Every year we see competing companies going from home to home in our neighborhood trying to sign up consumers for their annual snow remove services. When thy do sign a customer up, they stick narrow signs into the ground at the end of the driveway on both sides showing their name an telephone number.
These signs really serve two purposes. First it is a demarcation point to show the snow removal operator where the end of your driveway is and also where the driveway meets the lawn or whatever bounds your driveway. This is helpful for the operator so that they do not damage your lawn etc.
Advertising Residential Snow Removal Services
In addition, this is advertising to your neighbors that this company is providing this service to you and they even provide the phone number on the sign so that you can easily call them. Let’s face it the more people they can sign up on a street or within the area the less time they spend traveling between jobs. Let’s face it they make more money and really in the long run it reduces the cost for all customers since the costs can be averaged over more customers.
Price for Residential Snow Removal Services
Residential snow removal services can cost somewhere between $300 to $500 for the season depending on the size of the driveway and the length of the driveway. In most cases they will also prorate the cost across the number of months that you are signing up for making it easier to make all of your payments. They are pretty reasonable and will adjust the cost based on whether they clear the steps or not and walkways around your home.
Many people head south for the winter and will hire a snow removal service before they leave. In fact they can clear the snow for the full season or for only the time that you are away if you cannot arrange for a neighbor to clear the snow for you. Sometimes it is just easier to hire residential snow removal services that you can depend on vs. relying on a neighbor who may or may not always clear the snow for you.
