In Cincinnati, Ohio I have a minium price for Residential drives, it is $50 to plow and 8.50 per 25lbs of salt. The drive is done before 8:00am and before 6:00p.m. So that is twice a day for a good storm. Total cost to that one customer for that days work is $124.02 for less than 30 minutes work. I did raise my prices 25% this season, because the steep increase in fuel & oil and the weak wrinter we had last year. I am getting my price for prompt and reliable service, Although I know that there are contractors out there charging much less.I hope I am not getting too expensive. We are not in Michigan and only get 3 snowfalls a year if we are lucky.
