you wouldnt have to switch your clients. You may have to wait till after your finished subbing depending on the agreement you have with them. In my state your required to do commercial accounts before residential. So the state doesnt lose tax money. I let all my customers know this in advance and has never been a problem. Most prefer you come after most the snow has fallen others want you there whenever they go to work. So you win some you lose some.
The majority of snow removal companies will have a set price to pay you. A few will pay based on your equipment, mainly blade size, if you have a sander, etc.
