that being said, think about it. That one inch of snowfall adds up over the width of the driveway. So whether it's a plow, snow blower or shovel, by the time you get across a 20 foot driveway, how many inches is it? The one inch? or a couple feet?
Not only the depth, but wet snow? or dry powder? Is sleet mixed in? These are all factors in a well rounded bid and price. That's not even counting overhead and other costs and expenses.
Not every customer wanted snow removal this past snowfall. I did 10 driveways plus 3 i picked up from their neighbors that caught me while I was clearing my clients. 13 driveways, my invoices were $800. Not as much as a guy with a plow and commercial accounts, but not bad for someone not focusing on the whole market and only on his own clients.
