    I checked through the search results but couldn't get any good info on the topic. I am new to plowing and a customer wants me to figure a seasonal price to plow there driveway. I'm in NH and I'm gonna base it off of 12-15 events and will plow approx every 4 inches. I'm going to charge $25 per push but my question is when figuring out a seasonal price how many times do you figure you will push per storm. I feel like it should be twice per storm but I feel like most people would assume one push per storm. How do you figure your seasonal prices? Thanks

    events times price = cost

    I base it on an average of how many times I have went out the last 5 years. I plowed 20 times, then 20 x $$ = cost.

    Go with 15 and see how it goes. Then next year adjust.
