A snow removal contract is between a client and a contractor to get rid of snow and ice on a property in exchange for payment. This agreement can be made for commercial or residential use with the contractor being obligated to perform the services either immediately after a snowstorm or only upon request from the client.

Most snow removal contracts are paid on a “per job” basis with the contractor being paid the same amount no matter the amount of snowfall.
