    Just some quick beginner questions here. I don't want to low-ball here, I am just curious how to price bids?

    How much do you typically charge for the average residential driveway (standard 60' long x 15' wide)? I was told $25-$35, is this about right?

    For commercial lots I know I need to charge per square foot. I was told to charge $100 every 50,000 square feet (about 1 hour), is this about right?

    Thanks for the help!

    My truck:
    Dodge 2003 HD (3/4 ton)
    5.7L V8 Hemi (4x4)
    8 Ft. Fisher (minute mount)
