November is around the corner, and we all know what that means- snow is a matter of weeks or even days away. If you own or manage a commercial property, hiring the right snow removal company before the whiteouts hit is mission-critical.
However, there’s more to hiring a snow removal contractor than randomly picking a few names and calling for estimates. The company you hire will be responsible for keeping your properties safe for your employees, tenants, and their visitors until the snow melts, so you’ll have to review your options closely. In this blog, the team at Green Collar Landscaping shares some tips for picking a winner!
Do They Plan Snow and Ice Management?
Snow and ice management plans are essential for large commercial properties and other facilities. These plans include information such as hours of operation, staging areas for snow, high priority areas, and equipment utilization, among others.
To keep your business running smoothly, even during a winter storm, you should hire a snow removal company that will take these considerations into account. At Green Collar Landscaping, we plan our snow removal services to match the unique needs and layout of each commercial property.
Do They Monitor the Weather?
During the brutal Ontario winters, snowstorms are unpredictable and can strike without warning. It’s important to choose a snow removal company that monitors the weather constantly and is ready to respond to changing conditions as they occur.
At Green Collar Landscaping, we use advanced weather monitoring technology to make sure our snowplow drivers are prepared before the storm hits. With this information, we are able to plan how our fleet of drivers will be deployed throughout the Greater Hamilton area.
Is Their Equipment Well-Maintained?
During a winter storm, the last thing you want to hear from your snow removal company is that their equipment broke down. When choosing a contractor for this service, ask about the type and the age of the equipment they use. An aging fleet could cause issues down the road.
The snow removal division of Green Collar Landscaping is committed to providing a high and dependable level of service, so we invest in our plows and other equipment and keep them well-maintained.
Do They Have Good Customer Reviews?
Positive customer feedback is a good indicator of how efficient and professional a company is. Check the testimonials on their website and Google My Business listing to see how clients have responded to their service in the past. You can even ask for some references from clients with commercial properties similar to yours, so you get a reasonable idea of what to expect.
Hiring the Right Snow Removal Company Protects Your Business
A delay in plowing services can be a substantial liability to customers, tenants, and the public. To keep your commercial property as safe as possible, you need to keep all parking lots, driveways, and sidewalks salted and free of snow.
