With winter in full swing, it can be a tough call to decide how to manage the weather. When ice or heavy snow build up overnight, your business feels the impact in the morning. The Livonia area has been hit with some extremely cold days lately. The snow may continue to fall for weeks to come.
Businesses come in all shapes and sizes, as do their parking lots. Handling the snow to come can be a big hassle for your company. The decision to take on the elements yourself or enlist the help of a professional plowing service is not always easy. Below are the best reasons for each option so you can weigh the benefits of each.
DIY Snow Plowing
Self-Reliance - You know how you work. It can be difficult working with people from outside your organization. External folks can have different values than you, may be unavailable when you need them, and may not do the job up to your expectations.
Cost - When you do the plowing in-house, you do not need to pay an outside company the money. If you do it yourself, you don’t have to pay anyone at all!
Available Now - When it starts snowing, you can begin to plow. If it starts snowing during the business day, you can run out and take care of the snow building up before it gets to be too much.
Professional Removal Service
Expertise and Efficiency- A professional snow removal service will need to impress you. They will do this with their promptness, thorough plowing, and positive attitude. You are good at what you do, let snow removers do what they are good at doing - plowing your parking lot. Delegating the plowing will give you more time with your clients.
Safety - With snow and ice come hazards to your customers. With even an inch of snow, people will be in danger of slipping or falling, especially elderly folks. If a customer sees an unplowed parking lot, they may think your business is not open. Even the potential for slips can open your business up to avoidable liability.
