4 Benefits of Hiring a Professional Snow Plowing Service

Anyone who has lived in Portland for a while knows that the city is never really prepared for snow hitting the valley floor. However, shutting down is not an option for a lot of businesses and residential areas. When the snow falls, you have a couple options; you can grab your shovel and get to it, or you can call the professionals.

4 Benefits of Hiring a Professional Snow Plowing Service

Here are 4 reasons you may want to outsource snow removal.


Shoveling your driveway after a good snowfall can take hours, hours which could be better spent on other things. If shoveling a driveway can take that long, imagine shoveling an entire parking lot! A professional plowing service can clear your driveway or parking lot in a fraction of the time it would take you to shovel it.

When shoveling, you need to pile up your snow somewhere on your property for it to be out of the way to melt. With a professional plowing service, you can choose to pile it somewhere out of the way, or you even have the option to have the snow completely removed from your property with front loaders, skid steers and dump trucks. This will save you time and space so you don’t have to wait for the snow to melt.

Professionals will also apply de-icer after plowing. This is a huge benefit as it will remove any ice that can’t be plowed or shoveled, and it will decrease the amount of future work needed to remove more snow in the future. De-Icer makes it harder for ice and snow to bond with pavement, meaning less plowing and shoveling in the future!

Personally, I find that when I am rushed, I don’t do as good of a job as I could.

Proper Equipment

The Pacific Northwest isn’t really known for getting a lot of snowfall, and it’s generally not worth buying expensive plows and snow removal equipment just to store them for most of the year. That being said, snow and ice will and do affect our lives every year.

Let the snow removal professionals deal with the equipment, this will save you money and storage space. Pros will keep their equipment, such as plows, well maintained and in tip top shape, which will prevent any damage to your property.

Avoid Injury

Shoveling snow can be a really labor-intensive job. A lot of pushing and lifting is involved, which can put a lot of stress on your back and arms and potentially lead to injury. Starting your day by throwing out your back can ruin your plans and is completely avoidable.


Aside from injury, the amount of energy needed to shovel all of that snow can leave you tired and burned out before the work day even begins. Save your energy for the important parts of your day by calling a professional plowing service to take care of your snow removal needs.
