Michigan may see less snow accumulation in 2021, but an app now allows the white ceilings and ice covering driveways and sidewalks to be removed using a mobile device.
GreenPal, a Nashville, Tennessee, company recently launched its Battle Creek app, which connects customers with local snow removal and lawn care professionals.
The company pretends to be the “Uber of Snow Removal and Lawn Service” through its app and website, where homeowners list their property with their service date and snow removal needs. Professionals then bid on their properties based on the details provided by the clients. These customers can then choose who to work with based on the vendor’s ratings, ratings, and price.
Once a vendor completes the service, they will send a timestamped photo of the completed work. Homeowners then pay via the app and can make additional appointments.
“We are very happy that we can keep people at a distance and not have to meet,” said Gene Caballero, co-founder of GreenPal. “We’re building a software company, we’re not trying to build a bigger landscaping company. They’re not our employees. They’re still their own boss. We’re making it easier for them to find more business, and we’re really a marketplace that is taking them away.” . ” some of the friction in finding a local business. “
GreenPal is free to use and register as a service provider. However, individuals must be 18 years of age and have commercially available equipment, as well as a valid social security number, driver’s license, and bank account.
GreenPal was launched in 2012 and now operates in over 200 markets including Detroit, Lansing, and Kalamazoo.
“We knew we had to grow this market in the Midwest this year. We launched it in Detroit and also in Kalamazoo,” said Caballero. “We started seeing homeowner registrations in the area (Battle Creek). When we see this, we know this is a market that we need to start sooner rather than later.”
