At U.S. Lawns, we establish our value with customers by doing a great job and providing them with above-and-beyond service. One of the ways we do that is by helping them to save money whenever possible. Here are a few of the ways we help them do just that.
Plan Ahead for Snow and Ice Management Services
Many businesses don’t plan for snow and ice management services until a storm hits. At that point, it can be difficult to find a local snow plow operator with availability. To make matters worse, many local businesses charge a fee for last-minute service. U.S. Lawns helps our customers avoid these fees by ensuring that they’re under contract for snow and ice management services well in advance. Of course, being proactive does a lot more than save our customers money: it also helps reduce the amount of time their property will be in disarray, and possibly inaccessible after a storm hits. As every property manager knows, safely getting back to business as usual is more important than ever in the winter months.
Our Knowledge of Your Property May Prevent Problems
Snow removal services can be contracted for an entire season or for individual weather events. These are referred to as “per season” or “per push” contract terms. Commercial property managers might end up spending more in the long run by contracting with smaller landscaping companies for one-time, per push services.
Why the extra expense? Doing business this way means that you haven’t formed a strong partnership with a team that’s dedicated to getting to know your property. For instance, damages can occur when an operator plows a site they have never seen without snow. Chipped curbs and other damage will likely only be discovered after paying the bill and the snow melts
U.S. Lawns, on the other hand, develops lasting relationships with our clients. As a result, we know their properties well and are less likely to do damage when plowing. Furthermore, we’re able to spot problems with soil, irrigation equipment, and hardscapes early on. Our attention to detail often prevents small problems from spiraling out into larger and more expensive ones
Getting an Accurate Estimate
Getting an estimate may seem straightforward, but with other landscapers it can be anything but. Many landscapers simply “eyeball” a property to come up with an estimate. This method leaves many factors up to chance or out of the equation altogether. This can lead to larger problems later, and no one likes getting stuck paying more than they’ve been quoted. U.S. Lawns has developed a software application that takes many factors into account, including our customers’ landscape goals. We start planning ahead from the moment we provide you with our precise estimates, ensuring that less is left to chance.
These are just three of the reasons it pays to plan ahead. Ready to learn more about the benefits of careful planning? Contact U.S. Lawns today!
