Tired of breaking your back shoveling snow? You came to the right place. We provide snow plowing services in Grand Rapids for both residential and commercial clients. We excel at what we do and want to add you to our snow plowing route. Let us show you what we can do! Below we have laid out all the information you need to know about our services. If you have anymore questions, just give us a call!
Snow Plowing Season Dates
Grand Rapids normally gets its snowfall between November and April. We will have your driveway and parking lot staked with orange visibility markers when we see the first sign of snowfall. This could be either in early November like in the winter of 2013-14 or it could be in mid-January like it was during the 2012-2013 winter.
Grand Rapids Season Snowfall
Grand Rapids averages around 72 inches of snow per year between November and April. Grand Rapids is ranked #7 in the United States in seasonal snowfall for cities that have a population over 50,000. Below is a chart of the total seasonal snowfall for the last 10 years. This will tell you why you need to sign up for our snow plowing services.
As you can see, some years Grand Rapids gets hammered with snow. Other years, we barely get any. Don’t take the chance. Hire us today!
Note: Our season contract covers you for 25 plows. Any more than that and we will charge a small fee to cover gas and other plowing expenses. However this has only happened twice the last 10 years.
What To Expect From Our Snow Removal Services
In order for your driveway to be plowed, we need the payment up front. This is not because we do not trust you, but because we have had instances throughout the years where clients would not pay us, and it hurt our company. We accept all major credit cards and checks. Once we have received your payment, we will assign you to one of our routes. Around mid-November, we will have our team come out and stake your driveway. The driver that will plow your driveway will be present and will make note of the shape of your driveway and any obstacles to avoid.
During Snow Season
Once the first snow comes its go-time. We will plow your driveway every time there is 1.5 inches of accumulation. Normally this will be between the hours of 12 am and 7 am to avoid any traffic and pedestrians as it is dangerous for them. We realize that Grand Rapids receives many snow storms during the winter. During a snowstorm we will be on call 24/7 to take care of any needs you have. If we get over 4 inches of snow in a short period of time, we will be plowing during the day and will continue to plow with the storm to keep your driveway clear.
After Snow Season
The snow plowing season ends on April 1. We will now come and pick up the snow stakes from your property, and also replace any damaged sod or other objects your driver may have hit. If there is a chance of more snow, we will leave your snow stakes on your property until the chance of snow is gone.

Other Snow Removal Services offered
We do more than just snow plowing! Check out some of our other winter services:
Disclaimer: Snow Plowing does not provide a slip-free surface. Therefore you may want to hire us for salting as well. Our salt causes the water/snow to have a lower freezing point which helps melt the ice. We provide salting services to both residential driveways and commercial parking lots. Contact us for a quote!
If we are already plowing your driveway, why not let us shovel your walks as well? Our plow trucks also will only be able to get within 3 feet of your garage door. If you hire us for shoveling we will clear that snow as well, which will require you to do absolutely no work at all!
