    I have done a search and I think that I am getting this proposal about right. I am new to plowing, and one of my commercial proposals wants a snow proposal along with the lawncare.

    The lot is approx 44,000sqft (just a little over an acre). It is pretty much completely open with little to no obstacles, and shaped almost like a perfect rectangle.

    I am using a 3" trigger and here is how I priced it:

    3-6: $125 per push

    6-12: $175 per push

    12 +: $100 per hour

    Salt/Sand: I estimated that I would probably need 8 10 lbs per 1k with a price variation (depending on salt to sand ratio) $350 - $750 per application. Am I way off or am I about right? I need to submit this proposal by next week, so your advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help.
