Questions to ask before hiring a snow removal contractor

Owning or managing a commercial or residential property is a serious responsibility, and minimizing risk during winter months should always be a top priority. Ontario winters can be harsh, and because snowstorms can pop up in late April or even May, it is essential to have a dependable, committed contractor to take care of your property no matter when the snow hits.

Knowing the right questions to ask can make finding the right contractor easier. We have put a list of questions to ask when looking at contractors so that you can make the best decision for your property.

  • Is your company licensed and  insured? What are your certifications?
  • What types of service contracts do you offer? How are the costs calculated?
  • Does your company provide other services during the spring/summer months such as landscaping and grounds management? Can you be a single-source provider for year-round service?
  • Will you provide a reference list of current clients to get their feedback on your services?
  • What types of equipment do you use for commercial snow and ice management?
  •  What is your typical response time during a snow event?
  • Who will I be in contact with and how will I stay updated
  • After plowing, where will you pile the snow on our property? Can you haul the snow away if necessary?
