    Hoping to get some advice on plowing apt building lot. I started this last winter my problem is cars. Some days its almost impossible with no room to move or pile snow. Can only plow at night as it is also a buisness lot with even more cars during day.

    U do what you can,and ask the owner to get the tenants to remove their cars once you're there

    We move out all the snow by hand in between all the cars. Then use a Skid Steer for the open stalls. Then the Plow for the road. If it's a really tight lot we bring in another skid.

    I had the same problem at one of my lots (24hr lot) so I talked with the owner and made a storm parking spot, it works out great.

    My first experience was with apartments this week.

    I picked up 3 large complexes (for this area) for the 11/12 winter and 12 summer.
    All three expect the driving lanes to be cleared. If enough cars are moved to allow a plow truck to get in and out they would like, but not required to plow that area.
