For a drive that size and no walks, $20 no salt, $25 with salt. You're going to be there, what? 10-15 minutes? $75-$100 per hour is decent snow money around here!

Maybe I'm a tad high, first thought was $20 but with the walls and the fact it has a busy road just was accounting worst case scenario.

Busy road makes it worse too but if you're out early it won't be an issue. Shovel it over the wall or a small snowblower!

I quoted her $30 a push, and she wasn't very pleased. If anyone wants to chime in on what they would charge that would be great! Thanks guys, hope everyone has a profitable season!
Sounds normal to me I would be at $30 or $40 another $10 for salt. If you plow with the storm its possible you could be there during a busy time-most of my drives we do through the day so its clean when people get home. Also gotta remember those big storms I had one like that in the 2010 storm and had to snow blow it I charged $60 for it then.

I don't plow - snowblower, or shovel for me.

How would one plow a drive that small?
Drive in, drop plow, drag backwards?

Yes...back out onto the road, then wing the snow into the yard.

Typically, that's how it's handled

Yeah, where I live most drives are that size and 99% have walls on at least one side. I never see anyone plowing.

Getting the mowers cleaned up and ready for winter storage this week.
Time to stuff them in the back of the garage and get the snowblower out where it's accessible.
