The weather has cooled way down after a hot summer and start to autumn. Breezy conditions, sweaters, and preparation for snow season are in the air.
Snow contractors always need to worry about salt orders, equipment purchases and hiring months before the flakes start flying. Important steps to improve snow and ice companies should be done before the heavy snow hits.
SIMA and the Accredited Snow Contractor Association (ASCA) strongly suggest having a weather forecasting service at your disposal. An accurate snow forecast from a professional weather company like Neoweather could mean the difference of saving several hundred dollars on ONE decision.
Example: Your weather apps say the snow starts at 1am, so you wake your crews up early and have them sit in the truck for two hours until the snow actually starts.
Savvy snow removal managers know it’s important to cultivate a relationship with service providers. The time to purchase from a weather consulting company is right now. No need to wait until it’s ready to snow.
Just like your commercial accounts need time to set up, it’s similar with a weather company.
Weather companies work off a similar winter contract schedule just like snow contractors.
Accurate weather information is vital in mitigating winter risk. If snow companies have an accurate forecast they can better attack the storm. This should lead to a cleaner property and less slip and falls, plus complaints from the customer.
