Commercial Snow Removal Contracts
The best commercial snow removal contract for you will probably be different than someone else. Not every site will need the same level of services. An HOA with busy foot traffic would require an entirely different level of service than a corporate office. One corporate office to another could vary greatly. Even a single corporate office may require a different level of service in some areas than others.
Each contract is completely customizable to ensured your scope of work is met. Within the different snow removal contracts you will personalize what level of service you would like to receive. Our levels go Tier 1 (most comprehensive), Tier 2, Tier 3, Specialized, Micro, or a Combination of these.
We offer 5 types of snow removal billing contracts:
Labor + Material
Some items that would be defined in (LOS) the level of service expectations would be:
- Service initiation – At what point of a snow or ice event would services start. This includes pre-
event services such as sidewalks treated with calcium chloride before the initial snow or ice fall,
liquid calcium chloride, sodium chloride or magnesium chloride may be used on streets and in
commercial lots to minimize snow accumulation and prevent ice from adhering to the road.
- A snow or ice event is any forecasted weather system that could produce any type of
precipitation or combination of snow, hail, sleet or freezing rain. An ice event could
occur after a forecasted rain overnight rainstorm combined with cold morning
temperatures. This is where a clearly defined LOS expectation is important. If you are
new to snow and ice contracts or even a seasoned vet, these details could be missed,
leaving your company vulnerable to injury lawsuits resulting from the lack of deicing
lots, sidewalks, bus stops, and etc.
- Timeframe for completion – LOS timeframes are very important. A supermarket may require
that sidewalks, the main aisle in front and rear of the lot and one aisle leading directly to an
entrance be always maintained. An HOA may require sidewalks be cleared and treated before
7AM when homeowners are starting their day. These are referred to as Level 1 service
priorities. The remaining main lot for the supermarket may be set at Level 2 priority and the
rear lot behind the supermarket a Level 4 or 5 priority level.
- Who will determine service initiation? This is important because the liability for injury lies with
the decision maker from the time a snow event starts and the initiation for service begins.
There are two options. The service manager or company designee responsible snow
maintenance or the contractor. Managers often opt to manage this themselves to maintain
budgets. Others will provide the authority to their contractor with a list of criteria that would
need to be met in order to initiate services. In either case, open communication and dialogue
are always necessary.
- Try to determine the most important areas to be set at Level 1 priority based on normal foot
traffic. A site map clearly identifying the levels of priority will be provided as part of your
- Do I have space for salt storage on my site? Local salt storage for large properties ensures
makes it easy for your contractor meet the level of maintenance that is expected, especially is
snow and ice events with high snow accumulations in short time frames.
- If your facility is secured with locked gates, gate operators or other security features, how will
access be granted.
- In large snow events, the need to stack snow will be required. Determine the best location for
snow stacking. Do you need stacked snow to be removed from the site?
- Who will be responsible for snow stakes? Snow stakes are used to define area that cannot be plowed. These areas are marked
clearly for the contractor and include medians within a lot, grass covered areas that run
along a lot and any other area that when snow covered would be invisible to the plow
driver and could be damaged by the plow.
- Materials to be used – Every customer has a unique set of factors. If you are not familiar with
the products that are available for pre and post snow and ice events or what may or may not be
important to the end user, Paramount Fencing Inc. is here to assist. Here are a few things to
