The cost for plowing a typical driveway and sidewalk averages $45 as of 2015, according to ProMatcher. The rate can change dramatically depending on how long it takes to get the job done.
The cost for removing snow ranges between $56 and $95 per hour for an average of $75 per hour, but there are several factors that may affect the cost. For example, removing snow from sidewalks and stairs takes more time and requires more physical labor. Ice removal also requires more effort, as does deep snow removal. The presence of these factors may require an increase in fees.
