You might think it is simply a matter of looking on the Internet to find a snow removal service in Utah you can count on, but you do need to do research. Before the snow flies, you will need to consider hiring a snow removal service in Utah. A snow removal contractor will check out and inspect your parking area and sidewalks to analyze the best strategies for snow and ice removal. They will also discuss with you the most convenient locations for snow piles that won’t interfere with your business.
If you are a business, you will need to make sure your snow removal service fits your needs. Ask these questions before you hire a snow removal service in Utah, and when you do hire them, get everything in writing.
Is the company reputable?
Chose a company with a high BBB rating. Check the company’s business and customer reviews online at www.bbb.org. Ask other customers about the company since other customers are the best way to determine how reliable a company is. Most snow removal companies have a website. Check these companies out online. www.landscapinginsaltlake.com has testimonials and videos of their snow removing services.
You can tell if a company is reputable if you have seen their work during the winter. A dangerous and snowy parking lot neglected for even a few days will leave a bad impression. Stay away from a company that isn’t responsible. Similarly, a plowed and salted parking will augment a company’s reputation.
It might be hard to remember how a parking lot was plowed last winter, but seasons go fast, and it will be winter before you know it.
A snow removal company in Utah should be able to work with you to determine the most convenient times for parking lot snow removal. Specify to the company how much snow may accumulate before the parking lot or sidewalks need to be plowed. Count on a snow removal contractor to keep your driveway, sidewalks and parking lot free of ice and snow.
Make sure that the snowplow company you hire will be there regularly during the winter to clear the lot. Your employees and customers need to see parking lot lines, so they know where to park. If the lines are not visible during snowy conditions your customers or employees may park anywhere that seems convenient and this can cause problems.
Does the company have insurance?
Insurance coverage might not seem important, but snow removal companies should be insured if any damage to your property occurs. A commercial snow removal company needs to insure the safety of your employees and ensure there is a path from the parking lot and their cars to the office building.
What are their payment terms?
How are costs calculated? Check out the company to make sure their charges are fair. Does the company charge based on the number of snow removal jobs they will do for you? Do they charge for a certain date range, or do they ask for monthly payments? Check your budget once you get payment terms to make sure you can afford their services.
What Services Does a Snow Removal Company in Utah Provide?
You might just want someone to plow your driveway or your parking lot, but if you believe you need walkway clearing or ice control, hire a company that includes these services. Ask what additional services are offered if you need future assistance in other areas of snow removal and management.
Get it in Writing
When comparing prices and services, get estimates in writing. You can then be assured that the prices a snow removal service in Utah quoted is the price you will be paying. You also need to know if the company’s price is fair and reasonable. Get in writing all services provided, the cost of materials, and if there are any additional charges.
After you have decided on a snow removal company in Utah, read your contract for your protection. The contract should include, at the very least:
- Insurance policy (name and number)
- Payment terms
- Beginning and ending dates of service
- A specific number of snow removals
- When snow removal will happen based on inches of accumulation or other factors
- Any special circumstances. If it snows outside of the contract date can a snow removal company in Utah provide extra services and at what cost?
Once you have your questions answered and the required documents in writing, you will have a positive experience and relationship with a snow removal company in Utah.
