Driveway Plowing Cost

The cost of plowing your residential driveway will depend upon a number of factors; however, on average, the cost of residential driveway plowing is $42.70 per visit for a typical driveway (Range: $37.63 - $47.77). Take a look at our Snow Removal Cost Report which will provide you some estimated prices in your local area.

Here are some items that will factor into the cost of your project:

1. Length and width of your driveway. The contractor will likely base their fee on the amount of time it will take to accomplish the job. The more surface area to plow, the higher the fee.

2. Do you need the entire driveway plowed? It may be more cost effective to allow the contractor to simply plow a car-wide path rather than plowing the entire surface.

3. Is your driveway paved? Plowing a gravel driveway often takes more time than plowing one that is paved and may result in a higher cost.

4. Do you have a snow removal contract? It is often more cost effective to have a seasonal contract for driveway snow removal rather than simply calling the contractor on an “as needed basis.”

5. Do you want the driveway treated with sand or salt? Sanding and salting may cost extra. Be sure to coordinate with the contractor in advance if you have concerns about children or pets or you require organic materials. There may or may not be an extra charge for alternative materials.

6. Is there a cost benefit to pre-placing reflectors or snow markers? Gauging the area of the driveway is often difficult without markers or reflectors. If the contractor is charging by the hour, the job may take longer if the contractor is slowed because the outline of the driveway is not marked.

7. Do you need the snow removed or melted? The cost for snow plowing usually covers the labor for pushing the snow to the side or end of the driveway. There will be an additional cost if you require the snow be hauled away or melted.
