You’re probably still enjoying sunny days on your patio, and the pumpkins are still ripening in the fields. But it’s time to think about your commercial property’s snow and ice removal.
Here in New York and Connecticut, snow can hit early, pile up fast and linger into spring. (Are you depressed yet?)
Left unattended, snow and ice can block the entrance to your property, cause slip-and-fall injuries, as well as accumulate on rooftops and cause catastrophic cave-ins, which can lead to serious property damage and sometimes lethal consequences for your employees and visitors.
Once the snow and ice hit, it’s crucial that you have a
qualified snow and ice contractor lined up to service your property. Your business depends on it.
Think you have plenty of time? Here are 4 reasons you should make your plan now:
Reason #1: You Need Time To Check Out Your Contractor
You don’t want just anybody signing on to keep your property safe for customers. Interview potential candidates now, and you’ll have time to verify your contractor has the proper qualifications and insurance to properly protect you and your property.
Reason #2: Your Contractor Needs Time To Get Ready For You
Your contractor needs time to prepare to add you to his client list, including making sure the company has the equipment and materials needed to do the job right all season.
Salt is a big part of the job, and prices have risen significantly during the past six months. Contractors need to know now how much they’ll need this winter.
Contractors also need time to get familiar with the properties they’ll be servicing. Your parking lots and sidewalks look much different under a blanket of snow. Your contractor and his or her staff want to take a good look before the snow hits.
Reason #3: It’s Better To Meet Now, During Nice Weather
It’s much more pleasant to meet with your contractor and discuss your needs now, before blustery weather hits. He’ll have more time to address your questions and concerns. You’ll want to point out specific areas of concern, analyze danger zones and figure out places that would make for good snow storage — before it’s all covered in snow.
Reason #4: You Don’t Want To Be Left Out In The Cold!
Wait until the last minute, and you may not find a contractor to fit you in. The best contractors are filling their available spots now.
