Snow Removal pricing help needed

    Here are the specifics: Moving snow with my F550 which I am loading with my bobcat S150.
    The snow is being transported about 7 miles.
    Will probably need to make 6-8 trips.
    I figure it will take me 15 mins to load and 30 mins in travel and dumping time per round trip.

    So looking at probably 4.5 - 6 hours

    I want to be fair considering I am only using a 550 and someone with a triaxle or trailer dump could do it in 1-2 loads. This is also a very good account so again I want to be fair butnot sell myself short.

    Any ideas on what to charge?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the advice.
    I ended up moving the snow around their lot as opposed to hauling it out.
    I quoted close to what you said and they decided to not have it hauled away which was fine as we ended up spending 4 hours moving the snow around.

    Thanks again
