    thanks guys. I thought I was being low balled. I was making that about 7 years ago so I thought it was low. Have prices dropped that much over the years?

    What's it cost you per hour?

    What should I charge to plow That's the million dollar question. Do you know what it costs you to run your truck and plow per hour based on your company's overhead and expenses? Or, are you letting your clients and competition price your work? What the market will bear is important, but knowing your own costs per hour should be number one. Determine that first, then go get your jobs based on what you know you must have per hour as a sub. Don't give your service away.

    As many veterans on this site will tell you, pricing has gone backwards due to the lack of knowledge about bidding. Good luck.
