    Hey all,
    Does anyone know how much to charge for snow plowing services?
    Should it be by the hour?
    How much?
    By the size of the lot?
    How much?

    Do you charge as much for salting as you do plowing?

    Sometimes I feel like I'm shorting myself.
    I have a 3/4 ton Ford F-250, and a Western snow plow.
    I've been doing this for 8 years, but I am a private job, and I don't really know what the "market price" is right now.
    Any responses are GREATLY appreciated.
    When you respond, if you could, please include how much you usually charge, and how you charge (by size, hours, etc.)
    Thanks so much!!

    We are charging by the hour. Right now were getting 105-110$/hr. Salting gets charged usually the same or by the pound.

    I agree with Dino. Sima is the ticket. I am a member and they have helped me with many aspects of my snow business. I owe them.
