Snow Plowing

Did anyone receive any orders for snow removal and this would be my first year doing snow plowing for any national. Just wondering because I thought that they come just like recuts.

Generally they come as a work order, not a routine!

3" or more was the standard, but had many a snow fall with 6" in my drive way and not a work order for 2-3 days. Well then it was iced over and I was breaking stuff on the truck or blowers!

No thanks for piss ant pay

I hear ya I just bought a 1995 dodge ram 1500 beater with a plow and I was contiplating on selling it because the insurance for commercial plowing is about 3,000 and up.

We do snow removals, but no plowing

Most loan orders only require a parking spot and a path, or sidewalk clearing for in town. I do most of mine with a good old plow shovel, or a blower. in most cases by the time I would unload and start a blower, I can have most of them done with the shovel. For those iced over ones, or slush, I just take the before pictures, throw on a pile of salt(salt I have saved from trash-outs)then run my route back, clean-up what's left, and take the after pictures. 30-40 routines can add-up, and if you use your head, there is money to be made.

At NFR we are doing them just like recuts, this season. You get an order at the beginning of the season and it remains open until 3/31/14. Our pricing goes by industry regulations for Fannie, Freddie, HUD and VA...so for HUD you plow 3 or more inches and it pays $50 (less your agreed upon discount) for a 20 x 30 drive as well as clearing a walkway to allow access to the property. Anything more that that and it is a bid after the fact situation.
