Snow removal

How much should we be getting for clearing driveways during these 2-3 foot snow storms?

The driveways have ranged from 400 to 1200 sf. I use snowblowers and hand spread salt (2 guys). The 2 Companies I work for are FNMA rates (with a 20 percent discount). They just don't really specify on FNMA sites what the over allowances are.

Wouldn't you determine what is within the allowable and what is over the allowable for your company?

For me, 400-1200 sq ft of snow removal with 2 men & 2 snowblowers then ice melt, pictures and results submission is all getting billed as over the allowable. That same job with a truck plow that spends less than 5 minutes on site & my feet dont leave the truck might get billed as within the allowable. Add ice melt & it goes over for sure.

Iíve already told you more than I know.

It's a lot easier to get more money before it's done. Additionally, keep in mind you don't have to actually call from site, and stop production. Just call before you send the pictures. The only advantage you have over these companies is the fact that you are there, use it to it's limits.
