    Do you seriously expect people on here to be able to price stations in Omaha, Ne by giving them addresses? How would we know what increment they want? Anyone who could price them is your competition, so why would they give you an honest answer?

    Are you really a company owner or a 13 year old playing at being grown up?

    Take it easy on the guy. He is probably listing the addresses so that some can view lot size on google maps or something of the sort. I live in omaha as well, and these addresses are all valid. Tank, check your messages, i left you one on your profile.

    As for the bids... Tank you must figure out square footage, how long it will take you to do each job, and if you can handle it all say if omaha were to get 12" snowfall in one drop like we've gotten in the past. I would honestly pick a select few of the bucky's, and go from there. Too many, some are huge, and VERY busy no matter the season. My .02

    BP gas stations you say? Don't they just dump fuel on the ground to melt the snow/ice?

    If you priced it for 1 place then that is high for my area. If you are spreading sand/salt you would be lucky to spread $15 worth. How long do you think it would take to plow?

    There like any gas station they are going to want it done dirt cheap. We do the Git n go’s here and have been doing them for 5 years now. I‘ve tried to raise my prices but then they *****. Your rates in Omaha are the same in Des Moines, you’ll be lucky to do them for $100 for per push & sdwks and $90 for sand /salt that place will not even take a ton to do it!! So they may ***** about that to, but hell that’s our minimum to run a sand truck out to a small place like that. You are way High on hauling $250 per hr is what I get to load & haul it away!! Not worth your headache trust me!! Especially when there are clowns doing **** for $55 an Hr. I just keep them around to keep a few subs busy!!

    some of the gas stations are diffrent sizes i wasnt to sure on loading out .. 250 sounds better..
    i think that one gas station would take 25-30 min but the big thing is the side walks becouse when the city plows plow the streets thay throw it on the sidewalks and that sh;t gets deep what do you guys think about that?
