    what do you guys charge for a flat seasonal rate for typical suburban driveway?

    one car wide maybe thirty or forty ft long?

    two cars wide?

    I realize prices vary tremendously from area to area, just trying to get a ball park. I've been telling people $350-$500.

    Thanks in advance.

    the way to figure a seasonal, is to know what to charge per visit, then know the average amouint of plowable events for your trigger, then multiply your per push price by the amount of events & like magic you got a reasonable seasonal price.

    doesn't that seem ridiculous?

    At approx. 20 plows per season, his price is $7.50 per plow?

    I'm figuring $15- $20. per plow for a regular driveway.

    Is that too high for upstate NY?

    Tiered pricing, start where you want to be and if no bites drop a little till you start getting signups.

    I just finished all the quotes for this winter. My topical driveways are based on the last 3 years of visits. Most driveways are 20$ per blow or 500-600 for the season. Hope it helps. I'm in sw ontario

    150$ per season? Really? And I thought we were low in West Island Montreal... 250$ I am charging the same as I was in 98 before I put out for John Deeres. And some Aholes out here are going lower. .. Some people just leave too much money on the table..

    Around here a suburban driveway that parks 4 cars, 2x2, would be anywhere from 500-700 for the season, depends on the company and amount of shoveling involved, however there are many people who do it for less, but these are just some guy in a truck and not a real company.
