    Does anyone know what the typical rate is for plowing upper/lower duplexes? I plow for my brother in-law who has them. They start out one car wide then open up to a three car at the end. I have three of them in succession but access to them is limited when other cars are parked in the driveway or on the road. Then I have his personal drive across the street. It is one car wide all the way up to the garage. Limited access again. He has a fence on one side of the drive and the house on the other. He also has a pellet stove exhaust sticking out into the driveway. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks guys & girls.

    I would say $35 and you plow what you can if a car is in the way plow around it. Why don't you just ask your brother-in-law?

    Even though he his my brother in-law. I tend to think twice about asking him certain things. Kinda like when you go to buy a car. Let them talk first. Would you pay $10K for something that is selling for $8K? He is cheap. A bath in motor oil wouldn't even help him.

    okay sooooo, are you planning on taking these accounts from him or are you getting a truck and plow and going to find others?

    You'll be better off staying away from family.

    How true it is. . . do family for free at the end of your route, or avoid them all together. Especially the cheapo's.
