    Well I have this HD Store and they wanted me clean out there garden area
    This calls for a work order
    Only took 1.5 hrs + travel time of 30mins
    I did it thinking $200 or less with a Skid steer bucket
    12'' of wet snow
    They sent me a e-mail showing me what I was getting My Jaw drop and your jaw will drop to

    Well you are close, My self I been happy with $200 per hour

    HD employee ran shovel clean what I couldnt get.
    I never had to get out of the skid.

    Stacking was out the gate across the drive really close
    They had 2 gates open so I was always pushing snow both directions

    It should only took me 1 hr to clean it my phone wouldn't stop ringing every body in there dog was calling me that day.

    At least $100 per hour plus fuel. I wouldn't charge them for travel time. It's a extra on a nice large account. If they pay reasonably good for what you do on it then I wouldn't beat them up to bad on it.

    hardly any fuel burnt they paid me for my travel time
    I was out near by stacking snow at other jobs. I know takes 15min to road it there from the shop. I figure 30 min for travel time. They ask for my travel time.
    Bad thing last year I did one time I was there plowing the lot and anytime I go inside its extra money calls for work order.
    They chewed me out for doing it with out a work order. Its extra money for them as well.
    So this year I made sure I got a work order.
