Free snowblowing? Give a blower to a neighbor?
I have a neighbor that his neighbor gave him his old real John Deere 5/22" blower. He said it's yours, you do your own driveway, you maintain it, only thing I ask is you do my sidewalk 75', and my 2 car driveway 30'. He liked the deal because he's been shoveling. That was a few years ago and he's still happy with the deal. However he's moving this year and is going to give me his snowblower. Unless there's a condition I continue, which I'll turn down, I'll get a customer maybe from it.
I have another neighbor that bought a snowblower with his neighbor, 50/50, on a new one. The deal was, this year I'll keep it at my house and do all the snows; next year you keep it at your house and you'll do all the snows. Well, his year came and he never did the snow on time or at all, work, dinner, family, cold, wet, tired, snow became hard and crusty, iced, it didn't work out. He bought out his share.
Another two neighbors, behind me, have an informal agreement to do each other's sidewalk when they are out, and one neighbor always does the very old lady whom lives between them, driveway.
