What to Expect from a Commercial Snow Removal Property Evaluation
Curious about how a property evaluation for commercial snow removal works? Whether you’re thinking about switching providers or looking to partner with a commercial snow removal expert for the first time, we’ve got you covered on how the whole process goes down.
Here is what you can expect from a property evaluation:
Your commercial snow removal company will visit your location to complete a thorough evaluation of your property. From steps, sidewalks, loading docks and handicap ramps to parking spots, entrances, fire exits and more, a member of the Sauers sales team will take note of all the unique features of your property.
This way, they can plan to service your location in adherence to code and in a way that ensures your business runs smoothly shortly after a storm. Plus, they’ll find out where to push piles of snow without, for example, blocking fire hydrants, eliminating too many parking spaces or barricading an entrance or exit of your building.
Identify Your Needs
While the walk-through gives your snow removal company a solid understanding of where to clear snow and ice, a brief discussion will help them understand the type of foot traffic that occurs daily on your property. It also gives your account manager an overview of your industry and the business itself, so they can put together a comprehensive plan to meet your needs.
The hours you operate play an important role as well. Your provider will want to know what time you open and close, or if you stay open 24/7. We want to know if you have patients or industrial needs that require a zero-tolerance snow plan. Little details like these will go a long way.
A Customized Site-Plan
Finally, once your snow removal property evaluation is complete, Sauers will create a detailed customized site-plan. This outline will describe how the crew will address the challenges that you face, including the areas they plan to clear and where they’ll be spreading salt. You don’t want any surprises and neither do they.
This plan will also detail when your company will start, what they’ll be doing, where they’ll be doing it, and when they’ll be finished. Plus, a company like Sauers will give you access to their snow removal technology app as well, making it easy to get notifications. As a proactive approach, the customized site-plan will help prevent slip and fall injuries, offer your insurance provider and legal team a written snow response plan, and get your business back up and running again as quickly as possible.
