Shoveling. Snowblowing. Ice chopping. Sanding. It’s a never ending cycle during the winter if you live in Maine. Doesn’t it seem like every morning you have to set your alarm a little extra early, just in case a few inches fell the night before. And then there are the big storms…
If you’re dreading the next few months, we at AC Yard Services have a solution for you. We offer year-round contracts that include snow removal — during and after storms — plus everything your property needs to look its best the whole year.
Now, you may be wondering why we are already mentioning lawn mowing and leaf raking when there’s a layer of snow on the ground and ponds are still frozen solid. You may not realize it, but winter is actually the best time to think about your year-round property maintenance needs. See, it’s all about convenience and peace of mind. Allow us to explain.
Put winter weather worries to bed
Picture this: It’s Monday morning, the kids need to catch the bus, plus you have an 8 a.m. conference call to go over the company’s earnings forecast. The alarm goes off and you flip on the morning news. To your surprise, you hear Channel 6’s iconic Storm Center theme and immediately make a beeline to the window. A surprise storm hit overnight.
If you have a year-round contract with us, this wouldn’t be an issue. You would already be on our plowing route, and you wouldn’t have to think twice about calling us and arranging for the plow to arrive. Plus, with our contracts, we also take care of the details, like shoveling and sanding. That way, your entire property is safe and sound for your family.
Get your few extra minutes of sleep, get the kids ready for school and be at your best for the conference call — even if you weren’t expecting the overnight snowstorm.
Keep your business open, even during the storm
Here’s another scenario: You are the proprietor of your hometown’s favorite coffee shop. Maintenance workers, teachers, police officers, pretty much the whole community starts their day by coming through your doors. When 5 a.m. comes, the line will have already formed before your “open” sign is fully illuminated. But on days when the snowfall is more overwhelming than the morning rush, your responsibilities also begin to pile up.
Not if you sign up for one of our commercial contracts, however.
Our services are designed to keep your business property clear and safe for your customers and clients. Plus, you won’t have to worry about having to show up even earlier than usual to clear the snow yourself.
And we’ll even go up on the roof for you, too. As the winter progresses and snow starts to pile up on your building, it becomes ever more important to get the weight off. Snow and ice on your roof can cause structural damage to the building, but can also pose a danger to people below if it starts sliding off in large pieces. We don’t know many people who take their coffee with a lump to the head caused by an icicle…
Spend spring, summer and fall enjoying your lawn — not working on it
As Mainers, we know that yardwork just never seems to end. It’s especially fun when winter leaves us with a longer-than-normal muddy season…
If you lock into a year-round contract, though, you can go right ahead and mark all of your yard chores complete. We’ll put together a plan to tackle that seemingly endless list of tasks, giving you free time to actually enjoy your property or focus on the more pressing details of your life. Just imagine, a full summer where you get to kick back, host friends and enjoy your lawn — no mud either! Sounds pretty nice.
Maine is a beautiful place to live, and we at AC Yard Services certainly love it. But to get to the beautiful Maine summers, you have to live through the winters. We can help you get through it a little bit easier by taking care of the snow removal on your property.
