Snow removal is just part of life in Utah. But if you don’t want it to be a part of your life anymore, use a snow-removal service.
Shoveling snow is tedious, time-consuming, backbreaking work. Plowing, while easier than shoveling, also takes a physical toll, plus many hours of dedicated work.
If your business doesn’t have a custodian, handyman or other type of general maintenance employee to help you with this task, you may be scrambling the next time the snow flies.
Snow Removal As Needed
Snow can fall sporadically. We can have a year with 25 inches of snow, then another year with 100 inches. Twenty-five sounds manageable, but 100 sounds like a mountain. For this reason, you may want to work with a snow-removal company on an as-needed basis, rather than signing on to a snow-removal contract.
This type of arrangement works especially well with business that are not open to the public, like factories or warehouses. You may be able to clear enough space for your workers to get to the job on time, or you may have the flexibility to open late.
Not so with a business like a grocery store, other retail outlet or insurance office.
Most of these open at 9 a.m. sharp, and if your driveway, parking lot and sidewalks aren’t cleared in time, you’ll lose business. These types of operations can’t take chances.
Be a Priority for Your Snow-Removal Company
Regardless of how you plan to use your snow-removal company, it’s best to identify them and set up an account ahead of time. Snow-removal services get tons of calls from strangers after every storm, but priority goes to clients. If you’re a repeat customer, you’ll get faster service.
Fast service is important to most people, especially when it comes to clearing away snow. So make sure you choose a company that has a reputation for quick responses. You can only expect so much in a snow emergency, but many companies are notorious for not keeping enough plowers under contract, so when it comes time to get the job done, they are scrambling to find workers the same way customers are looking for services.
Dependability is important.
Ability Must Match Task
You also want a company with adequate equipment. Does the company you rely on have a variety of plow sizes? The parking lot at Home Depot is a lot bigger than the one at Save-A-Lot. You don’t want a giant plow tearing up your asphalt and landscaping any more than you want a tiny truck pushing 6-foot-wide paths around all day in a quarter-acre lot.
