    Is it more lucrative or easier to just do a full season contract at one price vs having them sign with u and to pay u each time it snows above a certain amount? It seems that a one time price for the season ( possibly with a few stipulations to protect u) would be easier. WIthout that kind of contract u would have to wait for someone to call u and then go from one side of town to the other chasing calls. Or u could just have a one time price/contract, know your route and do em in the most timely fashion; saving gas, time, and trouble.

    You want a mix of :"seasonals" and "per push". You can get an efficient route with both; just have them all on the same trigger. The monkey wrench is going to be getting them done when they want done. You may have to start earlier or take a couple out of sequence, but with some planning you can usually keep it to a straight route. Per Push is usually billed monthly, although some do bill after each storm.
