    Snow Removal Billing Form

    We start plowing when the snow accumulation is over two inches and we add each time we visit to the seasonal contract. In the seasonal contract we bill you for twelve snows. You may make a payment every month or make a one time payment for the whole year. We bill you for five months from November to March. If at any time the season provides more then twelve snowfalls of over two inches then we will bill you by a per push price at then end of the month. If you have any additional questions please give us a call. 248-670-3681.Thank you.

    Hi Adam, I'll take a crack at helping you out. Now since your fifteen you'll be using snow blowers correct?
    1. Re-title your contract to reflect what you do and for what year. It helps those keeping records for what year some contract was and for what. I would try something like, "Adam's SnowBlowing Services, 2005/2006"
    2. Snowblowing operations begin with an average minimum snow accumulation of 2". Each visit to the property counts as one billable trip.
    3. Your choice of billing: Monthly or Seasonal. Monthly billing will be invoiced the first week of the following month with 7 day terms. Seasonal billing is for 12 pre-paid, non-refundable trips due prior to any snowblowing. At such time that 12 trips have accumulated, billing will switch to monthly.

    15 or 50

    15 or 50... it's great to see you didn't ignore him or blow him out of the water.

    When we get old and can't see striaght enough to push, he will be our replacement. Isn't it nice to know that he received at least a little guidance from experience as he started. He amy even become a Plowsite Vetern and continue the experience and knowledge to the next 15 year old 20 years from now.

    Thanks Grn Mtn.

    I am a little confused. Do you offer a seasonal price or are you just guaranted twelve visits a year.

    good point

    well that is a good point, by calling the prepaid catagory seasonal some people may assume it is a one shot deal. you could either make it a real seaonal price by finding out what the high end average for your area is and charge that --say unlimited at $250, or monthly at $15 p/trip.

    Oh, Is 2" the norm in your area for residential?, usually 2" is a trigger for commercial.

    You could also find out what the avg. yearly snowfall is in your area, plug in your trigger and use that as a seasonal price.
