In less than half a year, we are going to experience the winter with heavy snow and ice. Based on what we have witnessed in the last years, we can expect that this ice and snow can interfere with our activities in one way or the other. For this reason, most people and especially the business owners are looking for ways to prepare in advance by organizing for commercial snow plowing with a prominent and a reliable snow plowing company.
With such a company, you will not have to worry about waking up to report to a snow blocked business office. But how will you choose a perfect company that will work on snow plowing seamlessly? What are some of the questions you will seek answers from the company before you enter into a contract? This brief has all these and additional tips that will help you make a sound decision.
How fast do you respond after a winter snowfall or a storm?
I think this is the most important question to ask. Are you wondering what would happen if the company you go for is unable to respond to your call fast in due time? That would compromise the operations of your business and at the same time waste you and your business a lot of money and time. For that reason, you have to think about how fast will your snow company be able to respond to the call? Ask them all these questions and demand detailed answers. Inquire whether the company will come immediately you call them during a heavy snowfall or they will wait for it to stop.
To help your company respond faster and better, they expect you to share with them your business hours so that they will know the best time of the day to start their activities. I bet you don’t want piles of snow at the entrance that would block the way as visitors, clients and employees report.
Where will you be putting the snow?
Before you choose any of the companies out there, ask about what they do with the already removed snow and how they do it. Furthermore, you can ask where the company puts the snow and how efficient that will be. What this means is that you should ask them to explain where the snow will be put and whether that will affect your business or the neighbourhood.
Will you be doing any pre-treating of my site?
I know you care so much about your property and how well the company will remove the snow. With that, you have to inquire whether the snow removal company in Calgary you are about to choose will perform any type of pre-treatment on the site. If they do, then they are right for you. If they don’t, it will be a wise decision to look for one that offers this service.
Will you perform any follow-up treatments?
After the whole process has been conducted and the snow removed, you need a company that will follow up for treatments thereafter. You need a company that will inquire and visit the site several times to see how you are doing and if everything is okay. The company should also be at a position to offer all post-treatment measures.
What kind of equipment do you have?
Before you sign a contract with any company, you must ensure they have the right equipment and hardworking employees. This will ensure they are super fast in dealing with your issue and are also at a capacity to solve the problem as needed. I am sure you need a company that can provide proof that they are capable of solving the problems at hand. You also have to ensure that their equipment are fitted with GPS tracking systems which will provide the information about when they arrived, how long they were there and when they packed.
How do I communicate with you during a storm?
Don’t let the snow be a cause of worry this coming winter. Hire a snow removal company that you can reach out to fast enough and be at a capacity to respond and act swiftly to remove the snow. Ask them about their best methods of communication and the best way you can reach out to them. First of all, check reviews about their customer care. If their customer care is able to respond fast and solve your issues, then this is the company to go for.
The above are some of the questions you can ask. However, there’s no limit to how much information you can ask from the company you want to contract with. Delve deeper into their company and be sure you are hiring the best partner.
