    I do mainly all healthcare except one shopping mall. They are great accounts if priced right because they can not have any accumulation.One acocunt I charge for every time I plow, and this can really add up. Another I priced per storm, 1-3, 4-7, 8-11. I charge one price per storm and it covers repeat trips.of course you need to estimate how long it will take TWICE so yo dont lose. Try driving the whole lot as slow as possible and double it.That is a good basis to start at.hope this helps.let me know if u have any more ??s
