    Im from Ohio and need to put in a commercial snow removal bid for a lot that is 25,000 sq ft. I want the bid to include ice management. We want to the bid to be for the season and at a monthly charge. How would you make a bid on this commercial job?

    Hourly price times hours to complete the job for plowing. Salt price plus profit for salting. Seasonal take your average plowing and salting services multiplied by per service price and tada.
