    im in the process of writing up a new bid form that i will be handing out to my customers this season. i made the bid form universal so it can be used for residential and commercial accounts which includes the per push, salting , sidewalk cost, and driveway's.

    should i somewhere include a price for stacking or moving of the snow. obviously im not going to fire up a loader and bring it over to move the snow for free. should i make a spot in my bid form to put a price for stacking the snow after plowing is done and clean up is completed.

    if a store owner or manager comes to me and ask me to move the snow i would like to put a spot in the form to put X amount of $ per hour to move snow to their request. obviously it will be talked about where they prefer the snow to be piled in regular plowing session. i have the means to truck the snow out so should i put a price down for that as well for snow removal.

    im on the fence with this and any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You can put a hourly rate for the loader with a minimum. Also put a line for on site stacking and off site removal.

    I would just put a price for that per hour on there. It won't hurt, and then it will be set in stone.

    very good point.

    a loader will be used on 2 locations with 2 seperate loaders.

    im thinking about putting a line for the loaders used at sepate locations for stacking and a friends company will truck the snow offsite.
