Shovler to Commemorate Juneteenth

Shovler is proud to announce that all employees will have off this friday in honor of Juneteenth.

We believe that it is important today to commemorate and celebrate Black history and culture, perhaps now more than ever.

Shovler believes in complete racial equality; period. We are proud to establish this friday as a day of reflection on what we can all do better to improve the current situation in America.

 

National Billboard Campaign!

We are proud to announce the launch of a new nationwide billboard campaign!

Send us pictures when you see them to admin@shovler.com!

Remember to download the Shovler App to get snow removed from your house and take back the fun snow days that you remember as a kid.

Keep your eyes out in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Boston, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Denver and other areas!

The Shovler App is the easiest way to hire a snow shoveler.

Record Cold!

Shovelers,

Please be safe out there during the record cold that we are seeing across the US and Canada. This Polar Vortex is nothing to take lightly.

We have raised prices in order to limit the amount of orders during this cold in order to keep shovelers safe and to compensate them for the difficult conditions.

Once again, if you are shoveling snow – make sure to take the proper precautions. Dress warm and take frequent breaks to go indoors.

Best,

Shovler Team

New Version of the Shovler App Released!

We are proud to announce the release of the latest version of the Shovler App on Android or Apple!

The improvements for the latest release were primarily related to enhancing performance rather than adding functionality. Our view is why fix something that isn’t broke!

We spent a lot of time improving the app for shovelers including:

  • Adding cancellation fees to users that cancel
  • Increasing the search radius to 20 miles
  • Showing a circle around your search area
  • Working with Stripe to alleviate any issues

For users requesting snow removal, we tried to make the app even easier to use and added the ability to chat with shovelers after the job is submitted as Finished.

We’ve extended our promotion for shovelers to get reimbursed for a portion of their snow removal gear up to December 21st – so make sure to sign up now!

We are very excited about this winter and look forward to more snow!

El Niño Snowfall Projections

Weather.com put together a pretty interesting analysis of the projected snowfall for El Niño patterns.

In general, they found that “El Niño tends to produce less-snowy-than-average seasons in the northern tier of states, but a snowier-than-average southern tier.”

They also found that the positive or negative NAO has a major effect on the snowfall.

This is all the more reason to download the best snow removal app now. Whether you’re looking for someone to shovel your driveway, or looking to make money shoveling snow this winter, the Shovler App is your best friend. h

Is shoveling snow a good way to get exercise during the winter?

We ran across this question recently on a message board and thought that the answers were worth sharing:

“Shoveling snow can be a very intense activity potentially improving your aerobic fitness, muscular endurance, and aid in weight loss. Make sure to wear appropriate clothing, including a hat and gloves. It is equally important to stay dry and wear proper footwear that repels moisture.

When shoveling snow use your legs to help lift the snow and concentrate on keeping your abdominals tight helping protect your low-back.”

“Yes! First, I would suggest to warm-up as one of my colleagues mentioned. Second, make sure to not do too much at one time (15-20 minutes or so) and use your legs to lift to protect your low back. Third, try one of the new ergonomic shovels with the curved handle which is good for pushing snow as well. I hope this helps and have fun!”

“It’s great! Warm up your trunk muscles a bit before you start with some easy twisting movements and stretch your lower back while you are standing, by hugging your knees into your chest, one at a time.”

Sign up for the Shovler App so you can find “exercise jobs” this winter 🙂

Always stay safe!

New Shovler App Upgrade to be Released Soon – Winter Kickoff in Calgary!

We’re excited that the new winter season has already begun in Calgary, Canada and we’re proud to announce that we will be releasing an updated Shovler App soon!

The Shovler App will continue to offer snow removal nationwide and parts of Canada for the 2018-2019 winter season!

Over the last 6 months we’ve worked hard to improve the app tremendously for both users and shovelers. The latest upgrade enhances performance, fixes bugs,  and improves flow from last year’s app.

We reviewed hundreds of feedback and tried to incorporate as much as possible into the latest version.

One small example: shovelers will now be able to better manage their radius settings for finding jobs.

We look forward to working with you again this winter for all of your snow removal needs. If you’re a business with over 100 properties that need snow removal, please contact us at admin@shovler.com for information about our new business solutions.
