    Quick question...I am charging per pass (approximately every 4 inches of snowfall). Am I charging too much?

    i.e. Do you charge $30 per storm, or do you charge $30 per pass?

    Thanks for the help!

    I start my driveways off @ $23 (I figure 2 passes) and go up from there. If I have to come back during the same storm, I only charge 1/2 of the original driveway rate. What I look for when pricing a driveway:
    1. How long
    2. How Wide
    3. How steep of an inclince or slope down
    4. Any curves or twists
    5. How much landscaping/grass/etc is along the driveway
    Hope this helps
