No matter where you live in New York state, you could experience anywhere from 2 to 10 feet of snow this winter. That certainly makes for a lot of shoveling to keep you and your family safe. This year, instead of breaking your back, why not let the experts at Hitch King fit your vehicle with a new snow plow and clear away the snow with ease? Our company has been servicing New York City and its boroughs for almost 50 years! That’s a lot of snow, and a lot of snow plows! We’ve put together a list of things to keep in mind to make sure you and your home stay safe and snow-free this winter.

Tips for using a snow plow

Where to Put the Snow

After you’ve had your truck or SUV fitted with a snow plow, you’re ready to start clearing your driveway without having to wait for the city or shovel it yourself. However, it’s important to be conscientious when deciding where to put the snow you’ve cleared. Too many people plow their driveways and then leave the snow in a huge heap in the street, forcing city workers to re-plow what they’ve already completed. Instead of dumping your snow in the street, find a place on your property to pile it safely away from the road.

On the Road with a Plow

Owning a snow plow can definitely make your winter driving easier and safer. However, just because you have a snow plow on your vehicle does not mean you’re immune to traffic warnings and weather advisories. Use common sense when selecting your route and remember to drive slowly and carefully, just as you would without a plow.
