Before you invest time and materials into adding snow removal services to your business model, though, make sure you’re strategic in gaining contracts that help cover the costs of any snow removal equipment you invest in, as well as its maintenance.

You’ll want to get annual contracts, preferably with commercial properties where your margins are going to be higher than those from residential. Read further for tips on how to get snow removal contracts. Continue reading
