Snow. It’s a fact of life, especially when you live in Canada. And even though it looks pretty for a while, many of us view it as a nuisance, especially when it keeps us from doing the things we need to do and from getting to the places we need to go. That’s why a reliable snow removal service is essential to getting on with everyday business as usual.

Snow removal makes travel easier and safer, whether on foot or on wheels and keeps businesses open, even after significant snowstorms. When your roads, sidewalks, driveways, and parking lots are free of snow, delays aren’t a problem and work continues.

That means hiring a reliable contractor to rid your property of snow and ice protects both your employees and customers while also protecting your bottom line. When the snow is cleared, businesses are better able to operate as usual and little or no money is lost.

So, what should you look for when shopping for a reliable snow removal company? And how do you know which company is right for your needs?

Availability

You’ll want the snow removal company you choose to be readily available to handle the job for which you’ve hired them. For example, if the snow ends at 3 a.m. and you need to open by 9 a.m., you’ll need a contractor that can respond to those needs, even in that short window of time. That means hiring a company like Fraser Valley Snow Removal, which offers 24/7 service to its customers. They show up on time with the right equipment and don’t leave until your property is clear.

Equipment

To tackle jobs both large and small, you need the right equipment. Fraser Valley Snow Removal boasts a large fleet of snow removal vehicles and equipment so that they can do the job right the first time. With about 50 pieces of equipment on hand, the company is able to service numerous clients at the same time so that no one is disappointed by late arrivals or poor quality of workmanship. And the ability to get the job done right on the first pass means lower prices as well.

Of course, snow removal equipment isn’t limited to just large machinery like front-end loaders and backhoes. Our dedicated staff often pulls out their shovels to tackle certain jobs by hand, especially small, hard-to-reach spaces that demand a little extra attention, like sidewalks, steps, and building entrances and exits.

Because of our vast variety of equipment, no job is too big or too small. We’ve done it all, from tiny parking lots or driveways to immense ports, rail yards, malls and other commercial and industrial properties. An inspection of your property when we accept your job means that we know what we need to complete the task BEFORE we arrive, which limits delays in service, whether your job takes 15 minutes or 5 hours.

Attention to the environment

At Fraser Valley Snow Removal, we offer the use of “green” products that are kind to the environment around us. That means vegetation-friendly options that won’t ruin your grass, plants, or shrubs. We care that you care about the health and beauty of our natural resources, so we’ll do everything necessary to remain in line with your desire to steer away from products that include harsh chemicals or other toxins.

Pre-checks and follow-ups

The owners and staff at Fraser Valley Snow Removal don’t simply rely on weather services to gauge what’s going on outside, though we do keep a constant eye on conditions and predicted snowfall. In addition, however, we offer site visits to check surface conditions both during and after a snowfall, engage on-site supervisors to make sure removal is being done correctly and efficiently, apply salt or other products that keep surfaces clear after snowfalls, and even offer snow relocation where necessary.

Hard-working, dedicated employees

Of course, working as a snow removal specialist isn’t an easy job, so we make sure our employees are up to the task. Our workers are expected to get the job done correctly and in a timely manner, so we train them to be efficient experts at snow removal before we send them out on your all-important job.

And in the rare instance that you’re not happy with their work, just one phone call makes it right. We promise.
