    We just are getting into the snow plow business and can't determine what is the best way of pricing; per hour or per push. Don't usually get heavy snow in Delaware but we are expecting a bad winter.....

    Don't know about DE rates, but you should have prices figured out for hourly, per push, and seasonal for all bids. Different customers will ask for all different pricing structures.

    The DELDOT site has a chart of the average prices for residential snow removal. Look under the civic association reimbursement link.

    Remember
    Those numbers are for 4" or better storm.
    do not include salt
    are based off an average
    Commercial rates are higher.
    you need to make your money off your average snowfall. Rates in Wilmington,DE don't compare with rates in Snowfall, MN. For example while you may pay the same for equipment if you push 1/3 the snow your equipment costs per inch are way higher.

    Delaware plow prices

    I charge 125 an hour per truck. Both trucks have Western pro plus 8Ft plows.
    Salt spreading is 225 per ton.
