Who’s in charge of snow removal on your property? Haven’t thought about it yet? Well, we might be having an anticlimactic October so far, but don’t be fooled, winter is just around the corner. Make sure you are covered the first day the snow falls by securing your commercial snow removal company now. Before you sign a contract, think again about the company you’ve used in the past and make a decision for the future. Timing, liability, experience, and insurance are the top 4 things you should be looking for in a company, and at DeCarlo Landscaping, that’s what you get. 

  1. Timing: Don’t put up with a commercial snow removal company that shows up late making your customers and staff navigate or park around a plow job in progress. These types of timing issues shouldn’t happen when you use a professional and is a red flag. Barring an extreme weather event, your service should work around your business hours, have enough vehicles in their fleet to handle their client load, and will not waste your time. 
  2. Liability: Did you know that it is your legal responsibility if someone gets hurt on your property due to uncleared snow and ice? Many towns have imposed strict laws requiring commercial property owners to remove snow in a timely manner. You can avoid the chance of penalties and fines when you use a professional plowing service with a full liability of their own. 
  3. Experience: Always look for someone with experience in the industry, not the fly by night flyer on a telephone pole company. When you use a company with over 30 years of experience in the industry, like DeCarlo, you know you are using a company who has experience dealing with the local weather, has policies and practices in place for storms and unpredicted weather events, and who will be there year after year on time providing efficient service. 
  4. Insurance: Snow plow insurance is required by law in all states for any company providing commercial snow removal. Make sure that the company you sign with can prove their insurance to you. This will protect you and your business if any legal issues pop up.
