Calgary isn’t Canada’s snowiest city, but we do get it all when it comes to weather. It’s not at all unusual for snow to fall at what seems to be moments after the end of August. It was sadly still technically summer when the infamous Snowtember incident happened in 2014. Temperatures plummeted and three days of snow led to more than 45 centimetres falling on parts of the city (the highest early September snowfall in 130 years). Fifty percent of the 500,000 city-owned trees and 1.5 million trees on private property ended up being either lost or damaged, which was a true tragedy.
We can get huge dumps in the city, plus Chinooks that dry everything up maybe once or twice a winter. Calgary has an annual average total of more than 54 snowy days per year and 130 centimetres of accumulation spanning up to ten months of the year, which means we have our snow shovels at the ready at all times.
After three generations of working in Calgary, we are always ready to clear the sidewalks, pathways, driveways, and parking lots of our clients – no matter what month it is. We live and work in the southeast area of the city, and understand the care and pride residents and businesses take in maintaining their properties.
Snow removal is a huge job, and we are a snow removal company you can trust. We fulfill our mandates to you each and every time and are upfront about what they are.
1. Prompt service after a snowfall
Throughout the winter we pay close attention to weather forecasts and are always prepared to hit the streets running as soon as we can. We have tons of manpower, a fleet of trucks, and the snow removal equipment necessary to respond to all our customers quickly after a major snowfall. City of Calgary bylaws dictate that snow must be removed from sidewalks, pathways, driveways, and parking lots within 24 hours of the last flake falling, and we make it our promise to be there well before the snow causes any problems on your commercial or residential property.
2. Employees who matter and care
If your snow removal company’s employees don’t seem happy and sometimes do not show as much care and attention as they could, this is a sign that it’s not a great place to work and therefore not a place you can trust. Our employees are have our support, always. We provide benefits, holidays, and ensure our people are always properly dressed for the weather. We train everyone in how to operate equipment with proper safety techniques, and ensure our equipment is well taken care of, safe, and good quality. We are a snow removal company that cares for its workers so that they will care for your property.
3. Protecting you from liabilty
Residential and commercial property owners or occupiers are responsible for the snow removal on their property. If you do not have a snow removal plan in place and someone slips and falls on your property, you could be held liable. Hiring a snow removal company does not fully release you from liability, but does protect you on some additional levels.
As a reputable and insured snow removal company, our background can help prove that you have done all you can to keep those who visit safe. That in combination with your oversight and due diligence should assist in your proving that you were not negligent should an accident occur.
4. Billing that makes sense
We bill monthly with clear terms of service and caution against snow removal contracts that contain wording allowing for additional visits. There are some companies that will take advantage of months with a heavy snowfall, and add on extra charges for what they might call additional services. We do our very best to provide quotes that will reflect the amount of service needed and are among the most competitive in the market.
5. Easily contactable
There may be a reason that you need your snow removal company to visit your property in between snowstorms or as soon as possible after the snow falls, such as a fast melt and freeze causing ice to build up or a entrances being blocked due to an unusual build up. In any case, you want to be assured that the snow removal company you work with will be responsive to your call, and we will.
6. Piling where practical … and legal
For our large commercial jobs, we will always consult with clients about where they want their snow piled. We can provide our expertise in this matter if needed. We will never pile snow where it could obstruct movement of vehicles or pedestrians, rather we leave it at the edges of properties and near a drain if possible. Snow cleared from private property, such as that from your driveway or your parking lot, must be piled on your own property, so we will keep it out of your way at all times.
When we visit we always take care to be respectful. For our residential properties, we’ll keep our snow removal activities to a minimum during regular sleeping hours. We are not here to bother you, we are here to benefit you.
