Pierce Hill emailed customers several months ago to fill spots so not surprised they are booked in December - early fall is the time to start contacting snow blowing companies.

Good luck with your search

I would say that if they have enough customers that they don't want to go too far out of their way then they probably have a good business model.

Check and see who your neighbors are going with. If they also don't have anyone, and you can get a few to commit to Appleseed then you might have a better chance convincing them to make the trip to your street.

In the end they only have a certain amount of equipment and having to make a trip out of their way doesn't make sense for one customer. Think of it this way, each driveway probably takes less than a minute to clear. Having to spend even 5 minutes to get to your street for just one home when they could spend the same amount of time doing a number of driveways in an area where they already have customers wouldn't be wise for them.

I prefer snowblowing company that does not charge a flat rate. My neighbour paid $300 last year and i believe they only showed up 5 times to clean the driveway. He wasn't too pleased but it was not the company's faults. It is what it is.

I like to see the company offering a discount if there's not enough snow in a given year and vice versa if we got a ton of dumps then I don't mind paying extra.

I noticed that Buffalograss wasn't getting plowed. I contacted Mattamy about it and didn't get a response. I contacted the city and was told that it was the builder's responsibility. I tried Mattamy again and I contacted our councilor Jan Harder. Jan Harder's assistant followed up with the city and sent the plow out yesterday. She said that snow removal is the city's responsibility and we should be getting snow removal from now on.

I was worried that snow would freeze and become dangerous. Just a FYI and so far happy with our councilor.
