I think my price is too high.

    I'm putting a bid in for snow removal this week. Its a complex that I already have the contract for the lawn maintenance. The removal is for all the sidewalks surrounding the lawn areas...about 10,000sqft of walkway. I price alittle different I think. I might be wrong but let me know if this sounds crazy to you:
    3"-6"-- .40per sqft
    7"-12"-- .60per sqft
    per inch over 12"-- .10per sqft

    I figured out this system over time in my area. Most of my removals are homes that have about 500sqft of surface to be removed (driveway, sidewalk, steps) and just about everyone gets around $200 for snowfall of
    3"-6"....$300 for 7"-12".

    Am I nuts for asking :
    3"-6"-- $4000
    7"-12"-- $6000
    per inch over 12"-- $1000

    So a 15" storm would cost them $9000.
