I am curious to those that provide snow removal, what percentage of your annual gross does snow removal/salting represent?

lucky man. Next year, mine might only be around 5%...or less.

The last two years I have slowly been preparing myself, and my customers for getting out of snow removal. This year was supposed to be my last year and I was going to take it easy, but with 21 customers right now (both commerical and residential), it's hard to take it easy. I probably will do 5 places next year, perhaps 7. I have one gentlemen that is paid up until 2010 though. I may just sub it out.

I will actually try to hire a sub for next year...I think this might be my last year doing the plowing. I will have a clause in my sub-contract, that the subs will repair any damage made to the property, or I will deduct it from their final pay...although this is my best year plowing so far!
