Snow removal

What is the going rate plowing/snow blowing 12" of snow? I have one company that wants to pay $20. Told them this was to low and said that's all they can pay. I told them need more than that. Just wondering what everyone else is getting or would want to do this

In 2011 we got $85 - 15% for sidewalks and additional $45 for driveway. I would guess it pays more today with inflation and all.

Your numbers don't add up here. $45 and $15 that adds up to $60. I am not expecting $60 but should be more than $20 (which is low to begin with) if there is 12" plus of snow

The numbers made perfect sense to me. $85 minus a 15% discount for the sidewalk. Another $45 for the driveway. Seems pretty straight forward to me.

for $20 I hop on my tractor with the snowblower and do a few local sidewalks/driveways. No vehicle and trailer required. I've been asked by many realtors to do snow for $65 per property, which I won't do, so maybe $65 net is the pay nowadays.

In 2012 (the last year I did snow removal), my blade wouldn't touch a drive for anything less than $65. This didn't include walks. I would hope it has increased since then.

Told them no. We got 17" here and they said $20 is all they can pay. They told me they have plenty of contractors in are who will take them over. So I said see ya. Lost a 170 job contract over it. They must be on crack to think someone will do it for $20. Sad thing is someone will do it

The guy you are working for is probably a Safeguard sub. He is paying you approximately 70% of what he gets ($28).
