    may seem a little strange to be asking this, but the lingo is getting me.. Been plowing residentials for the past 4 years. I have around 20 of them, and now im getting into commercial plowing as well as some larger apartment complexes.

    THe wordage I keep hearing is "pushes" and charging per push on here... Do you mean if you charge lets say $80 per push and the driveway takes 3 pushes to clear driveway your charging $240 per clearing of driveway?? If so that seems high.. but hey my pricing may be off and Im willing to change my pricing..........:drinkup:

    When bidding "per push" you are giving the total cost of doing a complete job ONE time.

    For instance, I take care of several different gas stations. This past week I plowed each of them 4 times throughout the course of the storm. When I send the companies an invoice I am going to charge my "per push" rate times 4.

    Hope that clears it up for you...
