    I saw an ad a few weeks ago in the paper for someone actually looking for a bid on plowing. I called and it turns out the guy owns two apartment buildings. I went to look at the job, and the first lot is only about 50x75, but lined with stonewalls all around.no room for snow.Also there is walks lining the area. Would you guys take on an account with nice stonewalls all around the lot? Seems like a liability..

    stone walls

    How tall are the walls?? Is there room to make a small pile at the back of the lot?? Can you push the snow from the back of the lot to the entrance & pile it in the ditch or grass?? If I was driving the truck myself I wouldn't be worried about the stone wall along the sides.

    Hey Buddy,

    The walls are around the edge of the lot on all four sides with one cutout for cars. The cars park and about 6 inches in front is the wall.No room at the back either....still deciding what to do.If I tell him I can only get within so many feet of them its one thing, but I think it looks like a bobcat may be needed to pile in the few areas available.
