We just closed on a house last Monday. I cleared the driveway by hand at the rental, as it is not that long (about 3 car lengths) but we went to the new house and just kept looking at the driveway. Luckily the agent that had the listing for the house we bought came by in a Chevy K2500 with Fisher plow. He charged us $50 to plow it, and I remember just righting out a check for $8000 to him, did not make me happy, and he did a crappy job. but it sure beat trying to shovel a 150 foot driveway and turnaround with 18 inches of snow by hand! And there was no one else even answering phone calls.
We were supposed to start moving this weekend but that got delayed. I think we need to invest in a really big snow blower. I suggested putting a plow on the wife's BMW SUV but she did not like the idea.
Sad. Having been in the real estate business with my wife for years, I would have plowed your driveway for free... and brought you a bottle of wine to enjoy by the fireplace that evening.
