    Would you charge more if the flake is bigger than the average? What about the small gain style snow? Pushes like sh!t, but then again, the flake isn't very big. This pricing thing is hard.

    I would agree the small gain style snow is more pesky......therefore would charge 1.69x the cost of the larger flake style. payup

    And if your not counting the ones that land on the parked cars you are just leaving money on the table.

    Generally most charge by the storm. Some charge differently for heavy or light storms. Not much is done hourly, as least not resis. Find out what other guys in your area charge and go from there.
