    One of my potential customers called back tonight. After quoting him $40 per snow-fall for a driveway, he want's to know what I would charge per month.


    I've never priced like this before. I have absolutely no clue as to how much to charge him. Thanks in advance for the help.

    This late in the season ??? ..... stick to your guns..... do it the way you're comfortable with....

    Don't mind me, I'm ansy cause I'll be up and down all night looking out the window, checking the weather channel radar, finally driving up "on the hill" to see if the Lake Effect is kicking in as promised.

    AND, we only have one plow actually hung on a truck.....

    Well... I really want this account. It's a very easy driveway to do, and it's right in line with several others on my route.

    What to do....

    My advice take your average amount of snows, for exacample:

    10 storms on average, always add a few extra in your favorite, i picked 10 because the math was quick and easy in my head.

    10 storms times 40 dollars per storm = 400 dollars

    Lenght of Season: Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb, Mar. = 5 months

    400/5 (5 months of service) = 80 dollars

    so charge him 80 bucks month.
