I want to shovel snow for money. How much is a fair price to ask for shoveling and salting a driveway? 15, 10, 20? How many good ol american dollars would you pay?
Are you a grown ass man planning to shovel snow for people?
What the hell is wrong with you man. If you're over 18, get a job. If you're not, get off 4chan.
I'd give you like 5 bucks and then sue you for killing my lawn.
your response made me smile. depends on how long the driveways are and what the going rate is man. $20 for 10 feet of sidewalk and 3 steps, probably not worth it. $20 for a 50 foot 4 car width driveway plus stairs and a deck? a bargain. $15 would be a fair general price though if I had to just throw a figure out there.
I was also considering this. Seems like a decent idea. Good ol' honest work.
Tbh I'd go with $20 then if they decline say "How about $10-15?" Or "How much would you pay for excellent and quick work which saves you unnecessary time?".
nigga, i shovel driveways on my days off, charging an average of $25, and i get finish 20 driveways in about 10 hours.
>and i dont pay tax on that shit.
well i guess if you want to split hairs...
regardless, only had to spend $100 on the thing (used) and instead of 1-2 hours breaking my back, i can get a 50 ft driveway + sidewalk cleared in about 20 minutes.
still need the shovel for areas around cars, or other areas the plough cant/shouldn't go fwiw.
and as you said earlier, highball them then if they decline drop the price.
well, there is a bit of prep work involved.
i put flyers in mailboxes around my neighborhood in Oct to plant the seed (and to set up accounts for those truly interested that actually call)
I DO NOT "cold call" by knocking on random doors. after each snow, i go around again putting flyers in doors/mailboxes to remind people.
>i fucking DESPISE random faggots coming up to my door soliciting shit, so in no way would i submit my neighbors to such an annoyance)
here is another protip.
>go to trailer parks and pitch to the landlord about how mother-fucking heavy snow is, and that to protect their investment, shoveling the roofs of those aluminum boxes is the only way to prevent cave-ins.
works nearly every time, and you just acquired 30+ more accounts.
it basically operates and handles the same as a rototiller.
but im guessing you have never done any gardening type work in your life...
in your case, i'd go to home depot first and rent one to become acquainted.
I don't have a car. So I'd probably need to go around to neighbors houses and offer the shit.
I'll try it, if it yields few fruits I'll put up signs, ill do it anyway tho.
That would be correct, I have not done any.
I am willing to learn and I'm stubborn to a fault sometimes. I've literally raked leaves with smelly ass fucking crabapples for 3 hours before for $10. Why? Because it had to be done and I got started and needed to get it to the end. (
Only mid-way through did I realize $10 might be a little too cheap)
so not only can you not into CBA, but you cant even do a basic google search.
