Vancouver Snow Removal: What to Look for in a Snow Removal Contract

Are you in search of a reliable snow removal contract? When considering a snow removal service, Flat Mate Property Services would like you to be aware of some critical factors to look for in a contract. A poorly written contract can not only result in subpar service and performance but can also expose you to potential injury claims. Think of the contract as a reflection of the company itself; the more detailed and transparent it is, the more dependable and easy to work with the company is likely to be.

A Snow Removal Contract Should Be Clear and Complete

A well-structured contract should leave no room for assumptions. It should clearly outline the responsibilities of both the property owner and the contractor. Your contract should feature a property map that identifies the areas where work will be performed, along with a comprehensive explanation of the services. Moreover, the contract should specify start and end dates, leaving no ambiguity.

Know What You're Paying For

When selecting a snow removal contractor, it's crucial to understand what you're paying for. The contract should not only itemize all costs but also provide a breakdown of payment term options.

The aim is to ensure complete transparency in terms of services, equipment, and their purposes. An easily comprehensible contract is a testament to the company's integrity. It should not be laden with industry jargon designed to obscure details that might lead to additional, unexpected costs.

Make Sure You Are Covered

Don't forget to ask for proof of insurance. Make sure that responsibility for any injury claims rests with the snow removal company. If they lack liability insurance or are unable to cover a claim, you could find yourself in a precarious situation.

A reputable contractor should have coverage for a minimum of $5 million in general liability insurance and WSIB coverage for all workers, and they should provide clearance certificates as proof. A contract lacking these critical elements is insufficient and should raise concerns.


Snow removal services vary in terms of experience and scope. A detailed, complete contract reveals a lot about the service provider. By thoroughly reviewing the contract, you can ensure that it offers a fair deal for both parties, accurately representing the work to be performed. It should provide a precise breakdown of pricing, scope of work, and any additional services or costs. The contract should specify when and under what conditions the services will be executed.
