    I have an opportunity to start plowing oil site access roads so I was wondering if anyone has experience plowing private roads. I'm not even sure what a good price range is for roads. Any insight or advice would be appreciated!

    Private roads are just like a parking lot, only not as wide.

    Private roads are just like a driveway, only longer.

    Drive in, get yourself turned around and drive out. Next.

    This one is gravel, drop the plow, pick it up a few inches and repeat what you did before. Next.

    then for price, take your rate x time you think it will take to plow = price, just remember to include things like travel time in bad weather, traffic, deep snow ect. into consideration when you calculating times.
