You Shouldnt Close This Thread . . .


I know there were some old posts about guys who plow in the winter but I couldn't find them. I have plowed in the past but always for someone else, this year, I want to start doing it on my own.

My question is, how did you guys figure out the going rate in your area for plowing? I know my cost and blah blah blah, but I don't want to think its much more or less than it actually is. Did you guys ever get quotes from other plow companies in the area?

Thanks.

You gotta consider the soils that you are plowing, is it rocky? Heavy clay? these can be much tougher to......

Oh wait, your talking about snow

We cannot start picking and choosing which violations we will let go.

My suggestion, PM a few guys to see if they'll discuss this in private with you.

Sorry.
