Don’t Make the No. 1 Commercial Snow Removal Mistake

Hire a Professional for Peace of Mind

When you own a business, there is a great deal of responsibility to juggle. From payroll and HVAC issues to customer relations and supply orders, it seems there’s always something to keep tabs on. So, quite naturally, the last thing you want to be bothered with in the middle of a bitter winter snowstorm is a parking lot filled with all that white stuff.

Don’t fret. We are here with solutions to help ease those cold, icy worries!

What’s the safest way for a business owner to keep employees and staff safe during a snowstorm? Easy. Hire a professional to do your seasonal snow removal so you can concentrate solely on running your business.

However, here’s our big tip: Don’t just hire anyone with a snowplow.

The No. 1 mistake business owners make when hiring a commercial snow removal service is assuming that every company provides the same service in the same manner. And this is simply not true. Just as you hire the right folks with the right skills for specific roles at your company, you want to do the same when considering your professional snow removal service.

Here are five things your commercial snow removal company should offer:

  1. Proper equipment
    This is huge. Ask your potential plower if the company uses quality, commercial-grade equipment that is in excellent condition. It may sound like a no-brainer, but it’s important. It’s also wise to ask if the company has backup machines in case one of its vehicles breaks down.
  2. Timely service
    Ask how quickly your lot will be cleared when a storm hits. Most likely, you won’t be the service’s only client. Understand your position in line, so you can let your employees and customers know.
  3. A good reputation
    Google reviews and Yelp exist for a reason—so you can choose the very best service amid a sea of options. Read reviews, talk to friends and check out those business ratings first—before making a final decision.
  4. Thorough services
    Check each company’s list of services. Does it offer everything you need, including plowing, de-icing, salt spreading and walkway shoveling? Know which services you need—and which are offered—before signing an agreement. 
  5. Insured service
    Most commercial snow removal companies are insured. If a company isn’t, you might wonder why—and cross that choice off of your list.
