    Was asked to price out a plowing job for a commercial property and I'm not a 100% on what the price should be. I measured it out at 12500 S.F. Figure i would plow the snow every 3 inches. no salt maybe 20 feet of sidewalk to shovel. Any ideas?

    Welcome to Plowsite!! The search feature in the upper right corner of the home page will be your best friend. Prices vary from place to place so it is really dependant on your location, what the average is, and what your costs are. Good luck

    You will receive varying replies to your question. Some may be polite and helpful, others not so much. Plowtoy is correct in saying it's difficult to hive you a price. Varying market prices are the main reason. Good rule of thumb is you can plow an acre an hour per truck. You have about a third of an acre plus walks. So maybe in and out in half hour? Use the search function, hours and hours of informative reading. And welcome :)

    Based on your specs:

    My pricing would be:

    $65 push
    $75 salt
    $25 shovel

    Like the others suggested, spend some hours reading this site...it's amazing how useful the information that you find on here really is.

    3" trigger seems like a good idea but when the owner actually sees 2.5" on the ground hes going to wish it was plowed.
