    Big M - You have to help us here a little. What kind of driveways? Size of driveway? Same goes for lot pricing.
    Every region is different when it comes to pricing. Give some scope parameters and you will get the results your looking for.

    Do a search on "pricing" and you'll find lots of threads, none of which will be very specific because there's such a wide spread between geographical areas, and because as helpful as everyone here is, your direct competitors aren't going to tell you how to underbid them.

    Something eles to think about while you're researching--plowing big square areas (like parking lots) is a little different than plowing long skinny areas (like county roads). If you've only done roads before, pretty soon you'll be learning some new techniques.

    Welcome to PlowSite. :)
