    I have been reading through some of the posts on pricing. I have been associated with plowing for the last 35 years working for a family business. Most likely I will be taking over next year because of health reasons.
    He has been doing this for over 50 years as a plow contractor.
    Some of his small accounts he get paid a flat rate, but most of his commercial jobs he gets paid by the Inch. Which some would include walkways, and lots. These are not shopping mall lots, but from small business to med business lots
    Do any of you charge by the Inch???

    When it comes to pricing it comes to you market area not what's being done in the mid-west or out west.
