    Im not into the salt business yet, but just plowing, going by my lots, I would say easily $150-175.
    But what do I know, im new.

    I have a lot similar to that here only one of the parking lots is in the rear. Those parking spaces only take me 10 minutes to do and my min is $165.00, it only takes me 50 minutes to do on a 1-3

    I get $150 for a lot 2/3 that size with no access road and no sidewalks. Then I get $70 to salt on top of that. Hope that helps. But I am in NH also so pricing would be a little different.

    Easy push, everything pushes down to the left
    45 minutes to an hour to push it plus salt

    1" to 4"
    $125 to $175 to push it or so, plus salt (we don't use salt out here, only on walks, so I have no idea on salt)
    plus another $50 or so for the walkways. (hire one guy at $15/hour, he shoudl finish the walks by the time you finish the plowing)

    It's a church isn't it?
    That's even better, only on Sundays do you have to worry about being open early (leadership meetings, etc) which are the same days you don't have to worry about your commercials being open early.
    IT's a nice mix, be worth bidding on the low side to help fill in your schedule.

    I have to add to my post, that i don't do any of the walk ways(about 300 linear feet x 4 foot wide) they have a maintenance guy there to take care of that, looks like everybody is in the same ball park give or take for individual regions.
