Questions to Ask When Hiring a Snow Removal Service Provider
As soon as the snow falls, ads pop up on Kijiji, Craig's List, and other social media networks promoting snow removal services. There are a lot of fly-by-night snow removal operations that may just leave you out in the cold if you don't do your research! Before you hire any snow removal service, you need to ask them some meaningful questions that will ensure you get the value for the money your business is spending.
Is this Company Reliable?
You should be able to count on the company to keep the promises that they make to customers. You should determine if the company you are considering hiring is well staffed with dependable employees. If you are expecting to have the snow quickly cleared off of your property after the flurries fall, you need to make this expectation well known, and you have every right to ask about their results in the past. You should also confirm the company's policy if they're unable to provide you with service within 24 hours of a snow fall.
Does the Company have the Right Equipment?
Snow removal requires some heavy duty equipment. Before you sign any agreement, you should inquire about the trucks and equipment that the company has at their disposal. They should have equipment appropriate to the type and size of job they need to do for you. Otherwise, you will be left disappointed when they don't have the capability to complete the work.
Do they Have a Respected Reputation?
When you are researching snow removal companies it's important to ask around to determine if they have a positive standing with former customers. Other business owners in your area may have the inside track on this particular snow removal service provider, and they might be able to give you an idea of how they conduct business and treat their customers. Knowing this information before hand can help you decide whether or not to sign that contract.
Is their Price Right?
The main concern of most businesses will be the price of the snow removal contract. When you ask about the cost, you should consider if the quote is in line with other companies you have researched. If the price seems unreasonably high, the company might be taking advantage of you. On the other hand, a number that's too low could be a red flag as well. Legitimate companies will also have different payment options and flexible payment plans for their customers.
