    I am not a snow contractor actually a hardwood floor guy that has a plow on his truck. I did a few driveways for family and friends last year and now a friend of mine that does plow wants to give me a restaurant parking lot to do. Its a typical Dennys parking lot. He charged them 1800.00 for the season last year. Also only salted it 2 times. Is this number fair to charge again. I have a 82 boss V with a gmc 2500 diesel. Not looking for a breakdown just wanted to hear what you pro's think. Don't want to be doing this too cheaply. Thank you.

    You should spend a little time reading through the recent pricing/bid threads.

    Based on the title, are you saying you got lost in a restaurant parking lot?

    Or that you are lost in trying to bid it.

    I'm very confused.

    Mark: I guess your right looks like i'm lost. I meant lot. LOL Just trying to make sure I don't get in too deep with this lot. Am not interested in commercial work just thought I could pick up a buck or two being that my floor business tends to slow down in the winter months. TCLA I believe it was plowed 25-30 times last year. Iceyman have no commercial snow moving Ins. was thinking I could add it to my business coverage policy. need to get with my insurance agency. Thank for the help guys.

    LOL, for the love of cheesus Mark...:laughing:

    To faceman, is the lot worth $60-$70 per visit. Do you have to shovel? Are you going to spend anymore time than 30-40 minutes there?
