What To Look For When Hiring A Snow Removal Contractor
Hiring a snow removal company for your Rockville or Columbia property? Be sure your property is in the right hands. Keep these five tips in mind:
Ask About Their Turnaround Time After A Storm
How quickly will the company be on your site after it snows? They should guarantee a response time, which normally ranges from one to three hours.
Check Their List Of Services
Ask the company to break down exactly what they will — and won’t — do. Do they clear parking lots, sidewalks and entrances of snow and ice? Spray de-icers? What type of preventative snow and ice measures do they take?
Will they haul and remove all of the snow from the property? If not, where does it go?
Know exactly what you’ll be getting before signing a contract.
Verify They Have The Required Insurance
Your snow removal company crews should have safety training, but accidents happen. Be sure they’re covered by insurance.
They should provide you with their proof of insurance, which should include liability coverage and workers’ compensation.
Make Sure They Track Equipment And Employees
If someone is injured and says they slipped on the ice on your property, can you prove you had a snow and ice removal company clear your lot and walkways?
If your snow removal contractor uses GPS tracking, they have proof of exactly when and were they were on your property.
Ask About Their Snow Removal Equipment
The best snow removal crews are only as good as their equipment. If a snow removal company’s equipment is out of commission, they won’t do you much good.
Make sure your contractor uses quality, commercial-grade machines and attachments to clear your property. The company should also perform daily inspections on the equipment to ensure it’s working properly. In case of an issue, they should have back-up machines so you’re not left in the lurch.
