Best way to clear parking spaces?

Guy's have a condo building that wants parking spots cleaned. The problem is they are between two buildings so I can't back the truck up and push it in. Any ideas on what I could use? the blowers seem to be taking to long I actually heard someone say they used a backpack blower?

Need some advice!

drive forward up to the curb, drop your blade and back up. then push the snow where you want it. A pic would deff make this easier.

I find that a skidloader with a 100 inch snow bucket works the best.
