    I ma sure that question was asked before, so if there is a tread, please link it.

    Let's say after a snowstorm you drive down the road and a homeowner stops you and asks you to plow his flat 12ft wide, 100 ft long driveway and just stock the snow at the end of the driveway. What would you charge ?

    What exactly is meant by "per push" ?

    Thanks all.

    how much snow?
    2" is a lot different than 2'

    I'm not stopping for anything for under $20

    Probably $30, unless it was really wet and heavy snow then it would be $40

    Not because it's any harder to plow, but because he'll pay more to get rid of it because he totally doesn't want to shovel it.

    Older person? I'd probably go a little less (i'm a sucker)

    Political sticker I don't agree with on his car, I'd probably charge more. :rolleyes:

    Of course, all prices are local, and here it's pretty spendy. In the UP it would probably be less.

    I still wouldn't stop for less than $20 though.

    Basically
    I figure they want to tax us, why shouldn't I tax them?

    A Hilary/Obama sticker might get a "sorry, can't help ya, call the .gov" :waving:

    That seems low. My regulars are at $55.00 per storm . I would charge the same for anyone flaging me down.
