know what the hourly is for your area ???

    Not saying you haven't, but I have been plowing for 6 years and I know what the average is for my area. I charge more per hour, but we work more efficient than others.

    hey fremont..

    im just down the road,.... pricing, my opinion , adding the extra vehicles is a big expense and liability, so the pricing needs to cover your expenses,and your desired profit margin....

    by the way, how do you like the fact that scheits is now selling plows and plowing commercially, that burns my butt, shouldnt be allowed to be a compeditor if your a supplyer, i wont buy a thing from them
