FAQs

Q: Can you make sure my driveway is done by 6 am?

A: Unfortunately, the challenging thing with snow blowing is that snow comes at anytime of the day or night. Therefore, we can't guarantee that we will be at your house by 6 every day.  We have 3 basic times that we like to get our customers cleared out by. These times are dependent on what time it snows. These are not set times but just a goal.

  • Our first priority is to have the driveways cleared by 7 Am; this is possible when it snows evening until 2 am.
  • Secondly, 5 pm this is possible when it starts snowing at 4 am - late morning.
  • Our third goal time is 11 pm so that everyone can get his or her cars off the road at night. This is possible when it snows in the late morning - afternoon.
  • On "continual snowfalls" such as a large squall that has developed, we will start at a reasonable time (considering how much snow has already fallen and how much is still in the forecast) and run as much and as quickly as possible. We are however, subject to laws in this area. Our drivers are only allowed to legally run for 11 hours with 10 hours of break following. This law has been established for both customer and employee's protection and is something that we as a company cannot risk ignoring.
