    Is there a formula you guys use to bid an account monthly instead of per plow? I figured I'd look thru my books for the last several years and figure out the average number of plows per month and bid it at that plus 1.

    Input appreciated

    Average number and then some. You are taking the risk, therefore you must have some reward on the flipside (higher total annual price).

    It's not unusual to make the payment terms monthly (6 equal payments), but I've never run across bidding snow on a monthly basis.
