I am fairly new to snow plowing. I live in southside Virginia so we do not get a great deal of snow but I have had the owner of two low income apt complexes call wanting me to work up a contract for them.

Site 1:
1,000 Ft of sidewalk
40 car lot (they only want the drive cleared, not parking spots)

Site 2:
2,200 ft of sidwalks
44 car lot (they only want the drive cleared, not parking spots)

The two complexes are only two blocks from each other.
I have a 35 hp kubota tractor with front end loader and grader.
If I get the two contracts, I will purchase a snow blower.

I already have a parking lot here in town with no sidewalks that I charge $65 per hour.

Can we see it on google maps?

You could start by seeing how long this will take you to complete then charge it by the amount of time it takes you.

Do you know how much it cost to run your business per hour/per minute? This would be a good starting point.

Do you have to remove snow from all the sidewalks on site 2? If so it could take some time with all the back tracking you'll have to do.

For just plowing both lots alone should be about an hour with wiggle room.
