    I'm looking for some advice on a target snow plowing contract. They are asking me to sign a fix rate contract and I'm looking for some advice before I make a final decision. There is 1 acre of plowing and a lot of sidewalk. Though the sidewalk was hard to measure on find lot size I think I came up with a half acre of sidewalk if that makes sense, I could be wrong. What is a contract like this worth??? Should I do a fixed contract?

    Please research and then walk better yet run

    I've never seen a Target store with one acre lot.

    Exactly what OD said, research the name and a 1 acre lot doesnt seem right to me.

    Take that contract to your attorney, who does it protect, you or them?
    And who assumes all the responsibility? :salute:

    At a former employer we did a target that I believe was part of a three business site for us from (I think) Brickman. Target was weird because they had it set up so that we didnt have to shovel during store hours but after hours it was up to us. But we had to plow whenever it was snowing. It was a mess because this target had underground parking emergency exits everywhere thy never shoveled the walks they said they would.

    If you want to work a site and get paid $.50 on the dollar than go right ahead. Best way to make money here is to do something else
