Here are six questions to think about concerning your snow and ice management contract:

  1. What is the plan? Did you set up snow removal services for only plowing the parking lot? Or will the walkways be shoveled as well? Will we add ice melt?


  1. Where are we going to put the snow? Will we remove the snow for you, or will we move it to a snow pile? Where will the snow pile be located?


  1. When do we first arrive to plow and shovel your property? Does your contract with us say we remove snow per inch or per storm? Is there a timeframe for removing snow and ice from your property?


  1. Do you know our policies concerning extreme weather conditions—such as high winds, extremely low temperatures, and icy conditions?


  1. Have you set it up with us in a contract to plow you out more than one time during a heavy snowfall?


  1. Is your contract seasonal or hourly with us? Which snow contract will be the most cost-effective for your budget this winter?

If you don’t know the answers to the above questions, you need to pull out your contract with us before the first snowfall so you know what to expect.

Two final thoughts: We are fully insured and can show you our current liability insurance certificate. And we’re available 24/7 during all snow events to ensure that you receive the best snow and ice removal services.
