Choosing the cheapest snow plow is probably not the best solution. You may be dissatisfied with the frequency and quality of your snow plow’s service, with non-existent customer service, and perhaps even pay for not having service after a specific time and no response to your requests. On the other hand, you can also make a wise and informed choice and avoid these inconveniences.
To help you see more clearly and simplify your choice, here are the essential points to take into consideration, as well as several pitfalls to avoid.
Important Points To Consider
To determine which snow plow is best for you, you need to start by establishing your priorities.
Frequency Of Snow Removal
Service frequency refers to the number of passes your snow plow will make during each storm. The closer a snowplow has customers to each other, the more frequent the passages will be.
Time Of First Snow Removal
Determine the guaranteed first pass time that best suits your early morning departure, then choose a snowplow that guarantees you to pass for the first time before that time. Make sure it is included in your contract as a guarantee.
Cleanliness Of The Snow Removal Service
To do a clean job, your snowplow must have several types of equipment configurations suited to your particular need. For example, using an extendable scraper equipped with Teflon knives promotes cleaning that will not damage the coating of your driveway. Also, the use of a blower tractor makes it possible to pile up snow in the appropriate places without damaging your land or causing breakage to your street furniture.
Duration Of Your Snow Removal Contract
To ensure you never touch a winter shovel, make sure the contract start and end dates cover the entire winter season. For several years, it is not uncommon to see snow in April. Also, find out what will happen if it snows outside of these dates.
Minimum Accumulation Required To Clear Snow
The best reference for the minimum accumulation required before a snow removal operation is your municipality. Also, make sure that the snowplow does not wait for the end of the precipitation to pass only once.
A snowplow must have sufficient office staff to answer your calls during and after precipitation to provide good customer service.
Is the overall quality of service offered worth the price charged by the snow removal company for earth development? What are you willing to sacrifice to pay a few dollars less? Peace of mind comes at a price. The savings made will undoubtedly be felt by a lack of service, whether in terms of the frequency or quality of snow removal, customer service, or even when the time comes to repair any damage that may occur during snow removal.
