    Hey guys. I have been residential w/exception of one small hair salon. Have oppertunity to do 3 vet hospitols with small frt/back lots on each.20k sq. ft I think push rates will be around 2@65$ and one larger @80.00 But they will also need salting. I have a line on a swing away western t/g spreader. But the salting part of the bid has me worried. If you just come to salt - maybe 4 bags 80# - per visit . then what if you plow and feel salt should go down,add the two plow + salt amount ? Salt quote -figure my time to drive the route + salt and x 75$ an hr ?? would take me about 1-1.5 to do the 3 salting I think .
    1" trigger . Just got the oppertunity and I here they have bids and are making a decition This week ! yikes ... I do there summer property mowing and gardening already . Great customers - oppertunity to do more for them ! thanks !!
