It’s been a beautiful fall thus far, but, as they say, “winter is coming.” It’s time for commercial property owners and managers to start to face the annual challenge of taking care of their extensive properties during the cruelest months of the year. Effective snow removal is crucial to ensure the safety and accessibility of your business property.
A reliable and professional commercial snow removal company can make your winter manageable and completely worry-free. It’s our job to keep your property safe and operational during harsh winter conditions.
- Experience and reputation
When considering your commercial snow removal company options in Calgary, the first thing to look for is experience and reputation. We at Mirage have three generations of history handling snow removal for large and small business owners in the city, and we have the knowledge and resources necessary to manage your property efficiently. We are completely transparent. Potential clients can check our track record by reading our online reviews, asking for references, and consulting with other local businesses who have used our services.
- Licensing and insurance
Insurance costs have been rising for snow removal businesses, but rest assured that Mirage is completely covered. And unlike other snow removal companies, we do not download the extra costs on to our clients. We advise everyone to check the snow removal insurance coverage of any company they are looking in to and to ensure their coverage is up to date and valid for the entirety of the snow season. Remember that liability is the most critical component of snow removal insurance coverage, and that’s what we do. Protect you from liability.
- Equipment and technology
As a modern commercial snow removal company, we take great pride in the quality and condition of our snow-removal equipment. We have well-maintained trucks, haulers, snowplows, snow blowers, and, of course, more than one type of shovel. We also use the very best weather monitoring systems so that we are prepared for a snowfall well before it happens.
- Response time and availability
City of Calgary bylaws stipulate snow must be removed to a minimum width of 1.5 metres from public sidewalks bordering a property within 24 hours of a snowfall ending, and it’s our goal to get there well before this timeframe ends. We also remove snow from parking lots, scraping down to the bare pavement, and pile snow safely out of the way.
- Safety Protocols
Many of our staff have been with us for several years, and that’s because we provide excellent benefits, on-the-job training, and continuous job development opportunities (such as workplace safety certificates). Safety is always our highest priority – that of our employees as well as those who come to your business. We have zero tolerance for anyone who works in a dangerous or thoughtless manner. Included among our safety protocols is using appropriate signage, barriers, and reflective materials to indicate hazardous areas and people at work.
- Environmental Considerations
Eco-friendly snow removal practices are becoming increasingly important. We do our best to minimize our environmental impact by using environmentally friendly de-icing materials and snow disposal methods.
- Clear pricing and contracts
We take pride in providing clear and transparent contracts so you know there will never be surprises or hidden costs. As business owners ourselves, we know the importance of budgeting. We provide a clear, detailed estimate that outlines the cost of services, what to expect for our services, and the frequency of visits and timeframe.
Ever try to get a hold of your snow-removal company and not be able to? This is not uncommon, and something we at Mirage work hard to avoid. We are always available during regular business hours at 403-252-5235, and have a clear communication process in place in case of emergencies
- References and recommendations
Don’t hesitate to ask us for our references and recommendations. We have several commercial clients with whom we’ve worked with for years who are more than happy to tell of their experience with us.
