Why do I want to join SnowSOS?
We are the first app to cover your snow removal work with insurance while you plow or shovel for the jobs booked through the SnowSOS app. You bring your plow and snow removal equipment, we bring the customers and the insurance coverage. We provide coverage for property damage and third-party injury on the job up to $100,000 and bodily injury to a third-party up to $5,000 for 24 hours after you have completed the job. Get the app and get started.
Don’t I already have coverage?
If you are plowing or shoveling and you only have a personal Auto policy, most likely you do not. Most personal auto policies have an exclusion that takes effect when you lower your plow.
How much do I pay for the service?
Unlike insurance policies you'll find in the market, you pay nothing out of pocket to join and get coverage with SnowSOS. We collect a 25% charge plus applicable taxes on each job. This appears as a seperate line item in the job summary so you always know what you will earn before you accept the job.
How long will it take me to get paid?
Stripe is both the credit card processer and payout distributor to your account. It takes them 7 days to clear customer payments before funds are transferred to your account. It can take up to 48 hours for that transfer to be available in your account.

Why should I use SnowSOS?
Some snow removal providers are not covered by plow insurance and may not know it. SnowSOS is the first and only app to provide insurance coverage to our providers for the work they do on your property. Our SnowCrew is covered during work and after the job is completed for a full 24 hours! In the unlikely event that something is damaged or someone is injured during the snow removal process or after completion in the 24 hour period, our streamlined SnowSOS app makes it easy for you to report a claim from inside the app. To view terms and conditions visit the claim section of our app for details.

Can I hire someone outside the app?
Of course but most plow operators have an exclusion on their Auto policy that excludes coverage once they hook a plow onto their vehicle. If they hurt anyone or break anything it is not covered by that policy leaving you and your property at risk. Our SnowCrew has insurance coverage that is tailored to the work they are doing on your property. Download the app to hire a snow removal pro you can be confident has coverage.
How is the service charged?
We have a fixed cost pricing model that is fair based on your area. The SnowCrew may add charges to your snow removal job unique to your needs before the job begins. You may choose to accept or decline the charge. Keep in mind, the SnowCrew may also decline the job if they feel the charge should be accepted before they begin. If your job request is declined twice your request will be cancelled and a $5 charge will be incurred.

How do I hail a SnowCrew?
SnowSOS allows customers to create a snow removal request each time it snows with the requirements for the job.
How long does it take for a plow/shoveler to come over?
Each job entered is subject to the availability of the SnowCrew providers in your area. They all will want to take your job but they must have their status set to available and not be on a current job. They can accept your job when they're free and you will be alerted when they do.
