4 Things To Ask Your Snow Removal Contractor

As Canadians, we’re no strangers to snowfall, even though many of us are caught off guard by its early arrival the odd year. The inconvenience of heavy snowfall goes far beyond the nuisance of having to wake up 20 minutes earlier to shovel your car out of the driveway, especially if you own a commercial property.

Sometimes, the inconvenience of heavy snowfall can mean liability claims, tickets from the city, and forced business closures. A professional snow removal contractor is a sure way to avoid or significantly reduce the chances of slips, trips, or falls with people visiting your property, but how do you know if you’re getting the right contractor for the job? Well, here are a few ways.

To ensure you’re getting the snow removal service you deserve, consider asking the following questions.

  • Are you insured for liability? If so, for how much?
  • Do you offer flat-rate and all-inclusive contracts for the season?
  • Is there a minimum accumulation amount in order for you to start?
  • Do your services include snow removal on walkways?

By asking these questions to a prospective snow removal contractor, you can easily determine the quality of your snow removal service, before committing. Always remember to sand and salt your property as well, to make sure it is safe for any foot traffic on your premises.
