When a property manager contacts us, we do a thorough onsite inspection to identify the needs of the site. The parking lot, sidewalks, landscape, medians, and snow pile zones are a few parts of a property we keep an eye out for. We work all day and all night during a snowfall and we are available 24/7 for your site’s snow removal needs.

Liability is typically a large concern of our clients. As a place of business, people visiting their building need to be able to safely walk from their car to the front door. We focus on making your parking lot and entrances as safe as possible for your valued customers and employees. We have a team of experienced operators and a full suite of state of the art equipment including skid-steers, plow trucks, sweepers, shovels, salt spreaders, and truck sanders.

How the service works is that we put together a monthly or per time contract based on your property’s requirements. This contract makes sure that all details of the service are clear and that a trigger is determined. Most of the time, our triggers are 5 cm for snow plowing and 1 cm for snow shoveling. We will also discuss if your site requires snow removal services during the day or during the night when the parking lots are mostly empty. We always do our best to make sure your site is cleared for when it needs to be. After each service, we use detailed notes and time-stamped pictures to record the work performed and compile it into a report which we share with our clients on a monthly or as-needed basis. These reports keep our operations transparent and are an act of due diligence in the case of a slip and fall event.

​Frequently Asked Questions

What type of snowplows do you use?

We believe the best work quality requires the best equipment for the job. Every year, we do a thorough assessment of our current equipment and do plenty of research to decide which machines we will purchase for the upcoming season. Our current list of equipment is expanding and to date includes:

  • Four 3/4 ton trucks
  • Three 2018+ Western wide out plows
  • One half-ton truck
  • Two CASE skid-steer loaders + attachments
  • Shoveling equipment including shovels, ice chippers, sweepers and backpack blowers

Once it starts snowing, when do you come out?

Snow removal typically takes place within 12 hours of cessation of the snow. If your property’s trigger is 4 cm, and up until this moment it has snowed only 3 cm but it is continuing to snow, we’ll be preparing to dispatch our crews. If your snow removal must be done during the night, we will be coming as early as possible, typically 7 pm onwards. If your snow removal must be done during the day, we would be servicing your property between 7 am and 7 pm unless it had to be done early morning. The time we come out greatly depends on your property’s needs and when it actually begins to snow.

What do you use for gravel and when do you gravel the parking lot and ice melt the sidewalks?

For sanding, we use a product known as “Pickle mix”. This product is composed of pea gravel, sand, and salt. It increases traction for vehicles and footsteps, and helps mitigate ice build-up. The reason it is applied is to help prevent snow accidents. Pickle mix should be applied after each snowplow, especially when temperatures are expected to change. The biggest concern for liability is tripping hazards from when ice forms. We work with the general manager of the property to determine when Pickle mix should be applied, however we would do an application at our discretion if we have reason to believe it was essential for the safety of your site.
