Snow Plowing Invoice Template

A snow plowing service invoice gives those that clear roads and private driveways, lay down de-icing agents, shovel pathways, and provide other snow-removal services a means of charging clients via a method that promotes on-time payment and organization. Snow removal is an essential service for keeping society moving and is a seasonal profession that is typically in effect for a portion of the year. Because of its short-term nature, snowplow drivers need to get paid on time and in full to avoid unpaid services extending into other work seasons.

How Much to Charge for Snow Plowing

Generally speaking, there are three (3) pricing methods snowplow operators can employ for their snow removal services.

  • Per Push (Per Plow): With this method, the snow removal company or driver issues an invoice each time an area is cleared of snow. If the winter is exceptionally harsh with several storms, drivers can make a significant amount of money, as particularly heavy snowfalls can result in drivers being called several times in a single day. With this method of charging, snow operators can charge differing amounts based upon the depth of the snow.
  • Seasonal Contracts: The second (2nd) type of pricing is typically preferred by clients that run businesses or who need to factor in the cost of snow removal ahead of time. The pricing model requires clients to pay a single upfront fee that covers them for the entire winter. Unlike the first option, a heavy winter that requires significant amounts of plowing can save the customer far more money than if they had gone with the “per push” option.
  • Hourly: Charging on an hourly basis is a popular option, as the amount due by the customer can be easily tracked and clients can understand the rate they will be charged upfront. For seasoned snow removers, charging by the hour is less preferred, as the amount of money that can be earned is limited to the number of hours in a day, whereas when charging per push, the more lots and driveways that can be cleared in the day, the more money earned. However, charging by the hour is preferable for those that enjoy taking their time and who prefer the stability of earning a set amount per hour of their work.
