Effective immediately, I am looking for someone to perform snow removal at our house in Keene. Here’s (most of) the details:
Snow is to be removed from our drive way, walkway, and front steps. It may be deposited in piles beside those areas, but must be done in such a way as to leave sufficient room for an entire year’s snow while keeping the entire cleared surfaces clear.
The snow may not be moved with a plow in any way that causes damage to the grass on either side of the driveway. This means that the driveway portion of the job cannot be completed entirely with a plow and I am strongly biased against using one at all (even just to get a start on clearing the middle of the driveway). It may be moved with a snowblower (recommended for the driveway and walkway) or shovel in a damage-free fashion. The steps require using a shovel.
No salt is to be placed on the cleared surfaces (they’re concrete).
The driveway is 30 feet wide by about 40ish feet long. The steps and walkway are about 5 feet wide and the walkway is a little over 20 feet long I think. The location is West Keene very near Keene High School.
The work should be performed shortly after snowfall ends. If the storm is extremely heavy or multiple storms come in close succession, multiple clearings are welcomed.
All required equipment is to be provided by the service provider.
The service provider should mail printed bills periodically for service rendered and expect 100% payment for all bills received by check via the mail in 4-6 weeks. Alternatively, the service provider may email bills and receive a check via mail a bit sooner. I pay bills with extremely high reliability (so far, my lifetime track record is exactly 100%) but I generally pay slowly due to my travel schedule and bill payment practices. If this is problematic, I am open to exploring a prepayment arrangement for professional candidates with good references who are ready to do the accounting.
I expect the service to be provided in a timely and reliable fashion. In the event the service provider cannot do so, it will be the service provider’s responsibility to secure a substitute who meets all of these specifications and handle all of the money (i.e. we’d never know someone else did the work), or notify us as soon as possible so we can make other arrangements.
Most of the above is non-negotiable, but some details could be changed if the price is right. I prefer, though, to pay more for exactly what I want, hence my detailed description of the job.
