    Well...if we ever go anything like that here again....my only remaining contract says lot will be cleared after two inches has accumulated...no max set for this lot, so they would pay everytime I plowed it. Some contracts that give prices per inch I've seen go like this example: (all inch increments are just for example) let's say 2" trigger
    2-4: $100.00
    4-8: $150.00
    8-12: $200.00
    12+: $200.00 plus $25.00 per inch. Meaning if you plow 14" it's $250.00, 15" $275.00, you get the idea. That is for snow measured on lot before plowing service starts, not total storm accumulation, people sometimes like to argue that "Well, I only had 8 inches in my driveway at home, there's no way there was 13 on my lot:rolleyes: "

    All of our accounts are a set price but we plow more then once to keep them clean and the customer is chaged for each plowing.
