Snow Plowing and Billing Policies
Please review and sign below before returning


1. Plowing season: The season, as described by this contract, covers the period between 22 November and 1 April . Plow-able snowstorms out side of this time period will be handled only on an “on specific request” basis, subject to all normal terms of this agreement. Please call if you need plowing services that are outside the terms of this contract.

2. Late Season Exclusion: Late season storms of 6" or less occurring between 15 March and 1 April will only be plowed by specific request, subject to all terms of this document, because of the increased potential for damage to property from soft ground typical this late season. Storms lager than 6" will be plowed automatically unless otherwise indicated.

3. Billing and Payment Terms: Billing occurs on the last day of the month for that month’s services or by the second storm whichever may come first. Payment is required by the 10th of the month to prevent application of late charges and to avoid possible suspension of plowing service. One notice of pending suspensions will be given in all cases.

4. General Snowplowing Terms: The Quoted price covers the clearing of your driveway once following the completion of accumulation. Additional charges will apply for additional clearings, subject to the terms and conditions herein.

5. Breakouts and Partial Clearings: Morning “breakout” and partial clearings, when required, will be billed at 50% of the quoted per storm rate. Breakouts will occur automatically as necessary, dictated by the amount of accumulation and the timing of the snowstorm, unless specifically excluded. Breakouts are generally deemed necessary when more than 3" of snowfall has accumulated by 4:00 am, generally with continuing snowfall. Other cases will be handled as deemed necessary by the contractor; this may include partial clearings in the mid-to late afternoon in cases where sufficient snowfall has fallen during the workday to make accessing driveways difficult upon returning from work. You may request additional clearings or breakouts at any time, to be billed according to the terms and conditions herein. If you do not wish to be included in the automatic breakout service, please initial in the space below. Doing so means that plowing will occur only following the end of accumulating precipitation, unless circumstances dictate additional clearings as provided for elsewhere in these terms.

I do not wish to receive automatic morning breakouts as described above. _______

6. Conditions for plow-able storms: Unless otherwise indicated, plowing will occur automatically following any storm with accumulations 3 “to 4" or greater, except as excluded in Section 2 above. The contractor is responsible for determining snowfall amounts. Storms with substantial accumulations may require additional plowing in order for the contractor to ensure the ability to keep the drive way clear; these conditions are described below in point 7.

7. Larger Storms, Multiple Visits, and Blizzards: Storms with an accumulation of 10"or more will be billed at 1-1/2 times the quoted rate, regardless of whether one or two plowing visits are required. Additional charges, the total charge not to exceed 2-1/2 times the quoted price, may occur if multiple visits are required in the event of a major snow event of blizzard proportions. Snowfall amounts may vary from location to location, and the observations of the contractor are the sole criteria used in determining total accumulation. Total charges for any given storm will be determined solely by the contractor, subject to the basic terms above, and may or may not correspond directly to the number of plowing visits required for the given storm.

I have read and agree with the above terms and conditions. I agree that my per-storm price, used in all pricing and billing calculations as described above, is $_________
