    When do you guys plow? Do you guys start when it get's about 5 inches? Do you charge by the inch? By the plowing? How do you all charge?

    I go out at 2-inches, and just charge "per plow".

    One mistake I made was not charging more for 5-10inches... I just figured I'd come back again. Doesn't always work out that way. Charge a certain amount up to 5", and anything over, I would charge more.

    1-2" commercial,any less,just salt/sand.3" residential.All commercials that are open during the storm get pre-treated to keep from packing snow to ice.

    Commercials 1 inch, residentials, when it stops.

    Ask the customer what they expect.
