10 Step Guide to Hiring the Best Michigan Commercial Snow Removal Services

A snow removal company’s ability to operate during the winter months in Michigan hinges upon an efficient snow removal process. Failure to properly clear your commercial property of snow and ice can cause declines in productivity, injuries, and even lawsuits. Business owners should recognize that not all snow removal services are created equal. We encourage you to utilize care when choosing your Michigan snow removal services. Below are 10 ways to ensure that you hire the best commercial snow removal service for Grand Rapids and Lansing, Michigan.

1) 24 Hour Service

Winter storms are often unpredictable. Heavy snowfall can occur on holidays, weekends, and outside of standard 9 to 5 business hours. The best snow removal services should be accessible anytime with easy and fast communication 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

2) Decades of Experience

Well-established snow removal companies possess a level of expertise that is often missing in startups or from landscaping companies that just have extra trucks to use in winter. Look for snow removal companies that have been in the Grand Rapids market for 10 or 20 years. They will have the tools and experience required to quickly assess your needs, provide an accurate quotation, and complete a project swiftly.

3) A Professional Team

The best snow removal companies select their employees carefully and reward them for their efforts and enthusiasm. Training, safety, and customer service are top priorities, and employees should be carefully screened to ensure competency and professionalism. Also ask about ongoing training and certifications.

4) State of the Art Equipment

Well-trained snow removal technicians are powerless without the tools required to successfully remove snow in every situation and weather condition. The best snow removal companies have various tools and equipment for handling a variety of snow and ice types.

5) ISO 9001 / SN 9001 Certification

Snow removal companies that are ISO 9001 and SN 9001 certified survived a rigorous evaluation by an experienced team of auditors. As a result, they are certified as compliant with the top snow industry standards. ISO certification requires a commitment to continuous quality improvement and dedication to maintaining detailed documentation that can be helpful to a business if an employee slips and falls.

6) Stellar References

Snow removal companies should be able to quickly produce a list of satisfied customers in your area. If possible, request references of companies from your industry. An unwillingness to provide a reference list may be a red flag and is due cause to consider other companies.

7) A Focus on the Surrounding Environment

Leaders in the snow removal industry do more than just clear the snow from your parking lot and sidewalks. They provide snow relocation services to help prevent high piles of snow from accumulating and damaging property or obstructing visibility. If you have a large scale project, look for a snow removal company that will relocate piles of snow to a safe location on your property or relocate snow piles to a completely different location.

8) Ability to Handle Projects of All Types and Sizes

Scalability and versatility are critical in the snow removal industry. A snow removal provider should have the resources to help a customer, regardless of size or scope.

9) Deicing and Additional Services Upon Request

Many winter storms produce more than heavy snowfall. They can lead to the accumulation of ice and freezing rain on parking lots, driveways, and sidewalks. When comparing commercial snow removal companies, be sure to ask about the availability of deicing services and snow relocation support. Also ask what types of deicing are available and how it's customized.

10) A Commitment to Excellence

The best snow removal service providers create a work culture of excellence. Their employees display a strong work ethic and operate with integrity and a desire to maintain high standards. Outstanding customer service is just as important as efficient snow removal.

  • Office Building Park in Forest Hills, MI
    As a manager of medical/office buildings, we need a snow removal company who will keep our sidewalks and lots safe for our tenants and their clients. Sneller has done a great job providing this for us. They have drastically lowered the number of tenant calls. They are easy to communicate with and work hard to resolve any issues that may come up.

  •  Rick - Retail Center in Kentwood, MI
    Working with Sneller Snow & Grounds has made my life stress-free when it comes to snow and ice management on our property. They are easy to get a hold of and they have a quick response time when they are needed. Last year we didn’t have any of our tenants call to complain about them, or the work they have done.

  • Office Building, Kentwood, MI
    If you are looking for a professional snow and ice management company, Sneller is who you want. They helped us have a problem free winter which was such a relief. They have all the benefits of a large company but since they are a family owned business, they give you the attention of a smaller company.
    Office Building, Kentwood, MI
  • Ed - Office Building in Kentwood, MI
    We switched to Sneller Snow & Grounds and have been grateful with our decision. We have a lot of sidewalks around our building and they have done an excellent job keeping up on them through the winter.  We chose to not use our sidewalk heating system after realizing that Sneller was more cost effective and more reliable than our automated heating system was for keeping our sidewalks clean and safe. It is nice to know that not only are our lots safe, but our sidewalks as well.

  • Rhonda - Large Retail Store in Kentwood, MI
    During the blizzard of 2011, they really impressed us. Being within a large mall complex, it made us proud knowing we picked Sneller when our lot was clean and safe for our employees and customers first thing.

  • Packaging Facility in Kentwood, MI
    We enjoy having Sneller for many reasons. I have appreciated how easy it is to get a hold of them and how well they handle our needs.  They have helped me make billing simpler and they make our salt management a breeze.  You don’t find much help like that these days.

  • Jim - Industrial Complex in Kentwood, MI
    I would highly recommend Sneller Snow & Grounds! They have very competitive prices which is refreshing since they have many different proactive options than many other companies. They have a crew tracker program making it easy to see when they have started and finished on our property. They send out emails during snow events, letting me know what their plan is and if they will be coming back through. These two things alone make it much easier for me to keep track of what is going on even while I am away. Using Ice Melt has helped a great deal during the colder months, keeping everything safer and cleaner. They are punctual and do their job effectively. In years past, I have had curb damage due to other plowing companies; this is the first year I didn’t have to fix any curbs thanks to Sneller’s close attention to details. They are a great company and I have appreciated working with them.
    Jim - Industrial Complex in Kentwood, MI

They are proactive and helpful and the kind of service contractor you hope to find.
