Fall is here and we are already in full preparation for winter weather. At this point, forecasts vary, so it's too early to tell but despite any forecast, preparing for the worst is needed. Like the past 3 years, you don't want to get caught off guard.
We always have some form of snow or ice so we all need to prepare for all eventualities. As you know, we are well equipped to serve our customers and are taking orders now. We sent out our Winter Storm Service Sign-up Forms to our maintenance customers so now is time now to sign up for winter storm services to ensure your property is served when winter weather arrives. We ask that customers sign up by November 1st to help us plan and prepare.
We believe we provide the best winter weather service in the Portland/Vancouver Metro area out of our 3 offices: Hillsboro, Sherwood, and Parkrose. We provide sidewalk shoveling and deicing, parking lot plowing and sanding, as well as parking lot deicer pre-treating. You can sign up for any or all of these services and can designate whether you want them provided on weekdays or all days including weekends. We monitor weather throughout the winter and recommend you allow us to make the determination on when to deploy but leave you the option of making the call.
We do however give priority to those who designate us to make the call. If plowing is desired, we will charge for mobilization when plowable snow is predicted as getting equipment to site must be done prior to the storm. We also have begun to provide deicer pre-treating but do only if plowing and sanding is also ordered. Pre-treating with deicer only prevents black ice or heavy frost and is ineffective if snow falls. Remember, we offer preferential pricing and priority service for maintenance customers who order service before November 1st. If you have questions please call your Area Manager to discuss
