Snow Removal Made-Easy


Shoveling snow is a common cause of back pain. While using simple and appropriate snow-shoveling techniques will go a long way in preventing unnecessary pain and injury, asking for help is the better way to go. It’s actually easier than you think. Just like ordering a ride on Uber, you can now request a snow clearing online to receive a quick quote. Then it’s up to you to confirm or reject the price, and if accepted, the job is posted to a nearby contractor.

Most companies offer a range of services from a one-time snow removal job to automated services that will automatically come and clear snow after accumulation of 5 centimetres or more. Customers ordering snow shoveling services also have the option of adding on front door walkway, stairs and front landing, side door walkway, and city sidewalk snow removal. The completed work is then confirmed with a quick post-removal photo!

What is the difference between snow plowing and snow removal?

Knowing the correct lingo is the first step to successful use. Snow removal and snow plowing are often confused. It’s easy to use them interchangeably, but there is a distinct difference. Snow removal will actually remove the snow from your driveway, walkway and sidewalk. Whereas a plow just moves it around to clear a space.

Of course, each snow removal app services a specific geographical territory. A quick search online will find the best app for your area, like the Eden Snow Removal App, which services select cities in Ontario, and MowSnowPro which helps those in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. There’s lots of apps out there, like Touchplow, Shovler and Snowjob. Do a little research and find the one that suits your needs.
