Need some help with snow/ice removal for your business? Now is the time to start planning! Before signing a contract there are some very important questions to ask. This is, after all, the northeast and having a clear parking lot helps ensure customers are happy and safe. Below are four tips to inquire about to in order to find the right company to best fit your snow removal needs.
Be clear on what is included in your snow removal services
When researching companies for snow removal services it is important to find out what is included. For instance, is the company you are about to sign an agreement with responsible for just the parking lot area or are they responsible for that and all sidewalks and entrances to your business? This is very important to know in advance so you’ll be assured that your customers and employees will enter and exit your building safely.
Ask about additional charges
It is also important to research if there are any additional charges that will go above and beyond your contract. Also, as it continues to snow, how often is the snow and ice cleared? These are very important questions to ask so your employees can focus on their jobs rather than removing ice and snow that is not covered in their contract.
Ask about materials used
Is salt or sand used to combat the snow and ice? Or perhaps, a combination of both. Ask these important questions and to find the benefits of these materials that may be used on the property of your business.
Ask for referrals
The last tip for choosing a snow and ice removal company for your business is to ask for referrals. It is reassuring to hear positive feedback from other businesses that utilize the company you are about to hire. So asking for referrals is a must. This way you can rest assured that you have chosen the right snow removal company for your business.
