Fast, Professional Service
Thank you for considering us for the worst winter chore there is. We don’t mind at all! Clearing snow is what we do.
We don’t mind because after almost 25 years, we’ve gotten awfully good at it. Compared to our competition, we are a monster company. With literally hundreds of driveways and sidewalks to clear, no one clears more snow than Green Blade Lawn Care.
How do we handle so many customers with such ease? Well, for starters, we have over 65 crews and more than 200 employees at the ready and on call throughout the winter. We have truck plows, loaders, and we go through up to 300 vinyl shovels each winter. We have state of the art weather technology that allows us to be ready for battle before the first snowflake has even hit the ground. Coordinating this military operation is our main office and staff who have almost 25 years of experience dealing with the worst Old Man Winter can throw at us.
How does a snow clearing company become Winnipeg’s largest? We can tell you it certainly isn’t by accident. With a renewal rate of over 95% every year, we rarely advertise. You can imagine that the majority of new clients are typically neighbours, friends, or relatives of our current customers who have seen, first hand, what kind of service our customers receive in the winter. Every year, without exception, we end up with a waiting list. Our office receives calls for snow estimates every month of the year. Even on the hottest days of summer, we have people inquiring about our snow removal. We’ve grown one customer at a time and every single one of them counts.
Snow clearing can be a challenging business. It can be difficult and expensive and it’s always unpredictable. If you’re considering a snow clearing service, there some very important things to consider.
- Price. ‘Cheap’ is not slang for ‘excellent service’. When it comes to snow clearing you will, most certainly get what you pay for. Companies offering ‘low’ prices usually disappear when the snowfalls exceed ‘low’ amounts. Do you want to find this out in the middle of winter? Every year, without fail, we hear customers telling the same sad story about paying a guy who, when the going got tough, left them out in the cold, to shovel their own snow.
- Experience. How long has the company been handling snow removal? When it comes to snow, experience is everything. You cannot handle a 30cm snowfall the same way you handle 3cms. How does a company with one truck manage a snowfall 10x bigger than the average snowfall? When we get a blizzard, we both know that if you go with the other guy, you’ll be counting the minutes, first wondering ‘when’, then wondering ‘if’ you’re ever going to be getting out.
- Reliability. What happens when the company you hired has a breakdown with their only truck? What happens if their staff doesn’t show up for the really big snowfalls? With a fleet of over 65 crews and as many as 200 employees out clearing snow, you will never even know if we’ve ever had a breakdown.
- Trust. Green Blade Lawn Care is a well-known, highly visible company. You’ve seen our trucks in your neighbourhood for decades. Maybe you’ve seen our ads at a Goldeyes game, at a local hockey rink, in your mail, in the Winnipeg Free Press, or on the radio. With hundreds of customers to honour, we better mean business when it comes to snow. We have a big reputation to protect and our integrity is on the line with every single snowfall.
Snow clearing is our most sought after service. In fact it is so popular that in order to maintain the high standards we pride ourselves on, we simply have to cap how many customers we were taking on, or risk providing a diminished response time to our other wonderful customers, and that’s something we just won’t do. Each year we have a waiting list that has begun growing rapidly.
We would like to thank you for considering our snow clearing services. We hope you won’t need us this year, but this is Winnipeg, after all. Winter is coming. The only two questions are, ‘How bad will it be’ and ‘Are you ready?’
Don’t risk your snow clearing to someone who might literally leave you out in the cold. Trust in a company that more of your neighbours rely on than any other company in the business.
