    I've done residential drives and private roads for decades. Recently decided to bid on a few small commercial lots. I see a lot of the term " per push". Is this the same as per mobilization i.e. 1 pass through during business hours is one push, come back to clean up is another push, or does a push mean 1 charge for the entire storm regardless of how many times you have to go back? I hope it is the former, but some of the bids I've been losing make me wonder. I want to be sure I'm competitive, but $150 to plow the equivalent of 10 average driveways seems crazy.

    For me its per visit. Whether that's a full plow or just an open up.

    I've seen "push" defined many ways on this site. Personally I define per push as each time I come to the property and drop the plow. I have small banks and apartment building lots. I've seen others include one pass through and a cleanup later as a push and I would accommodate a customer who wanted that structure. Anything beyond that and I'd rather move to an event pricing structure and factor in multiple trips.

    Thanks for the replies. Definitely makes more sense if its for each visit.
