Think of Us Like Uber, But for Residential Snow Removal…
And We Need You, a Provider.
A PROVIDER is someone who wants to use their shovel or snow blower and clean residential driveways for us. To be a Provider you will need a few things. The main things are a Car and a Shovel, or a Snow Blower and a way to move it around. You will also need a GPS, a phone capable of texting photos, a valid driver license and insurance on your vehicle. Lastly, you need to be physically fit to do this kind of work.

JustShovelMySnow.com by Kleen Seal, LLC
In the Spring, Summer and Fall Kleen Seal, LLC ( www.kleenseal.com ) is a residential driveway sealing company with over 17,000 current or past clients located in Middlesex, Union, and Somerset Counties NJ. In Winter, we become a full service snow removal company. JustShovelMySnow.com, our residential division, is where we need your help. When it snows, our phone and website pretty much bursts into flames and we cannot do all of the work… That is why we built this….
So Here is How it Works….
First, it starts by getting on our list of Providers. You do that by filling out the form on the bottom of this page. But remember, the key is being on our list BEFORE it snows…
Once you are registered as a Provider for us, we need to wait for the snow. This is the hardest part….
One more thing… If you only want to work some snow storms and not others, that is OK. We have set it up so you work only if you want to… Obviously that is when there’s snow, but, we will notify you that we are working and have driveways to clear. You simply check in if you want to do it, and ignore it if you do not.
How We Calculate the Payment for Each Job You Do….
Customers ask us for estimates. We then look their house up on Google earth and do a quick measurement with online tools. Then, generate a price for them based on 2 things – SQUARE FOOTAGE of their job and the approximate DEPTH OF SNOW. The following chart is a rough guide of how we will pay you. It is only a ROUGH GUIDE, everything is based on estimates and not us actually looking at the job in person with tape measures. Remember, the text we send you will always include the approximate square footage and what that job is currently paying.
Most of our jobs average between 1000 and 2000 square feet….
What Needs to be Done at Each House….
You will need to shovel the driveway and entrance from corner to corner and edge to edge. If there are any cars in the driveway, you will have to shovel around them. We do not want you to clean any cars off because we do not want to be blamed for any scratches or damage.
SIDEWALKS AND STEPS
You will also shovel the front walkway to the front doors. In addition, shovel any steps and porches to the front doors – edge to edge. Also, if there are any doors or steps touching the driveway, you will have to shovel those as well.
Some houses have city sidewalks along the street. These always need to be cleared. You will need to shovel all sidewalks along the roadway from property line to property line – edge to edge. Always be aware that corner properties may have a sidewalk along the side street, this will need to be done as well.
“Edge to edge” means not just a path, or one or two shovel widths wide, from one edge to the other.
After you have done this, you are done…. Go to the next one and repeat!
Ready, Let’s Go…
Once it is Snowing….
During the snowstorm, we will text you on the cell phone number that you provide us with an approximate start time for you to text in that you are ready for a driveway to do.
Once it Stops Snowing….
If you reply or replied that you are ready for a driveway, we will generate a job for you to do based on your location. We will always try to give you a location within 15 minutes of your location.
We will then text you a location (a house) and a dollar amount to do the job. It will look like this.
“123 Main St, Anytown— The job is about 1275 SF and is Paved Asphalt – Flat and not broken up— Please Shovel the driveway, sidewalks, and walks and steps to front door *** SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS>>>> Both Driveways *** NOT BEHIND ANY FENCES— Your Pay for this house is $36.00— Please text us a before picture when you arrive so we can check you in and and a picture when done — Please reply OK that you got this and how long till you think you will get there. THANK YOU, Debbie”
You then need to make a decision, accept or decline the job based on the information in the text.
Next, If you accept it, you will drive to the house, see it, and decide whether you will accept or decline after seeing the job.
If you accept it, you will do the job…. If you decline, you will be offered another job, if one is available.
Before you start shoveling, you will need to snap a “Before Picture” of the job and text it to us. This is so we can check you into the job, and we know you are there.
You will then shovel the driveway, sidewalks, and steps, as well as any special instructions in the text.
Next, you will need to snap an “After Picture” and text it to us. This is so we can check you out of that job in our computer system, and we can see that it is done.
Finally, you let us know whether you want another job or not.
We will text you another location and the process will repeat.
You choose how many jobs you want do. 1 or 20, it is up to you, or until we run out of jobs.
