If you own a business here in Bergen County, chances are you’ll need commercial snow removal several times during the course of the winter. So what should you do before you hire a snow removal service?
Here are a few things for you to consider in order to choose precisely the right one for your northern New Jersey company.
The first step to take when looking for a commercial snow removal service is to do plenty of online research. Enter the name of a particular company in different search engines in order to find out what others are saying about them.
Visit the company’s official website to see before and after pictures of their work, as well as the type of equipment they have. The quality of the website will tell you a great deal about the company, as reputable ones won’t be shy about giving you as much information as possible on their home page.
Once you are satisfied with a company’s website, talk with their customer service representatives in person. In doing so, you’ll have a better idea as to the type of service you can expect after hiring them.
If their representatives are friendly and eager to answer questions, you can be certain that your needs will be taken seriously. Should employees seem unwilling to talk to you, chances are that you may never get an opportunity to discuss your wishes with them when it’s time to actually have snow and ice removed from your business.
Look for companies that go the extra mile in providing commercial snow plowing and removal. Ask whether or not they will inspect your site the day after a storm or whenever there has been a melt and refreeze. You should also find out how proactive a company might be in predicting storms, as this will give you an idea as to how long you might have to wait for service after a heavy snowfall. Find out whether they monitor local weather reports and the type of data they have access to, so you will know whether or not they will be able to respond quickly.
Ask for an initial visit to your site to discuss commercial snow removal. During this visit, identify the areas that need to be cleaned, and find out what methods of snow removal will be used for each one. Be sure the contractor knows what your hours of operation are so that your sidewalks can be cleared before you open for business whenever possible.
