    ok ive got a townhome association in need of a bid for snow removal. What it is is 16 driveways all about 20'x35' 16 walkways ranging from 10'-20' and about a quarter mile long s shaped service road. no salting or sanding and in the past they have never had to haul snow out. I would be using a 3/4 ton with a 8' blade single stage thrower and shovel. what i was thinking is doing a yearly contract.
    i was figuring 20 per drive and 100 for the road so 20x16=320+100 for the road = 420 per push add on 60 for the walks and were at 500. average that at 2x per month = 1000 per month x 5 months (nov-mar) and were at 5000 for the season plus maybe a clause for extreme blizzards what do you guys think im new at the plowing thing so i could be way off

    That seems like a nice account. I think the price seems to be good. Are you doing this yourself or will you have at least a side walk crew? No salting or sanding where? on the sidewalk, or driveways or both? I would put something in your contract that will protect yourself if your not responsible for ice treatment. Also i would go in to April with the contract. Some guys go to April, these days you could still get snow in April. Even like to the second week, just to protect your self. Or add there will be a per trip charge if it snows past March. Hope some of this helps. Rich
