Don’t wait


People make one big mistake when they are looking for snow and ice management partner or when they want to switch from one partner to the other. Thinking that there’s enough time to do that is the worst thing you can ever do. The best practice is to start early because you will have enough time to vet different providers, develop a transition plan in case you want to switch partners. You will also have enough time to work with your provider to get insights about the scope and the budget for all the services you need.

Your needs and those of the business

The other practice is to determine your needs and those of the business. The fact is the quality of services you will get from a service provider will be directly determined by how better he/she understands your needs.  Check to see whether the partner you are about to choose is an accurate reflection of the services you require.

Safety and risk management

The other thing to consider is the risk and safety management. The provider you are about to go for should have liability insurance coverage. You should as well determine whether they have a documented safety program. The partner should as well adhere to local and international licensing processes and regulations. The people that will be servicing your premises should as well be certified and possess the right knowledge and experience to offer the services.

Regular communication and Documentation

Before you settle with any snow and Ice management provider, you have to ask about their systems and how to effectively communicate with them. As a matter of fact, communication is what determines the level of reliability between the partner and your needs. The partner you are about to settle for should as well have a subscription to a private weather forecasting service. This will make sure they always have alerts about weather changes.
