Toronto is expected to get another blast of winter tonight with 15 to 25 cm falling, through winds that may reach as fast as 70km per hour. Mother nature isn’t done with winter quite yet.
With the expected snowfall tonight, one Toronto-based app is doing their part to help out local homeowners. Jiffy, the Airbnb-style app for Home Services On Demand is offering free snow removal to all GTA residents. Using the promo code “SNOWDAY” on the website, users can have access to vetted and insured snowplows.
In a statement made by co-founder Paul Arlin, the company explained the promotion:
“Our goal is to save Torontonians time and make home maintenance as seamless as possible by providing trusted and insured snow removal providers to clear driveways and walkways across the city. We want all Torontonians to experience Jiffy’s reliable and convenient home services available on demand.”
Jiffy is expecting high volumes of snow plow requests tonight, with a typical wait time of three hours and will be served on a first-come-first-serve basis. If the demand of request is too high, the company is offering $50 off your next use with the app.
Go ahead and download the app, you might need it later. For more details check their website.
