    I know that i can go to the plow site, but I want to hear it from people here.

    Usually during the winter months we charge a per push price. Well, this year we want to charge a flat monthly rate. Basically for we have a constant pay coming in each month.

    Has anybody tried this and how does it work? Good results, bad results?

    If you take a seasonal contract try to get a multi year contract so you can average the price out, since you don't know what one winter will do to the next, but odds are you won't get three heavy winters in a row.

    You could also consider using retainers.
