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.
