As the owner or operator of a business or public facility in New Jersey or New York, you likely know what a devastating impact snow and ice can have on your business. In addition to increasing the risk of injury for employees and visitors, snow and ice can be a hindrance to prospective customers who cannot access your establishment. Below are four ways a commercial snow removal service will address these concerns and benefit your business.
When a snow storm hits, the snow must be cleared quickly so customers and employees can safely access the parking lot, steps, and walkways. Just one slip on a snow-filled icy sidewalk can send a lot of messy (and expensive) liability issues your way. Although it may be tempting to tackle snow removal on your own, it’s wise to consider a snow removal service. Here’s why:
1) Help you enjoy peace of mind
Wake up the morning after an overnight snow storm calm and relaxed knowing your property will be cleared of snow and ice in a prompt and professional way when you arrive.
A commercial snow removal company is always prepared to make sure your business can stay fully operational even during the harshest of winters.
Professional snow removal sends a message to your employees and customers that you care about the safety and well-being of your workers and guests. Additionally, you can transform your property’s exterior and create a clear, inviting path through the snow for your employees and visitors. Your curb appeal is quickly enhanced, and you gain an edge over your competitors.
2) Remove snow with the latest cutting-edge tools
Some business owners attempt to remove snow on their own. However, the results are rarely satisfactory, and the snow removal is often incomplete. A professional snow removal company, on the other hand, will arrive at your business with the latest cutting-edge snow removal tools to ensure that your property is thoroughly cleared of snow and ice:
- Snow blowers
- Angle plows
- Mini track loaders
- Snow scrapers
- Snow buckets
Proper equipment and experienced staff know how to handle your snow safely, quickly and efficiently. You don’t have to worry about buying any of your own equipment, we take care of it all. Rest assured knowing the plowing will be done correctly, and won’t cause any surface damage to your property.
3) Help prevent premises liability
Professional commercial snow removal services reduce risk and liability related to snow and ice accidents. Lawsuits against businesses are at an all-time high.
Reducing insurance liability keeps your business “in the clear” of any expensive lawsuits you may otherwise encounter if you do not properly clear your property. Safety is a top priority.
As a business owner, you are responsible for protecting the well-being of the people who frequent your property. Allowing snow and ice to accumulate on your sidewalk or parking lot can lead to slips, falls, and other injuries. A professional snow removal company will remove the snow and ice from your property to help you avoid the premises liability that could result if an employee or visitor is injured due to the buildup of snow and ice on your property.
4) Enjoy cost savings
Virtually any business owner who has attempted to remove heavy snow or stubborn ice will agree that professional snow removal actually helps a business save money. As a business owner, you are eligible for comprehensive snow removal packages that feature the following pricing options:
- Seasonal packages
- Hourly rates
- Customizable pricing
Pricing comes in affordable snow management packages. Comprehensive packages range from seasonal, per inch, or per hour for one site or many sites. Pricing is set based on your company’s needs and is completely customizable. Most commercial properties that have tried to handle their own snow removal in the past find that it is cheaper to hire professionals rather than spend money on the upkeep of buying your own equipment, salt, shovels, etc.
In addition to these convenient pricing options, you may also be eligible for a package discount if you have multiple locations or facilities to clear.
