Winter in the Bucks County and Montgomery County region of Pennsylvania is known for being especially fierce. Indeed, weather conditions in our region of the state often seem to change on a dime: Heavy snowstorms seem to appear out of nowhere overnight. And along with the powder they dump on our sidewalks, parking lots, homes and roads, we also have potentially dangerous ice conditions to deal with. If you’re a business owner, snowfall and the buildup of ice can lead to lost revenue, absentee employees, and even lawsuits.
Do You Really Need to Have a Ice and Snow Removal Service On Call?
Consider this scenario: It’s a chilly, dark night in mid-January, and you’re up late watching the weather forecast on the evening news. The Monday forecast calls for snow, but not much. A bit more than a dusting, perhaps. A half-inch at the absolute worst. But when you get out of bed the following morning in preparation to open your office, or your boutique, or your restaurant, you see right away that the forecasters got it wrong. The piles of snow outside your bedroom window are thigh-high. And when you open the front door in search of the morning paper, you notice a glistening of ice on the front walk.
Clearly, this is not a situation any business owner wants to face at the start of a new week. If your employees can’t make it through the front door of your business, your productivity will grind to a halt. If clients or customers can’t safely park in your lot, or can’t approach your business’ entrance without being soaked by snow, your revenue will go out the proverbial window. And if a black ice-involved accident happens on your property before you have time to lay down road salt, that could very well spell the end of your business altogether. We’ve seen it happen before.
What’s Wrong With Calling a Service Only When Inclement Weather Arrives?
The plain truth of the matter is that there really is no substitute for having a Bucks County ice and snow removal service on call during the winter months.
Why? Well, if you wait for a snow or ice storm to hit before you call a service, there’s a decent chance that you might not find any available service providers. After all, half your competitors and at least a handful of your neighbors will probably be calling the same companies at the same time, requesting the same services.
And although most ice and snow removal service providers in our area are the absolute picture of professionalism and honesty, you always run the risk of finding yourself gouged on price if you request a particular service at the very moment that the demand for that service is at its highest.
With Realty Landscaping, you can always rely on thorough, fair and accurate pricing. We have more than 25 years of experience, which means that aside from knowing the industry inside and out, we also understand exactly what it takes to get your job done correctly and professionally.
What Factors Will Determine My Rate?
In most instances, the size of the property that needs to be serviced will play the biggest role in determining your ice and snow removal fee. The frequency of snow or ice removal services, of course, will also play a big role–although no matter how much we know about the storms due to come our way this winter, it’s never possible to perfectly guess exactly how many visits your property will ultimately need.
There are any number of other factors that can play a role in the fees you’ll pay for this service: The type of equipment needed for your job, for instance. Any special or unusual products that may be required. The skill level and professionalism of the contractor you hire.
No matter what sort of business you operate or property you manage, however, your best bet would be to contact us today for further details and a quote.
