    Man it's hard to get some advice from anybody at times.....but I got all the exact measurements and the lot is 28,760 sq ft... I put in a bid at $220 with salting and shoveling by the doors and around the dumpsters in the rear (about 7 doors and 6 dumpsters) per push up to 6'. I don't know if I made an offer thats too high, or too low...please can somebody help so I know for future reference? How much would you guys charge?

    Somewhere between $1 and $1,000.

    I think you did just fine.

    It looks good man. Its tough to quote based on a drawing, I have to actually see it. I may have come in a little lower, but I think you did pretty well.

    Wayne, why is your snow package more expensive than the two cds if purchased seperately?
