    Do you guys shovel around cars that are left in driveways and the roadways at a condo site of around 55 units?

    No. If they want cleaned around they can move their car before a return visit.

    My parents are 86 and 87, I feel safer when they're driving instead of my 29 year old son. Age is a big factor but not the only one.

    Maybe it should be clarified.......driving in a snowstorm.

    To the OP: no.

    We don't even shovel in front of garage doors of customers that we don't do the walks for.

    Yes, and when it snows, they have to go to Walmart or McDonalds for their coffee.

    See here's the problem with you people(s) from the great white north

    Y'll have a sense of law and order and tighter penalties for criminal behavior. Hell, you cant get into Canada with a DUI on the record.

    Here, the American populations are full of rebels. DUIs and high speed chases are just the normal day in the life along with drive by shootings.

    Now with that type of training and backgrounds you expecting our elder rebels to have some sense stay home.....

    Our streets are paved with potholes, frost heaves, and road-killed squirrels.

    The coffee truck drivers make quick work of the squirrels, mystery meat sandwiches.

    If they're paying for the extra service, yes.....I wouldn't even give the option to do it around vehicles in the roadways though.

    I'll do whatever if it is getting paid for. Typically no though because they don't want to pay for it

    They are paying for driveways I'm sure and 98% of condos make u come back next day between 10-4 to do spots so just shovel while there and be done

    We used to do a set of condo's and they wanted a price to clean off the cars, shovel and salt between the cars (about 75 of them). I gave them the price and the guy about had a heart attack, he thought it would be maybe another 75 bucks or so....LOL

    Just to clarify they are 90 % younger people 30's and 40's its a new acct and while we were plowing at their place we just finished plowing the roadway and walks and people started pulling cars onto cleaned roads and clearing off the cars and pulling back into unplowed driveways then started telling workers to shovel around all the cars in driveways
