As a Minnesota business owner, you know how important it is to keep your commercial property safe and accessible during the winter months. Snowy, icy walkways can reduce visibility and cause slips, putting the safety of your employees and customers at risk.
Hiring a company to cover your snow removal keeps your business’s exterior areas snow-free and takes one more thing off your plate. Before you choose a provider, however, you need to be sure they’re reputable.
Considerations When Hiring a Snow Removal Company
Experience and Reputation
Ideally, the commercial snow removal company you hire should have been in business for a few years—long enough to understand the unique challenges Minnesota winters bring. You’ll likely be able to find information about their company history on their website. In addition, check their reviews to learn more about their past clients’ experiences.
A snow removal company is only as good as its equipment. The company you choose should have commercial-grade tools and machinery that are capable of handling heavy snowfall and packed ice. That may include snowplows, loaders, shovels, salt spreaders, and snow blowers.
Availability and Reliability
When hiring a commercial snow removal company, ask them about their turnaround time. Are they available 24/7? How soon can you expect their services after it snows? In addition, ask about their plan for snow emergencies. Snowstorms are a given during Minnesota winters, so you need to ensure you can count on them in a pinch.
Insurance and Certification
Last—but definitely not least—ensure your potential commercial snow removal company has proper insurance and certification. The right certification ensures they’re qualified to provide snow removal services, while insurance protects you, your business, your employees, and your customers.
Considering these factors will make hiring a commercial snow removal company much easier. Don’t rush this process—the time and research required will be worth finding a company you can rely on.
