The Costs Of Snow Plowing 

Many commercial property owners new to collecting bids for commercial snow plowing are a little shocked at the cost. “How hard can it be to plow my own lot?” they asked themselves. Let’s go through just some of the costs associated with snow plowing, which are not always accounted for, although most people can certainly learn how to safely remove snow.
The Cost of Snow Plowing Equipment
The most obvious expense is going to be a snow plow. With a bottom end plow or a decent used plow coming in around $4,000 and new, contractor grade plows costing up to $7,500 after you throw in installation. The plow isn’t cheap.

Do you think your plow is going to last you 10 years?

Unless you only plow one or two driveways or a small parking lot, think again.
The nature of plowing means that snow plows endure significant wear and tear. Many professional contractors replace their plows every 3 years, and with light winters or cautious plowing. They might get another one or two winters out of them. Hitting hidden objects—lots of hidden objects—as the plow is pushed along the ground, shortens the plow’s lifespan. The trip springs will lighten (again lighten, not eliminate) the impact, but there are times you will accidentally knock the edge of the blade or you will hit a really big object under the snow. The snow plow takes continual pounding which is hard on the hydraulics and the frame of the plow. After a while, you WILL need to repair or replace the plow, so be ready.
It is not just your plow that takes a beating. The transmission on your vehicle feels all of those jolts as well. If you have a one-ton truck or smaller that you intend to plow with, plan on replacing your transmission or your vehicle every few years. On the low end, that is another $3500 for the transmission or on the high end you could spend $50,000+ on that new pickup of yours (love those leather heated seats).

The Cost of Snow Plowing Documentation?

A professional commercial snow removal company will document all the work they do with date and time stamps plus the best companies taking before and after pictures. We will retain that documentation for up to a decade. Were you planning on documenting all of your work? You wonder why someone would even bother.
The reason to document your work is to ward of frivolous lawsuits. Someone could bring a slip and fall suit against you literally years after they supposedly fell on your property after a snow storm. If you did not properly document the work you did, be ready to pay an average of over $15,000 per lawsuit.Hidden Costs.

Who is going to plow for you?

Oh, you will save money by plowing yourself? Yet your time is still worth something, because you could have been doing something else to make or save money.

We lose that time. Even if you plow at night and go in for a full work day, you will be far less efficient and less effective. This is because your mind does not function as well when you do not get a full night’s sleep.
Other costs include fuel (plowing is not a fuel-efficient activity) and replacing your tires more often. Additionally, you may need to replace your truck battery every 2-3 years since plowing is hard on your truck’s electrical system too.
Then there are the little costs that add up. Most plow guys will have the constant flow of caffeinated beverages to keep them awake during the wee hours of the morning. You will also want to spend a few dollars on extra warm clothes for when you are out of the truck shoveling.

On top of all the dollars going out, you must also remember you have to remain available to remove snow.  From October through March and every once in a while, in April or May too, snow removal is important!

This means you can’t plan overnight trips or reschedule important meetings when a storm rolls through. Ensure you don’t get sick or injured because you’ll still need to remove the snow no matter what happens.

The added benefit of using a professional commercial snow removal company is you never have to lose any beauty.  Sleep to ensure your property is safe for vehicles and pedestrians.
These represent the significant costs, although we may have missed some items. If you are still thinking of snow plowing on your own, good luck and be safe!
