Living in the city, it can be hard to own or store snow removal equipment. Short of a snow shovel, many residents have no other choice then to use a residential snow removal service to clear their driveways, walkways or parking spots. Finding a reliable snow removal service in Boston is tough as well- there are not enough companies with the capacity to keep up with the extreme demand that occurs when a decent snow storm occurs.
Driveway snow removal services also face the challenge of having a place to put the snow they remove. In the suburbs, finding a corner or empty space is easy. When property owners are legally responsible for keeping sidewalks clear in addition to clearing parking areas, the snow accumulation needs to be removed physically. Large snow removal contractors have trucks for offloading, or snow melting machines that can be used to decimate the snow. City plows have designated snow removal areas. Once the snow begins stacking up storm after storm, the small guy is almost forced to call in a professional snow removal service to get rid of the snow accumulation.
Many Boston snow removal firms have snow plows and snowblowers ready to go, but then are deluged by calls from those who can’t keep up with Mother Nature. Salting and sanding are additional services that are offered. In the case of a multi-tenant landlord, hiring one of the reliable, insured snow removal firms from the greater Boston area is the only choice that can reduce their liability exposure. By relying on their professionalism, insurance and licensing, property managers can assure the safety of residents and lower the risk exposure they face.
