    I am biding a commerical account for snow removal and salting. This company asked for a per pound price so I gave them one and they responded back and asked if they were to buy the salt could I load my own truck and spread it and what would I charge. My question is how do I figure out what to charge Due to the fact I will not be making as much on salting and the wear and tear on my loader and truck + salter.what would you do and how do I reconfigure my pricing.

    How much were you planning on making off a bag of salt or per pound if you were to buy it?

    I would charge the same to salt it as what I would charge to plow it especially if you use their salt
