Choosing your snow removal is no small task. Do you look in your neighborhood and on the Internet and see them at different prices, without really understanding the differences?
You may choose one at random and hope it is knowledgeable and honest, and you may be disappointed with the quality of the service or you may even go so far as to have to shovel and, if so, try a different one next winter.
Choosing the cheapest snow removal is probably not the best solution. You may be dissatisfied with the frequency and quality of your snow removal’s service, with non-existent customer service, and perhaps even pay for not having service after a certain time and no response to your requests or calls. On the other hand, you can also make a wise and informed choice and avoid all these inconveniences.
To help you see more clearly and simplify your choice, here are the important points to consider, as well as several pitfalls to avoid.
IMPORTANT POINTS TO CONSIDER
In order to determine which snow removal is best for you, you need to start by establishing your priorities.
Frequency of snow removal
Service frequency refers to the number of passes your snow removal will make during each storm. More snow remover has a customer near each other, the more the frequency of the passages will be high.
Time of first snow removal
Determine the guaranteed first pass time that best suits your morning departure, then choose a snow removal that guarantees you to pass for the first time before this time. Make sure it is listed in your contract as a guarantee.
Cleanliness of the snow removal service
To do a clean job, your snow removal must have several types of equipment configurations suited to your particular need. For example, the use of extendable scraper equipped with Teflon knives promotes cleaning that will not damage the coating of your driveway. Also, the use of a blower tractor makes it possible to pile up snow in the appropriate places without damaging your land or causing breakage to your street furniture.
Duration of your snow removal contract
To ensure that you never touch a winter shovel, make sure the contract start and end dates cover the entire winter season. For several years, it is not uncommon to see snow in April. Also, find out what will happen if it snows outside of these dates.
In order to provide good customer service, a snow removal must have sufficient office staff to answer your calls, during and after precipitation.
