Chances are you’ve come upon our blog post because you’re looking for a commercial snow and ice removal company, so, consider this. Working with property owners every day, we know that the cost of operation can run high and budgets are tight. Think twice before you sacrifice quality, certification, proper insurance or experience to save a penny.
- Customers will NOT risk their safety to come to your property if it is not plowed. Even your long time customers will ultimately choose the next place if it has a plowed parking lot that they can easily access.
- When you choose a company with unlicensed, uninsured and inexperienced workers, you put your property in danger of being damaged. Only experience and proper training can ensure that your company knows exactly which ice melt your property needs and how to properly control their equipment.
- Your employees should only be doing what they are hired to do. Don’t put them in danger by using them for your own snow and ice removal needs.
- Slip-and-fall chances will reduce with a properly plowed lot. Professional contractors know exactly what to do to properly take care of snow and to prevent ice build up.
- Your business needs to be cleared in a timely manner, preferably before business hours. When you flip your sign from closed to open, your lot should be clear and free for people to traverse to get to your doors. A company that doesn’t just come when a certain amount of snow falls is important.
Choose a commercial snow and ice removal service that will take care of all of these issues. Saving money by hiring the fly by night service that advertises on craigslist may not be the best option. We are still taking on new contracts for snow removal now, hurry before 2017’s next big storm approaches.

Planning ahead is one of the most important aspects of the snow removal business. Not every driveway is the same from the makeup of the driveway, the shape, length and many other possible combinations of differences make it so that each client needs its own planning and preparation to do the job right.
Here are a few things to discuss with your snow removal company so that you make sure they are planning ahead for your property.
- Gravel, Dirt, Paver, Asphalt, Dirt. All of these materials could possibly be under the snow; your snow removal team needs to know what they are working with. Alert your snow removal company to what type of driveway you have so that they can plan ahead for each type’s individual needs.
- Size of Driveway. Discuss your driveway length and shape; let them know if it is wider, longer or steeper than usual. This will help both the driver and the team understand what they are getting into when dealing with clearing your property.
- Lawn, Statues, Bird Baths, Mailbox. Let your snow removal company know where any permanent fixtures are on your property. When snow piles high, the driver may not be able to discern if he is backing into a pile of snow, or a bird bath.
With a little planning, your relationship with your snow removal company will be a cool breeze on a warm day. When the snow removal team knows exactly what to expect and are well prepared, they can do a better, more efficient job in clearing your snow.
