Are You Betting Your Business on Colorado’s Weather?
Posted on December 22, 2010 by A Touch of Class
One of the most interesting things about living in or around the mile high city is that you never can be quite sure about the weather. This is especially true in the winter, when the days can range from incredibly mild to unexpectedly vicious. We live in a part of the country where 60’s and sun can be followed by a white-out blizzard that dumps two feet of snow from the mountains on east.
Do you really want to bet your businesses revenue on Colorado’s weather?
Lots of business owners do just that. Thinking they’ll get by with the one or two bad days they think may be coming, they decide to pass on professional snow removal services, or sign a contract with the cheapest snow removal company and hope things will turn out for the best. But as years of experience in the professional snow removal service industry has taught us, that’s not a good strategy. Here’s why…
The snow season isn’t predictable…but the bottom-line consequences are:
If you aren’t open, your business is not making money
You’ll earn a lot more per hour serving your customers then you will shoveling snow
When you figure in maintenance costs, fuel, and the time it takes to operate one, a personal snow blower usually ends up being a lot more expensive than a professional snow plow
Having the snow and ice removed from your parking lot or commercial property professionally saves you on wear and tear on your property, maintenance, liability, and damage costs
If you fall or hurt yourself while clearing snow and ice, your business is likely to suffer
For these reasons it doesn’t make a lot of sense to bet your company’s profits on Colorado’s weather. Do yourself a favor and opt for a professional snow and ice remover like us – whether it snows a lot or a little, your bottom-line will be protected.

Why Office Building Managers Fear the Forecast…And How You Can Stop Worrying About Snow and Ice Removal
Posted on December 20, 2010 by A Touch of Class
Few things make office building managers in Colorado cringe like the thought of several inches of snow and ice falling overnight. Not only might their buildings have to be closed, but there could be missed deliveries, damage to autos, or even injuries to tenants and employees trying to make their way into work.
Snow in Denver is almost enough to make you want to move to Arizona…
Alright, maybe things aren’t quite that bad, but harsh winter weather is a big problem for office building managers throughout Denver and the Front Range. Snow covered buildings and parking lots mean lost money, more complaints, and major hassles.
Stop worrying about ice and snow removal
If you guessed that we were going to suggest a professional snow and ice removal company in Denver as the answer to your problems, you’re only half right. The trick isn’t in contracting with a snow removal service, but choosing the right one.
A few things to look for in a Denver snow removal company:
Service that begins early in the morning and runs all day
Affordable pricing and flexible contracts
Locations and service throughout the Denver area, including Arvada, Aurora, Lakewood, DTC, Littleton, and Englewood
Reliable equipment – especially snow plows and trucks
Fast, friendly service
Insurance that covers liability and potential damages
The difference between having snow removal professionals that meet these criteria and ones that don’t can mean days of lost work and income. That’s why it’s so important, if you own or manage an office building in Colorado, that you have a snow and ice removal company you can count on. Once you do, you can stop fearing the forecast and dream of beautiful white Denver winters.

4 Ways to Save Money on Commercial Snow Removal Service Pricing in Denver
Posted on December 13, 2010 by A Touch of Class
If there is one thing nearly every retail or commercial snow removal service customer in the world can agree on, it’s that they would all like to save a little bit of money. After all, a Colorado blizzard can feel like a bit of bad luck (and unexpected expense) for Denver area businesses, so wouldn’t it be nice to get just a little bit of that back?
When it comes to saving money on professional snow removal services, however, there are good ways and bad ways to go about it. What we don’t recommend is that you simply choose the lowest bid right off the bat: there’s just too much chance you’ll end up with someone unreliable who will cost you more money in the long run. What you might try, though, are a few of the tips below…
Get an agreement in place before you need commercial snow removal.
As with any other area of life or business, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Get together with a professional snow and ice removal company, like ours, before the white stuff starts coming down. You won’t just save on rates, you’ll get faster service too!
Get a snow removal contract for all your locations.
If you’re working with a vendor who has the right equipment and locations, you could have one team clear all of your commercial or retail locations, not only in Denver but is far away as Aurora, Lakewood, Littleton, Englewood, DTC, Arvada, and beyond while getting a better rate in the process.
Build contingencies into your snow removal agreement.
A lot of snow removal bids seem extremely competitive… right up until it snows for the third, fifth, or tenth time. It’s usually more efficient and inexpensive to get a rate on “excess” snow and ice removal up front, than it is to need it later.
Look at the big picture of snow removal.
Part of the “cost” of a professional snow removal service is the missed hours in revenue your business is going to suffer if they don’t show up on time. Take that into account and select a professional snow removal company in Denver that you can trust.

Will Denver’s Next Blizzard White Out Your Strip Mall’s Profits?
Posted on December 8, 2010 by A Touch of Class
Strip malls, almost more than any other business, rely on car accessibility and foot traffic to keep their tenants and shoppers happy. So it shouldn’t be any surprise that some of our most panicked phone calls come from strip mall managers who see trouble brewing in the snow forecast…or wish they had several hours ago.
How a snowstorm can plow away strip mall profits
We can understand their concern. When the white stuff starts coming down, strip malls lose money in a variety of ways if they don’t have a professional snow removal service in place, including:
A decrease in shoppers and traffic
Businesses that can’t open, or stay open
A poor public impression of the facility and businesses
Missed productivity from employees who can’t park their cars
Complaints from tenants
Injuries from slips and falls
Liability for auto accidents and other mishaps
In other words, having snow and ice at your strip mall – and especially in the parking lots and sidewalks – is a big deal. So why risk any of these problems?
A professional snow removal company is the answer for Denver’s strip mall owners and managers
Most strip malls already contract a professional snow and ice removal company, but they fail to take the extra few minutes to be sure that the pricing, contracts, and especially reliability are as strong as they should be. And so, they end up with vendors who show up late, have unreliable snowplows, and create other problems that can lead to all sorts of headaches and lost revenue.
Your strip mall has to be open and accessible to make money, regardless of how much snow on ice is on the ground. Remember that, and choose a professional snow removal company that gives you top notch service and pricing, not just an empty guarantee.

Put Away That Snow Shovel! 5 Reasons Not to Be Your Own Snow Removal Service
Posted on December 1, 2010 by A Touch of Class
Occasionally, while driving our snow removal trucks and plows on the way to an office building or commercial parking lot, we’ll see some poor unfortunate business owner or facility manager out there shoveling his or her own space.
We suppose they’re just looking to save a little bit of money on snow and ice removal, but why anyone would decide to do this for their own driveway and sidewalk, much less a commercial property, is beyond us.
Here are five really great reasons not to be your own snow removal service:
1. You don’t have the right snow and ice removal equipment.
Just as there are a lot of tools that make the work in your business or industry go faster, we’ve got a lot of plows and equipment at our disposal that put your snow shovel or personal snow blower to shame. It’s easier when you have the right tools, so let us use them.
2. You should be serving your customers, not shoveling snow.
Freezing your hands and feet in the cold isn’t exactly what most owners or managers would consider a “high profit” activity. Given what you are worth to your business or facility per hour, it’s probably a lot cheaper to hire professional snow removal help.
3. Scraping ice off of sidewalks doesn’t make a great impression on customers
Shoppers and clients want to see you hard at work lowering prices or coming up with answers to their problems, not struggling to pour salt on a patch of parking lot. Leave the struggle to us, and improve your professional image.
4. Shoveling snow can be dangerous.
This is a factor lots of business owners and managers overlook, but it’s a fact that tens of thousands of Americans injure themselves, and occasionally even suffer heart attacks, while trying to clear patches of snow. Is it really worth it when a professional snow removal service can handle it quickly, inexpensively, and without the risk?
With health insurance premiums and potential for workers comp claims, the cost of hiring a snow removal company is minimal. We are fully insured and are not your employees – let us shoulder the risk and you reap the reward.
5. Professional snow removal services are convenient.
At the end of the day, there are a lot of things you could do for yourself, like figuring out your taxes or pulling your own teeth. But why? All it takes is one phone call to have snow plow truck show up and clear your parking lot or commercial space – probably before you even get out of bed.
There’s no good reason to be your own snow removal service, so why bother with all the stress and hassle?

Aren’t All Denver Snow Shoveling Services the Same?
Posted on November 27, 2010 by A Touch of Class
Q: Does it matter who we choose for our snow removal?
This is a question we get from time to time, usually from a business owner or strip mall manager who feels buried under their own personal blizzard of flyers from companies with trucks, plows, blowers, and shovels. Does it really matter, they ask, which one you choose?
A: Yes, if you want your snow removed on-time and cost-effectively!
Whether they decide to do business with us or not, we always try to make sure they know it does matter… probably a lot more than they would think.
Here are just a few of the differences between the professional snow and ice removal services around Denver:
Different snow removal pricing.
Obviously, different snow removal companies charge different rates for what they do. Competition ensures that we are all going to be fairly close, but it’s worth peeking into the fine print to make sure you’ll be getting what you expect from your snowplow company.
Different locations in and around Denver
While some only serve the Denver metro area, others will go out as far as far as Aurora, Lakewood, Littleton, Englewood, or even Arvada – or somewhere in between. If you have different locations, or just want faster snow removal service, pay attention to your vendor’s geographic base. We provide snow removal services throughout the entire Denver metro area.
Snow plow & snow equipment maintenance
This might sound like something you wouldn’t spend a lot of time worrying about, and in truth, you probably won’t. But, it makes sense to be sure you’re choosing a company with relatively new snow removal equipment, especially their trucks and plows. The last thing you want to hear, on the morning of a blizzard, is that they have broken down and can’t make it to your office building or grocery store parking lot for a couple of days. We keep our machinery maintained throughout the winter and during the off-season so you know we’ll be there.
Snow removal timing and efficiency
This is another area where you don’t want to save a dollar and have it end up costing you twenty. A good professional snow removal service will make it to your office or commercial location before you do, so check a couple of references and make sure your company has a reputation for timeliness.
Snow removal contracts
At the end of the day, there is always the fine print. Take the time to read your snow removal agreement and be sure there aren’t any unexpected costs or clauses – you will be glad you did later.

Denver Professional Snow Removal – 3 Items to Consider When Comparing Bids
Posted on November 19, 2010 by A Touch of Class
Getting rid of the snow and ice that comes down every year in the Denver metro area is a huge challenge for business owners, property managers, and office building supervisors, but one that they don’t always put a lot of time into. Most just go with the company that offers the lowest bids, or for the really unlucky few, try to shovel or plow it themselves.
But given that you’re counting on your snow removal method to keep employees and customers safe – and your business operating – doesn’t it make sense to look beyond the figure at the bottom? Here are three details to pay attention to as you look through different bids:
Snow removal pricing.
Obviously, the first thing you want to look at is the overall price. Don’t just stop at the biggest number, however. Make sure you know whether you are paying by the hour, the inch, the square foot of your parking lot or facility, or some other measurement.
Time and service guarantees.
The best, or cheapest, snow and ice removal doesn’t do a lot for you if the professional shows up with his plow four hours late. Money is money, but so is time – make sure what you’re paying for can help you get more of both.
The fine print in your snow and ice removal agreement.
A lot of snow removal companies like to brag about how low their prices are, how their snow removal contracts are flexible, and the hours you’ll save by not shoveling on your own. What they don’t tell you is you’ll be paying extra if it snows more than you anticipated, on a weekend, or in any other way that inconveniences them. Don’t forget to peek at the fine print in your snow and ice removal agreement… there could be a few clauses that are as unpredictable as the weather.
You don’t have to spend a lot of time or money arranging a professional snow removal service, but it does pay to get past simple bids and dig into the details.

When You See Snow in the Forecast, Do You Start Counting Inches or Dollars?
Posted on November 13, 2010 by A Touch of Class
As anyone who manages a business or office building in Denver can tell you, snow doesn’t always look as beautiful as it does in pictures once it falls on your parking lot. From the moment the first flakes and patches of ice show up, you’ve got late workers, missing shoppers, and all kinds of potential injury risks to deal with… and that’s to say nothing of actually shoveling or plowing.

That’s why, as an owner, supervisor, or facility manager, having a professional snow removal service that’s quick and affordable can save you a ton of cash in the long run. Just consider a few of the benefits:
What professional snowplow companies can do for you:
Take away dangerous snow and ice
Clear sidewalks and parking lots quickly and inexpensively
Show customers your office, commercial lot, or strip mall is open for business
Save you time you would have been spent shoveling, plowing, or operating a snow blower
Reduce facility maintenance costs
… and a lot more.

If you have been dealing with Denver winters by yourself, try a professional snow removal service and see the difference in just a couple of weeks. It’s quick, easy, and only takes a phone call to set up. And besides, snow removal pricing is probably a lot lower than you would think.
If you’re going to do business in Denver, or even in the surrounding Aurora, Lakewood, and DTC areas, professional snow removal isn’t something you should consider going without. It’s easy and affordable, and lets you focus on other things that matter… like running your business.
