    Hey all.

    I need to put a price together for a potential customer. He would like me to plow these 2 lots (pics attached) and salt and shovel. The trigger is 2 inches the rough square footage of the 1 lot is 35000, the other site is roughly 14000 sq/f. So roughly an acre combined.

    I need about 800# each time I go out for salting these sites.

    I was thinking

    $125.00 for the plowing
    $100.00 for salting
    $150.00 for shoveling
    $375.00 total

    let me know if i'm close or out to lunch. What would you charge seasonal.

    i think you are a little low, at least with the plow, i am seeing 2.5 - 3 hrs with your truck plowing, if i was charging for it, i would be something around $220+

    How much are you shoveling? Plowing does seem low ,was that the price for both?

    The plow price was for both combined. I was thinking an acre an hour, thx for correcting me on that and the shoveling is about 3000 sq/f between both sites.
