Snow Removal Service
As the Fall slowly comes to an end, a lot of landscape contractors begin to focus all their attention on snow removal. This is a great way to keep every single member of their team and their equipment busy all year long. The following are some tips which can help ensure that everyone is ready to make a move as soon as the first snow hits the town. So, let’s begin!
Keep Equipment Ready
Before the snow season begins, make sure that every single part and component of a snow blower is working as it should. However, if there are any issues with your snow blower, then the best bet would be to hire a professional mechanic engineer. Basically, do whatever you need to do in order to ensure that it is ready to go as soon as possible.
Communicate With Your Customers
In order to completely understand your customer’s expectations and preferences, you need to work with them. Some customers may even ask you to clear sidewalks, curbs, and basically any other areas that are used for pedestrian traffic.
Knowing this before the snow season hits can be of a big advantage for you because it makes it easier to plan for the right personnel and equipment. It can also make it easier for you to determine which customers will require additional resources and time.
Scoping Out the Obstacles
It is always a good idea to take some time to pinpoint any obstacles that there might be on your customer’s property. Doing this can save you a lot of time, and prevent any accidents that could otherwise occur as well.
If multiple people decide to clear a certain property together, then it would be best to divide it into sections. By doing this, each person gets to completely focus on one specific area, which leads to saving a lot of time.
Cut Down on Salt
Salting can sometimes cost you more money than you are willing to spend. Using a pusher is almost as effective as salting, and it is a less expensive solution as well. There are also some special pushers that can remove even a hard-packed snow, which automatically reduces the need to salt. In addition to all of this, because of the design of these pushers, not many passes are required in order to completely clean the area.
Planning ahead is always a great idea because it makes the success come easier. Evaluating the plan, equipment, and the overall operation ensures the success that contractors chase all year long.
