    This property is on my route and I do snow blowing myself for properties that I maintain. This is the only external account that I do the lawn on ie: get paid for just lawn mowing and now snow removal.

    The city walk in front 88' plus 300' of smaller walk around the 4 family building.Plus the drive in b/w the two garages and one pass in front of the garages.

    I estimate 1/2 hr - 3/4 hr on avg.(loading/unloading and sating. $60 per hr too much for snow blowing? I would think that fair similiar to mowing. So, $40 each event? Bid seasonal x 20 times = $800 plus salt expense? Or, $45 each event above 1" in order to try and get seasonal? Would appreciate any thoughts. In the city, Milwaukee. I have two stage and single stage blowers. Thanks for any input.That would be $1000 with salt for snow removal for a 4 family. Seems like a lot of money or is that reasonable? I know plowing and snow removal, and it's not easy or desirale work. I am reliable and thorough.

    break it down into square footage, then bid 10cents a sq ft, 12 if you think you can get it. charge that on a 2-3.999" snow then add 50% for every 2-3" over that
