The weather has cooled way down after a hot summer and start to autumn. Breezy conditions, sweaters, and preparation for snow season are in the air.

Snow contractors always need to worry about salt orders, equipment purchases and hiring months before the flakes start flying. Important steps to improve snow and ice companies should be done before the heavy snow hits.

SIMA and the Accredited Snow Contractor Association (ASCA) strongly suggest having a weather forecasting service at your disposal. Now is the time to get prepared by doing research on private weather consulting companies and which one is right for you.

Savvy snow removal managers know it’s important to cultivate a relationship with service providers. The time to purchase from a weather consulting company is right now!

Just like your commercial accounts need time to set up, it’s similar with a weather company.

Weather companies work off a similar winter contract schedule just snow contractors.

Accurate weather information is vital in mitigating winter risk. If snow companies have an accurate forecast they can better attack the storm. This should lead to a cleaner property and less slip and falls, plus complaints from the customer.

Don’t let weather information be an after-thought. Promote that you have access to a team of meteorologists to stay ahead of Mother Nature. It’s a great selling tool to secure the best accounts.
