Something many people in the north-east and Ottawa especially may be familiar with is the annual need for snow removal. You can’t avoid it and it either has to be done yourself, or by a professional Ottawa snow removal service. However the question undoubtedly arises, is there any value in hiring a snow removal contractor or is it all hype?
First, if you have an already busy morning routine, investing in a guaranteed driveway snow removal service will definitely free up time during busy weekdays. Most companies in Ottawa guarantee your property will be clear by a certain time, usually by 6AM; however you may be able to find one with enough research that fits your specific schedule. The ability to jump in your car without spending up to 60 minutes painstakingly shovelling snow is definitely worth an amount of money, especially when it’s a flat fee.
Furthermore, if you have any health concerns such as back pain snow removal may be an important preventative investment to make when winter comes. The cost of health related issues that are caused by bending and straining your back when shovelling snow far outweighs the flat seasonal cost of a snow plough service. This is especially true given the competition that has driven the price down to as low as $199 per season depending on your location within the City of Ottawa.
Finally, in recent years there have been many concerns about signing an early season contract and not receiving any service in the Ottawa area. This can be mitigated by simply doing enough research on trusted and reliable snow removal contractors that should ideally belong to a certified organization like the BBB.
