    I need to price a job at a hospital with 115 000 sq/ft of snow removal. There are not many obstacles and mostly straight roads and parking lots for snow plowing.
    They want a total sum per month for winter maintenance with salt included. What would you price this job?


    And 78 000 sq/ft of lawn and landscape maintenance (mostly grass to mow). And also the summer maintenance includes garbage removal, sweeping roads and washing of garbage bins.
    If you do property maintenance what would you price the summer maintenance per month?

    We have a lot of experience in snow removal and a large crew. I just wanted to see if the price I calculated is reasonable and wanted to compare with other companies prices.

    In my neck of the woods, the hospital would go for about $20,000. No idea on the mowing, I don't do that.

    Unless that pic doesn't do the actual property justice.... I would drive over to it and measure it my hand, that way you will know for sure.

    Hey bud,

    Can't PM you yet, but just so you know, alot of Toronto guys here. Chances are most guys don't care, but it can sometimes hurt you if you give up to much info.

    All the best,

    Jon

    Exactly! People are out to screw with you. It doesn't take much to hurt your reputation or search for things online.

    I guess, technically, your base bid could be $1. My base bid is closer to a million though.

    Seriously man, if you want help with a bid, start a new thread and TRY to include a few details. I haven't ran into many apartment complexes that are identical so we really don't have a clue what you are talking about.
