Personally, I've found that starting out at 2", and then comming back every few inches works better than charging different amounts for additional accumulation. I charge anywhere from $15 for the smallest driveway on up to $130. And that PER PLOW.

Tips on plowing:

1. Take your time. The faster you go, the sooner you'll brake something.

2. Watch out for curbs. They will mess you up in a hurry.

3. Use those little poles with reflectors on them... or something like that. They help a LOT when theres a foot of snow on the ground.

4. Listen to the people in here. They know what they're talking about... or at least they do a good job of faking it. LOL
