With all that's going on have you forgotten about Finding a company to do all of your snow removal this year?
Today’s repost is from our archives at SafeSourcing, Inc.
Finding a company to maintain your snow removal for multiple locations can be very time consuming and complicated. Currently I am working with a client to help them find a vendor that can do all of their 80 plus locations. According to S&I Management, there are four types of buyers that comprise the S&I industry, including: residential, mainly single-family housing; retail, primarily small businesses; industrial, typically commercial offices and facilities; and other, including hospitals, universities, airports, sports arenas, etc.
- Residential makes up 34% of the S&I industry, an estimated $7.6B
- Retail is just over ¼ (27%) of the market, $6B
- Industrial represents another ¼ of the market, $5.8B – and given the larger footprint of industrial clients, is typically served by regional or national operators
- Other, such as hospitals, airports, etc. make up the remaining 17%,$3.3B
Snow and Ice services are growing at a fast pace. It’s expected to grow 3.2% every year until 2021. Now is the time to reevaluate what you are spending on your snow removal services. In the last few years we have saved our clients about $22,000 per RFQ. I know every company would love to have an extra $22,000 in their budget. If you are in the market, there are 110,000 companies in the snow removal industry, 88,000 are sole practitioners. The average operator has been in business 15.4 years and about 1/3 have more than 20 years of experience. Finding you a new vendor to do all of your snow removal services would not be difficult to find and there are companies that would love new business. The saving is there, you just need us to go look for it.
