Snow Removal


Those who do snow removal in the winter and have flat rate seasonal snow contracts what type of service cap do you implement. i.e. what is your snow accumulation cap (3,4,5 feet) before you turn into the time and material rates. Also, do you cap for the whole season or do you have a per snow event cap?

Thank you for answers

Re: Snow Removal


I hope you don't plan on doing just flat rate seasonal contracts. In general, you want to split half your contracts at a season rate that covers your costs. The other half would be per inch or hourly rate to make your profits

Welcome to CT. Where are you located turfgirl? Are you inquiring about commercial or residential snow removal?

Re: Snow Removal


It's a seasonal contract? It shouldn't have a cap on plowing, that's the whole selling point of a seasonal. Price it right and you'll be ok. Salt is a different story. I have never included salting as part of a seasonal contract though.
