    I was wondering how you guys operate with residential snow removal prices.. I was thinking for the following year one of 2 things.. I would 1. Charge a one time fee in the beginning of the year.. lets say 300.00 This 300.00 would include snow removal for anything over an inch. The only gamble with this would be that if it snows a storm a week.. im screwed.. Number 2 would be to charge by the minute. Lets say a dollar a minute. I have a snowblower that i use, so its not much work doing snow removal (except getting up at 3 in the morning). The only time i actually begin to break a sweat while doing snow is when i do the walkway (if the blower cant get to it) and the stairs.. everything else the blower takes care of. So what do you guys think? 1- being i charge a one time fee? 2 charge by the minute? or 3- charge by the inch? i forgot to mension my inch prices: 2-5 inches=25.00 (takes about 10 minutes tops), 6-11 inches 40.00 (takes about 20 minutes) And anything over 12'' is 50.00 (takes about 30-35 minutes. Salting will of course cost extra.. So.. what do you think? 1?2?3? - Peter

    It's the same type of forum as here, and a lot of the lawnsite members are over there too. Thanks,
