SNOW REMOVAL F.A.Q.
Q. What areas do you service?
A. Addison, Elmhurst, Glen Ellyn, Glendale Heights, Lombard, Roselle, Villa Park, Wheaton.
Q. Do I need to call you when it snows?
A. No. Although we are always happy to speak with you, you can count on us to be there each time the minimum accumulation is reached.
Q. What time will you be at my house?
A. We generally start our residential snow removal routes when it is near the end of the snow fall. We run a route that is designed to be the most time efficient in order to complete all of our customers in timely manner. The route changes according to weather and traffic. And sometimes road conditions can be less than desirable causing us longer travel times between customers.
Q. How much does it cost?
A. Our snow removal service is priced by the total number of cars that can fit in your driveway and the snowfall accumulation removed per visit. Adding salt or chemical ice melt is additional. Our prices include the clearing of your walkway from the driveway to front door, door stoop and common sidewalk.
Q. Can I request that you only come out with 3 inches or more?
A. Unfortunately, we can’t do a 3″ inch trigger point. The trigger point is 1″. The reason for this is that residential snow removal has a high degree of overhead costs which have to be spread out through the season. We also have to keep reliable employees at the ready to respond right away when it snows. We count on a certain average number of service visits to make our business effective and profitable.
A 3″ minimum just doesn’t provide enough regular income to keep reliable employees, pay for equipment, gasoline and earn a profit for ourselves. The other factor is that we have a very short window in which we have to complete all our work or else we have unhappy clients. If we fill up our schedule with accounts which only get serviced 3-4 times a year then we either can’t get the work done in a reasonable amount of time or we don’t have enough clients to be profitable.
Q. How do you measure accumulation?
A. Accumulation is measured at eash service visit with a ruler. Several measurements are taken including drifted and windswept areas and the average depth is used. Believe it or not, this is how the national weather service does it.
