If you own a commercial property in the Worcester area, you know that having a reliable snow removal company is essential to keep things going in the winter.
At Ruane Property Management, we offer effective and affordable snow removal for our clients in Worcester and throughout Central MA. When thinking about hiring a snow removal company, we suggest a few points to consider:
The contract – A clear and explicit contract is crucial for effective snow removal and a good working relationship. This may seem like overkill but there are many variables and questions that can occur during a Worcester winter. How many inches of snow or separate visits by the snow removal company are covered? What about refreezing of snow melt on a parking lot? Is there so much snow that it needs to be shipped off-site? Be sure to spell out these questions with your snow removal company to keep all parties on the same page and communicating.
Liability – Does your Worcester commercial property’s liability insurance cover any slips and falls or property damage on the premises? Does your snow removal company carry their own liability insurance and what are the limits of their responsibilities? These and other legal questions are best reviewed beforehand with your attorney and property insurance providers.
Details – Plowing a driveway or parking lot is important during a snowstorm but be sure the little things are covered as well. Walkways, stairs, even icy handrails may all require attention. As part of the contract with your Worcester snow removal company, be sure to address any and all places that tenants or customers might travel.
