I have never bid for extra, so, no.

More than half of my house winterizations are private well supplied. The majority of those (nearly all) have submersible pumps that require no type of winterizing other than shutting the power supply to them off. If there is an external pump, blow it out and/or put a cup of antifreeze in it. Pressure tanks get blown out if you connect your air line pre tank, and any holding tanks (hardly ever see them) simply get emptied.

IMO, well pump wints are no more difficult or time consuming than wints on municipal supplied water houses.

since we are on wells
in the case of a shallow well pump you generally will have a plug on the bottom of the turbine houseing thats the drain for the pump , also on the top you should have another plug thats the prime remove em both and tape em on to the houseing

both types will have a or should have a check valve , generally brass with an arrow denoting flow you should remove the inbound side pipe prior to valve to allow the water to back flow backwards into the well the fastest way to disconnect it cut it and leave a 2 ended barb splice and some hose clamps zip tied to the pressure gauge and not only is it faster you run a lot less risk of breaking any parts wrenching on the line
