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

 

Become a Snow Shoveler and We’ll Buy you a Shovel (or Give You $10)!

Last winter, snow shovelers earned hundreds of thousands of dollars by using the Shovler App to find nearby jobs. We expect this year to be even bigger!

In case you haven’t heard about us, the Shovler App connects users in need of snow removal throughout the USA and parts of Canada, with users that are willing to shovel snow to earn extra money and help their neighbours.

Interested in becoming a snow shoveler this season but don’t have a shovel?

Register before December 21st to become a snow shoveler on the Shovler App, and we’ll reimburse you up to $30 for your shovel, snowblower, salt, or snow-brush.

If you already own a shovel, we’ll add $10 to your third job instead!

Reimbursement will be made after you complete 3 jobs through the app.

You must connect an active Stripe account to your Shovler account before November 1st to be eligible and full registration takes less than 10 minutes.

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.

ABC Chicago Met up with a Shoveler from the Shovler App!

ABC Chicago WindyCity Live met up with Jason Clark, a shoveler on the Shovler App, this week doing a job he accepted on the app. Here is a clip!

Although the clip is short, and doesn’t really do a great job of explaining the app, we love the clip because it shows just how great the Shovler community can be and the fun shovelers can have doing jobs.

A big thank you to Ji and Jason for being such great shovelers on the Shovler platform! And a big thank you to the rest of the tens of thousands of shovelers that are part of the Shovler community! You guys have been doing a fantastic job this winter.

We hope if you’re in Chicago, Milwaukee, Cleveland, Detroit (or other areas nearby) that you’re ready for a lot of snow shoveling jobs as you’re about to be hit by major snow storm Mateo.

Remember to tell your friends about Shovler too as the more people that are active, the more jobs that will be available. Let them know that Shovler is the easiest way to hire a snow shoveler!

As always, the Shovler app can be downloaded from the App Store or the Play Store.

Some more positives reviews on the Shovler App

The Shovler App is proud to have completed lots of jobs during the latest storm – especially in Denver, Boulder, Milwaukee, Minneapolis and St. Paul. We completed many jobs throughout Colorado, Wisconsin and Minnesota and even in places like Alaska and Quebec City.

We just wanted to share some nice reviews from the latest storm:

“I am SO HAPPY with the job my shovler did! When I placed the order I thought “ah, this is a bit pricey” but honestly he did an amazing job and this weather is no joke. So THANK YOU!! huge help for a little pregnant lady!”

“Best app ever! Created a profile, submitted a request and an hour later, two folks were doing a kick-butt job shoveling out my Denver driveway and walk!”
