    Last year was my first year plowing and only plowed about 18 total driveways. My question is; When plowing the driveway do you typically shovel sidewalks, walkways, stairs, etc..,

    For Commercial I bid sidewalks separate, for residential I include the side walks in the bid, unless its a large sidewalk. I hope that helps:nod:

    All my snow removal is residentts and some of my people want the walks done and some don't. I bill them separately - Plowing and shoveling.

    I have had 1 person in the last 4 years say he didnt want the sidewalks done.....therefore, I include sidewalks in every bid I do; residential and commercial :)

    Most of my snow removal is commercial lots, some of my people want the walks done and some don't. I seek out business that require no shoveling or very little.
