Tips for Snow Plow Removal Businesses
Remembering these six items can save your snow removal business a lot of time, effort, and money.
- Make sure your business is documenting everything. Inform your crews that they need to document the date and time they plowed and what specific areas they worked on. This will not only help you keep records of all your jobs, but help you keep your liability down.
- Make sure you're doing everything your contract says that you will do. Schedule your crews for a reasonable amount of work and make sure you have the equipment you need to do all the work you agreed upon.
- Train your crews on know how to use the equipment properly. This will help prevent any liability issues, as well as prevent any equipment from being broken or damaged.
- Pay attention to the weather and any storm warnings. This will help you make sure you have your crews and equipment ready for when the snow hits the ground.
- Communicate with both your clients and your crew. If something comes up and you can't make it to a client at the agreed time, it's important to communicate this with them.
- Try to plan routes so that your crews spend more time plowing than driving. If you're looking to gain new commercial client's, reach out in the late summer or by early fall.
