Speed the Plow
Book a snow-removal service from your phone
The sky is 50 shades of gray. The air is colder than Betty Draper with a shotgun. And the heavens just dumped four feet of snow on your driveway.
Welcome to winter 2015.
This year, give in to the pleasures of technology by downloading Plowz, a new app that lets you book and pay for a snowplow with just a few taps.
Get started by setting up a profile and inputting your payment information. Then, the next time Mother Nature goes ape sh*t on your neighborhood, simply open the app and request a plow. Once a willing plowman is located, you will receive a quote and can book directly. By the end of the day (but usually within a few hours), your snow will be gone, your credit card charged and a photo of your clear driveway sent to your phone (you know, just in case you’re playing snowbird in Miami).
Prices vary greatly based on driveway length and location (Plowz is currently in 34 U.S. cities), but are typically comparable to the Mr. Plow you might call from the yellow pages--generally in the $25 to $50 range.
Bring it on, polar vortex. (No, we’re kidding! Don’t! DON’T!)
