What is the average cost to shovel a driveway?
Most residential driveways are $60 per visit. Front public sidewalks are typically $10 (corner house, or larger lots will cost more). Sidewalks From driveway to front door are typically only $10. ($60 minimum charge per visit / 1-4" snow fall)
What happens if the snow storm last all day long?
If a snow storm is long lasting or extremely heavy we may need to clear your property more than one time during a given storm, resulting in additional plowing charge (Quoted prices are for the typical 1-4" snow fall).
What happens during a Blizzard?
As soon as the main roads are drivable we will be able to service your property. Driveways are the priority, all sidewalks will be cleaned after the storm is over. This process will likely take multiple days to complete. We will make sure the entrance to your driveway is kept clean throughout the blizzard. Your price quoted for snow services are for the typical 1”-4” of accumulation. For example, if we receive 20” of snow fall, your cost could be up to five (5) times your regular rate.
When do you service my property?
We will make our best effort to time our services with the end of a storm. However, we try to clear your driveway and/or sidewalks prior to 6:00 am and/or 6:00 pm for your convenience.
Why do we start snow management services at 1”
Many snow storms are less than 2”. If we receive multiple snow falls of less than two inches you will have excess snow on driveway and sidewalks that will get packed down and made very slippery.
Can you apply salt to my driveway and/or sidewalks?
Yes we carry Calcium Chloride on all of our plow trucks. Calcium Chloride is the best de-icing product we have found to help avoid damage to lawns,shrubs,driveways, sidewalks, and buildings. The minimum charge is $45 and typically covers driveway and all sidewalks. ($45 charge is based on us being on site doing snow removal)
Can you de-ice my property without shoveling?
The minimum charge for applying Calcium Chloride without snow plowing or shoveling is $75
