Getting start the snow removal in business is not as easy as you think. You have to do many ways before you exactly begin to work. First, you have to market your services before they are needed. Your goal should be to sign up enough clients ahead of the season to justify purchase of equipment. Second, place ads on bulletin boards, at hardware and home center stores, and in community newspapers. Then, ask friends and neighbors for referrals. Offer a discount or a free service for any clients they bring to you. And, you can draw up a simple but complete agreement with clients listing exactly which services you will be providing and the cost. Include in the agreement whether snow removal services will automatically be provided after a certain amount of snow falls, or whether the client must call to schedule a visit each time.
Besides that, you should get specific written instructions about any special conditions—a flower bed to be avoided or a section that needs to be hand-shoveled. Although it will be extremely difficult to promise exact times for snow removal—you can’t schedule the storms—find out from clients whether they have particular needs to meet the demands of their jobs or medical necessities. If you want to run the business on a more casual basis, you can merely load up a truck with a snowblower or plow and cruise the neighborhood looking for desperate homeowners who need help. And the last, you have to be sure to get a firm agreement on the price before you begin work.
