    $2,800 for the season or per storm?

    If it's $2,800 per storm your going to be laughed at.

    Depending on what you get for snowfall for the year depends on that seasonal price, it could be too low, just right or too high.

    $150 sounds right for the whole lot plowing only, that's about 15 to 30 minutes to plow, 30 at the tops. 15 minutes if its clear.

    Your pita factor here is that shed right in the middle, if you get cars parked to either side during a storm and the lot is full, where you going to push the snow to?

    Another is your dealing with two seperate building owners, who's going to pay the bill? Are they going to split the cost?

    What do you do if one side doesn't pay, only plow out one side.

    I would make sure you get your money upfront for this one, at least half in November and the other half in Jan.

    Good luck

    I was thinking 1400$ per season for each side, they will both split i think/ Yes our policy is half on november 1st and the 2nd half is Jan 1st

    How much snow i would say 240-260 cm a year avg i think is 240cm.

    95.5 inches of snow roughly.

    If we got that much snow I would be charging around $4,500 for the year on a 3 inch trigger.
    On that you would be dropping your plow about 30 times.

    $150 x 30 = $4,500

    Then add in sidewalks and salting.

    I wouldn't go lower than $3,000
