We know. Winter 2016 is barely over. You don’t want to think about Winter 2017 in Grand Rapids or Lansing MI, you want to think about summer! But here at Sneller Snow & Grounds, we think about snow removal 24/7/365 so please don’t judge us too harshly! It’s seriously never too early to start preparing for winter. There is so much to consider, repair, compare and budget for in our region! So here are some tips to get you on the right path:
Look for the Best Snow Removal Service in Michigan
If you don’t already have a snow removal company, you should start researching what’s available in your area now. No two companies are the same and you should completely understand the details surrounding their services and their qualifications and certifications so you can trust that you are in good hands.
You might ask or look into what they do all summer. Are they a landscaping company first and foremost that is simply using their trucks in the winter for plowing? That might work for residential snow removal on a budget, but if you want proper risk management and efficient snow removal for your business, look for a company that focuses on snow systems year round to find the very best and ask some detailed questions like:
- What are they doing to insure that they’ll be ready to go when the weather is at its worst?
- Do they have adequate supplies?
- How are the drivers trained?
- Are they maintaining a fleet large enough to cover the demand when it’s needed?
- Are their routes well-thought-out?
- Do they offer any emergency services?
- Are they fully licensed? What happens if something is damaged or someone is hurt?
- Are they certified? What does that mean for me?
- Why do they think they are the best???
When an unexpected storm hits or the arctic front pushes a little further than predicted, it’s too late to find out the details. You’ll need a snow removal company that’s been spending its off-season wisely. If you need Lansing or Grand Rapids commercial snow removal services, contact us at Sneller Snow & Grounds today.
