    Just looking to hear what some of you guys would charge here. Here's the details: 2" trigger, pushed x1 under 8", and as accordingly after. The front square area is about 30x30 and has a Goshen stone wall around it. There are sprinklers all around the main property up to the maple tree (bare tree on left of driveway before it winds to the pond). Plenty of space down by the barns to push snow. Only have to shovel a small walk, no blower because of the damage it does to the stone patio/ entry. I already have the account, established price, just curious as to what you all think, thanks!

    If you are really doing a 2" trigger, in 8" you would push it 4 times. Are you charging per push?

    how long is the driveway from the road to the barns? Would you like a price on one push? or amounts of snow?

    Sorry, let me clarify, 2" minimum with 6"-8" required for any additional. Front driveway/ parking area is just above 2400 sq/ft, bordered by a 2' stone wall. Just over 1/4 mile from road to the barns. The turn-around gets cleaned up, and they aren't overly worried about the back barn. Only shoveling is done in about 250 sq/feet to the side door of house/ patio area (snow blower is not an option, the flag-stone got chewed up in the past couple years.) I apologize for the late response, busy couple days with the first storms and the FT and PT jobs. Thanks in advance!

    Without knowing more…$500 at 4" initial push. $290 thereafter per 4". Throw in a visit for a clean-up to make em happy. Seems actually pretty easy. WHat did ya get? Any competition? Also heavily dependent on part of the Country and the customers financial resources.
