WASHINGTON - With the potential for a major snowstorm in our forecast later this week, people in the D.C. area are already preparing for the worst.
A new app is eyeing our region looking to profit off the potential snowfall. It is called Plowz and Mowz and some are calling it the Uber for snow plows.
“We need at least 100 providers in the D.C. area to be able to meet any demand,” said Plowz and Mowz co-founder Wills Mahoney.
With just your phone, you can schedule a plow to clear your driveway using the app. You don’t even need to be home. They will text you a picture once the job is done.
"Minneapolis, Minnesota right now is our most successful market for plowing and then Boston comes a close second,” Mahoney said.
The app's creator said that in less than a week, it's possible they could have everything ready in order to plow here in the DMV.
“We have been able to do it in the past in other markets,” said Mahoney. “We're a 24/7 operation here, so if providers sign up, we will get them live, we will do all the necessary checks and we will see what we can do.”
For those of you looking forward for warmer weather later in the year, the “Mowz” portion of this app also offers lawn mowing and other landscaping needs on demand for users.
