    What is a fair price to plow a maybe 150 yd long driveway with 3 parking spots? I was thinking $75? Too low or too high?

    $75 for 1-6 then $100 for 6-12? Does that sound fair? I am in rural/suburban PA. Farms but lots of developments

    It all depends on how long you think it would take you. If you think it will take 20 minutes, just figure out what you "need to make per hour", and do the math. If they say no, walk away. Not rocket science. Also, how far is it out of your way from anything else you may be plowing? If it's a drive, factor that in as well.

    I have 3 other driveways in the same neighborhood as this one
    Does what I worked out sound fair or is it too high?

    Like I said earlier, how long does it take you and what do you need to make per hour? Answer those questions and I can tell you if your pricing is correct or not.
