How to Hire the Best Commercial Snow Removal Service?
Finding a snow removal service may seem like the easiest thing in the world. You can just go to the internet and search snow removal. Right? You may find yourself disappointed if you are not educated on what to look for, and what questions to ask.
- Estimates — You will want to get multiple estimates, but look closely. The lowest price is not always the best value. Has the commercial snow removal service completed a full property assessment? Does the estimate address your specific needs?
- Insurance — Who is responsible if the grounds suffer damage? Will the commercial snow removal service make repairs? Find out the type of insurance the contractor provides.
- Contract — Don’t accept a wink and a handshake. Insist on a written contract that includes details from a full property assessment, and insure they address all your needs in writing. What are they including, and what will cost extra?
- Terms — Are you paying per snow removal or per season? Are you expected to pay the full contract amount upfront, or can you split payments over the season?
- Scams — Even when a company looks legitimate, there is a risk. Ask for references. If a company is unable or unwilling to answer all your questions, this is a reason to worry.
