Three Questions to Ask When Hiring a Snow Removal Service

October, 12, 2020 By CASSIDY PAVING 6 min read
Temperatures are falling across Massachusetts and there’s no time like right now to find a snow removal service that works for your needs. Cassidy Paving’s goal is to educate you on how snow removal services like ours are here to help regardless of how bad the snowstorms become. Don’t wait until the first snowfall to search for a contractor. With a little investigation and the right questions, you will find the best fit for your property and budget. Here are some questions to ask when you start researching snow removal companies.

Question #1: What Services Do You Provide?

Regardless of the size of your property, there is not a one size fits all approach to removing snow. Additionally, not all companies use the same type of salt or de-icers. Some contractors may use sand in their snow removal process, but that only provides traction and doesn't help melt ice which can lead to hazards. When permissible, Cassidy Paving uses 100% salt, which melts ice and adds traction. Not only will you feel more confident driving in the winter, but you will save time and money come springtime when you don't have to clean up the leftover snow-removal residue, such as sand, on your asphalt. Not all companies have scalable contracts like Cassidy Paving in place. With a scalable contract, you can ensure that you aren’t paying for things you don’t need like sand supplies and the removal of such traction-makers and ice melters afterward. Our crew will walk every inch of your property marking curbs, fire hydrants, fixed hazards and most importantly mapping out traffic patterns to make sure your sites stay operational no matter how fast the snow falls.

Question #2: What Equipment Do You Use?

This is another question that is important to determine prior to having a service come out to your property. The best contractors have a fleet of various equipment. The reason for this is that it cuts down on wait time during even the busiest times of the year. Cassidy Paving has an extensive fleet, both owned and subbed, that include pushers, blowers, and buckets. It is important to find a service that has an appropriately sized fleet to account for you and your needs while being readily available, especially during Massachusetts winters.

Question #3: How Quick Are Your Services?

When a snowstorm hits the area we understand that time is critical. Especially if you are a business owner, the minutes that operations are down due to snow are minutes that you are losing money. This is an important question to ask in order to determine how well a snow removal company will fit your needs. When you call a company, chances are that you’re not the only one on their to-do list. This is typical, and the way that they handle their client list is critical to your operations. To help combat a long wait, we have staff on call every day of the year, 24 hours a day. We also keep fuel and salt stockpiled so that you never have to wait for us to get our supplies before your service. Invoices are also sent in a timely manner with our 48-hour invoicing system after service.
