• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

I'm in my first year plowing (though at 46 I've been around some and sure don't feel like a spring chicken) and friends that don't plow always ask if I have a minumum price for a small commercial lot. I try to be around $50.00 to make firing up the rig worthwhile. Opinions please?
 
We have a minimum price for residentials of $30 which keeps my one ton away from the drives I don't want. A minimum price for commercials is kind of like one size fits all underwear. With each lot being different and presenting different obstacles you'll have a hard time sticking to prices or making money. I have people ask that same question about " Well how much do you get to plow?" and I usually reply that we get XXX amount per hour with xxx amount min time charge all dependent on location and difficulty. This probably didn't help you much, but like all service jobs, be very mindful how you bid.

We have a $40.00 dollar commercial minimum for plowing only. A $50.00 minimum for plow & salt. Shoveling is extra for new accounts some of my old ones it is included in the $50.00.Our two current 40.00 lots take 10 to 15 minutes on 2" to 3" snow.
