    I searched plowsite, and tried here, but got frustrated not finding what i wanted to find.

    How much would you charge for a residential driveway to plow?
    I'm thinking contracts at 2 inches.

    I think it's very untapped, and I will get schools of clients, 4-5 in one place.

    Will be using a toro dingo to plow with, and ice melt will be offered as well with the plowing

    You should probably direct that question to plowsite. And you didn't give much info, a residential driveway could be 30 feet long or 300 feet long.

    Around here those would be about $15-$20, but that is with a truck and plow.

    In my parts we get $30 for a drive that size. Keep in mind though. We only get 1 maybe 2 snow storms a year so not many people have equipment so the demand stays high. If you get a lot of snow then the price will probably be lower since more people are prepared.

    Around here for 40ft I would get about 35-40 bucks. I need to get all customers on a contract for snow, just haven't gotten around to typing it up.

    Save the dingo for commercial sidewalks and get a plow on your truck. With the loading/unloading time, the rate that you'll remove snow and competive pricing, you'll be kicking your own ass.


    Fyi, I get $25 for a 2 car wide x 50ft driveway.
