    Fine; In a area with snow similar to milwaukee (55") and the building to be about mid sized for a walmart, it's in the range of $40-50,000. Now, this is not the exact figure, but I hope it helps answer your question.

    They do have a tremendous amount of bargaining power, and enough time to search for the lowest bidder I'm sure. BTW Walmart is not the only store with a big parking lot you know.. Around here the salting bill is often as high as the plowing bill for large commercials like that

    Salting and sidewalk crews make the money. Ok, at least more than what you make plowing.

    Chris- what's your 'big' account? I know about your condos, but what about commercial/industrial lots? Curious.

    I know guys hate them, but the condo's as a per unit price bill way ahead of the commercial properties. (ok, not every one) All I can tell you Joe, I have just over a dozen commercial/institutional/retail in a tight area around the Falls. Back in December we moved snow for a few other guys in the area as well. Example: M&I bank, Kessler Diamonds, Whittlans, Dallas condos. Not as many people feel like spending the money on moving and stacking snow this year.

    Here's the thing...

    They will pay what the lowest contractor bids it at.

    So weather that is good or bad is up to all of the guys bidding them.
