    680 US HIGHWAY 130 Trenton NJ

    Its a huge main branch post office.

    What would your seasonal rate be? We'd put at least a minimum of one truck and one skid steer or backhoe/front end loader here for the season.

    NJ in last 3 years got

    09/2010 70"~
    2010-2011 45" ~
    2011-2012 blah, 3" or something

    Seasonal pricing only,

    How would you quote a seasonal price with such a drastic difference in snow totals? Just curious.

    This is a regional hub,not a branch so mail needs to get out no matter what. So you bid it for the worst and they want seasonal price.Not sure about the months he has listed.

    Just got done bidding a town home complex the same way an I did it like this seasonal up to 8 events of 12 inches or less events is $$$$$$ if its more then 12 inches it gets charged as 2 events off the 8 allowed per year. An event is anything more then 2 inches. less then 2 inches is up to the property manger to make the call, an salt is billed per app. If we get less then 5 events they got 10% back payment is due Dec1 Jan1 Feb!1and March1 and its a 3 year contract. Or price was based on what it would cost us to have the machines 3 skids an 2 pick ups run for 8 6" events this way if we get 5 events we make bank if we get no snow we make bank if we get the full 8 events we break even on this account but our other hourly and perpush accounts would make the bank. im not saying this is the right way but it does work for us and we make money no matter how much or little snow we get.

    I would assume that a main regional hub would be zero tolerance. Right? One truck and one machine is not enough to so that lot as efficiently as they may want. At least 2 machines. And why the heck is it Jan-June?

    I think he is saying you get paid in Jan-June. So you are waiting 60 days for you money.

    That is a complicated setup.
