    1 1/2 to 2hrs plowing, Half ton salt depending on storm I would not put a limit on it, the reason so high on hrs is if your having to plow this during their operating hrs ur goin gto have to deal with traffic and it's a b&^&, by the way those roads look they can get busy( me we do 13 gas stations about that size and it takes my two guys I have split up on them 1-2 hrs to get each store dn (only one truck at store for those that can't read), only takes them 1hr when there closed

    And I do'nt know their thoughts on you stack snow up against the rear of the building like that,to me personally that's a NO NO, I would back drag it out an push it to the way right of the picture that hole stretch from far left as I could go to the right of picture would be the push to that side of the picture to me, but there may be something I'm missing also.

    For stuff like that, and the larger shoping centers / stores we do

    Charge them a flat rate when there closed 9p-7a and a hourly form 7a-9p. one way i have seen it done. Another way is to do a flat rate and price it high.
