No More Getting "Snowed In" With a Plowing Contract

Jiffy Launches On-Demand Snow-Removal for GTA Residents

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - November 23, 2015) - Winter is coming and Jiffy has announced that it's here to save Torontonians from signing a season-long contract with expensive, slow-to-react snow removal companies. With on-demand home services in 23 categories, Jiffy now allows Toronto residents to conveniently order at-home snow removal through its app or website, simply paying a one-time fee.

Every winter is a roll of the dice for those on a seasonal contract -- will you get your money's worth, or if it doesn't snow, will you spend over $700 for a single plow? The stakes are even higher this year, with weather experts predicting one of the warmest winters on record. While being snowed into your home isn't ideal, neither is paying an unreasonably high contract when the weather is so unpredictable.

"Plowing contracts truly are a no-win situation," said Paul Arlin, co-founder of Jiffy. "You pay through the nose and if it doesn't snow -- or if you don't hire a service company -- you end up getting stuck. Our mission with Jiffy is to make home maintenance as simple as possible, and adding this service is yet another way we're making people's lives easier."

Jiffy users can log onto the website or app and order on-demand snow removal if, and when, they need it. Once a request is accepted, your driveway will be plowed ASAP and covered by Jiffy's 100 per cent satisfaction guarantee. The cost is roughly $75-$100 per appointment and includes clearing and salting the driveway and walkways.

Jiffy's snow-plowing service is now available to customers across the Greater Toronto Area, in addition to its other home maintenance offerings. The app is currently available for iPhones and Android devices, or on the web. For a full list of services and more information, visit
