How Winter Weather and Snow Affects Massachusetts Businesses

October, 23, 2020 By CASSIDY PAVING 6 min read
If you have lived in Massachusetts through a few winters you will understand that this time of the year is truly unlike any other. Being a locally-owned and operated business, Cassidy Paving has an insider view of how winter weather and snow affect businesses in your area. Depending on the industry your business is in, there will be very different action plans for dealing with snow. But there is one commonality, which is safely and effectively removing snow and ice as soon as possible in business parking lots and drives.

Effects on Small Businesses

Small businesses often feel the effects of harsh winter better than any others. Some, though, can thrive off of an extended cold season. As reported by the Boston Business Journal in March 2018, three back-to-back nor’easters cost Massachusetts upwards of $950 million in sales. People cannot partake in their normal buying and selling routines during these times of snow and ice. Extreme storms are not uncommon for this area and they can cause even more distress to small businesses when the roads are impassable and normal business cannot take place from being snowed in. This is especially true for our commercial and industrial customers that rely on well-maintained roads.

Effects on the Paving Industry

For paving contractors that offer commercial snow removal, the wintertime can be a busy time of the year. When the Cassidy Paving crew isn’t busy installing and repairing asphalt pavement we are full-scale snow and ice management contractors. According to Shovler, the private snow removal market in North America is around $22.7 billion with 27% of that share being in the northeast. Not only is this profitable for snow and ice contractors, but we are also supplying our customers with a vital service that will allow them to get back up and running. Our snow and ice removal services play a role in local economies thriving even after the worst nor’easter.

Make a Plan

If you are a business owner, especially a small business owner, the most important thing you can do to maintain a steady workflow during a Massachusetts winter is to have a snow removal plan in place before the first storm hits. Not having a contractor ready will result in loss of productivity, which eventually equates to money lost. We highly recommend doing research on contractors available in your area as early as summer so that you have your plan solidified by the first snowfall. You will also want to have your particular contractual agreement signed and contact numbers readily available to reach your snow removal company as soon as you need them.
