What to look for in a Professional Snow Management Company…
It may be tempting to ask your prospective snow removal contractor, if they do any properties just like yours. Likewise you may want to know how many trucks they have. Or what they are going to charge for their services. These are all very good questions, but they should not be the first ones you ask. Why? Because even if a contractor performs snow on a property just like yours, and has the best price in the market, could you use this prospective partner, if they did not have the proper insurance? Not to mention, several other critical factors to consider when selecting your next Professional Snow Management Company.
Here are ten items to dig into when looking for a prospective Snow Management Company..
- Do they have actual snow insurance coverage’s and endorsements on their insurance policy?
- Who owns their company? Are the a known industry professional?
- How long has this company and by extension its leadership been in business? How many catastrophic storm systems have they managed?
- Do they actually plow snow and treat ice? Or are they just another middle man, using sub-contractors who themselves possibly do not have the experience, proper insurance or infrastructure needed to care for your work.
- What did they do, when they ran out of salt over the past few winters? That is a trick question, because if they have salt silos, they should be able to carry enough inventory all the way through the end of the winter.
- What does their fleet of trucks look like? We would even recommend you visit their staging areas, to see if their fleet matches what their brochure displays.
- How will they communicate with you and with their team before, during and after a storm?
- How will they prepare for storms? Do they use a forecasting firm, that specializes in winter weather?
- What is their plan to service your property? Ask them to layout a standard plan and look for contingency planning for catastrophic storms.
- Always ask for references and always check them.
