Few businesses go above and beyond what is expected of them today. It’s natural to our human intentions to meet the bare minimum, doing just barely enough to stay in the game and retain our client base. That couldn’t be more different than how we view our service offerings and clients today, which is why you want to consider working with a company like ours – one that cares.

Here are 5 reasons to pick us over any ole’ company:

Technology: We are a technologically driven company, constantly learning about new tools and resources to expedite our services while providing heightened accuracy. Through our real-time winter weather monitoring tools, we’re able to report back on current conditions. Additionally, we are able to forecast winter weather, putting us ahead of the competition before the snow and ice has even arrived.

Dedication: We are obsessed with winter weather clearing. We want our clients to be safe and secure during the roughest months of the year, which is why we provide a customized 24-7 experience, opening us up to communication whenever required. We stay in constant contact with clients, providing updates on impending weather conditions before they make landfall.

Education: We’re never content with just knowing the industry standard. That’s why we attend dozens of expos, shows, events, and classes every single year, earning new accreditations to enhance our service offerings. We believe every great business is based on education and information, which is why our leadership team is constantly traveling to acquire newfound knowledge that sets us apart from the competition.

Eco-Friendly: We’re not another snow plow company that tears up the environment. We administer environmentally friendly de-icing liquids that treat the selected area without burning away grass and vegetation. Administering salt only when necessary, we don’t over-salt or destroy your property in the process. Through careful precision, we provide tailored services that are good for you and the environment.

Snow Boot Camp: Plow Truck Field Day Training

One of the more common, yet crucial, pieces of equipment for a winter and ice removal company is the plow truck/salter. Without plow trucks, we wouldn’t be able to promise safety conditions to our clients when it comes to the brutal Northeastern blizzards. That’s why we devote an entire portion of our Snow Boot Camp training to plow truck/salter operation alone: they can make or break our business.

Plow trucks can be complex pieces of machinery, which is why we want to ensure every member of our team has an adept understanding of how to operate and manage a plow truck and its components. We want them to subconsciously dream about the plow trucks when they leave for the day and go home at night. We need every member of the team to know a plow truck like the back of their hand, which is why we start training them in the operation of the trucks during the off-season months.

Plow Truck Field Days

We provide classroom training, as well as hands-on training, for our plow truck fleet. During our Snow Boot Camp plow truck field days, we cover:

Overview: We go over the mechanics of the plow trucks in a classroom setting, covering the details that everyone needs to understand in case of a quick tune up or fix out in the field. While managing properties, if something goes wrong, we want TeamX to be able to fix it without having to call back to base.

Operation: In the classroom, we go over the operation manual. However, we then take the team out into the field, inside the plow trucks, for days on end until everyone feels confident in their ability to operate the machinery.

Salter and Brine Trucks: Beyond the plow, we also cover the mechanics of the salter, and how to salt properly without destroying the environment and properties in the process.

Skidsteer: Next, we cover the tools that load the trucks with salt, etc. so each TeamX member can effectively manage their own fleet without any oversight or management.

We don’t believe in micromanaging here. That’s why we invest in every single one of our employees from the get-go. By understanding every component of the snow plow, these individuals can respond to calls and requests without requiring extra back-up.

We use the off-season months to our advantage, acquainting everyone with everything they need to know about salting, plowing, fine tuning, etc. That way, no one is under pressure of the snowfall and can take their time exploring our top quality equipment. We pair education with hands-on training for the most effective results, requiring new hires to undergo rigorous boot camps so they are brought up to speed.

That’s how we do business here at Xtreme Snow Pros.

Xtreme Snow Pros Announces New NJ Location

Constantly working to fortify and expand current service offerings and options, Xtreme Snow Pros is not a company that remains complacent or static. That’s why, officially this week, the company announced a brand new location in New Jersey, able to accommodate their growing service demand and clientele. Servicing the greater New York City and New Jersey regions, the company felt a New Jersey base made sense for easy access in and out of the city – especially when road conditions become questionable.

The new location will officially be at: 99 Marshall Hill Road in West Milford, New Jersey. During the coming summer months, the company will be moving their headquarters to this new location, which is a larger and more fortified improvement than their previous headquarters. With the new square footage, they will be able to house more equipment and snow clearing infrastructure that is required to keep client properties safe and protected during the trying winter months.

Xtreme Snow Pros Expanded Offerings

It requires a lot of space to offer the suite of services that Xtreme Snow Pros makes available to clients today, which is why the team looked long and hard to find a location that they felt was just right. With the new space, they will be expanding their most popular services, including: state-of-the-art equipment and advanced products for snow and ice removal, remote webcams to monitor live weather conditions, equipment and treatment storage for the different services offering, anti-icing liquid storage, snow-fighting equipment storage, and other requirements that are increasing with the expanding clientele.

Going above and beyond the norm, Xtreme Snow Pros sends storm alerts to clients through a personalized dashboard, repairs grass and other proxy damage from the winter season, and uses environmentally friendly materials with reduced salt to support the surrounding ecosystems today.

Most passionate about clients and their safety today, Xtreme Snow Pros curate services that not only protects and fortifies locations, but also promotes longevity and success in that operation. Despite the warm summer weather ahead, now is the perfect time to consider onboarding a new snow and ice clearing company for the 2018.19 winter season.

Every year, a comprehensive snow and ice removal event takes place, welcoming industry elite and participants from around the country to share their best practices when it comes to tackling winter weather. Believing that collaboration is more valuable than working as independent entities, snow and ice removal leaders set aside time to network with leading thinkers and researchers in the industry.

This year’s Snow and Ice Show took place May 1 thru the 3rd in Hartford, Connecticut. As an event that unites manufacturers, suppliers, and snow and ice management professionals for two and a half days of education, networking, and trade show displays, this year’s event was focused on the principles of successful snow and ice management: managing risk, reducing insurance rates, and reducing bogus slip-and-fall claims. Speaking personally regarding de-icing strategies, equipment purchasing and management, and creating culture in your own organization, Xtreme Snow Pros founder Chris Marino and Operations Manager Glenn Kramer were in attendance.

2018 Snow and Ice Show

This year’s event featured a plethora of topics from a variety of speakers, hailing from every community around the country. Talks touched on: contract language for the snow and ice management industry, basics of snow and ice management, physical conditions to look for on a property, documentation to meet industry standards, technology for sales and customer service, overcoming plateaus in your business, structuring your snow team for success, and the list goes on.

Marino was a central figure in the proceedings, providing three different talks that were positively received by the audience.

Starting with his talk on de-icing, Marino quickly stated: de-icing is such a broad and important category that an entire conference alone could have been dedicated to it. He started off by asking business owners to reflect on their service offerings. Did they offer de-icing? Marino also imparted his expertise on equipment purchasing and management, asking the audience to describe their equipment portfolio, as well as the depth of their operations.

Always working to develop new relationships and integrate new technology and best practices that revolutionize Xtreme Snow Pros business model, Kramer and Marino attended events every day of the conference, meeting with new business owners and innovative thinkers. The Xtreme Snow Pros team is constantly working to improve upon their service offerings, which is why Marino is a central figure at snow and ice events around the country every year.

We look forward to the 2019 Snow and Ice Show!

Xtreme Snow Pros Chris Marino Speaks on 3 Different Topics at 2018 Snow and Ice Show

20180606_151232.jpg

This year’s Snow and Ice Show has finally rolled around, taking place May 1st to the 3rd in Hartford, Connecticut. As an event that unites manufacturers, suppliers, and snow and ice management professionals for two and a half days of education, networking, and trade show displays, this year’s event was focused on the principles of successful snow and ice management: managing risk, reducing insurance rates, and reducing bogus slip-and-fall claims.

Naturally, as a leader in the snow and ice removal industry for the greater Northeastern region of the United States, Xtreme Snow Pros owner, Chris Marino, was part of the elite team of speakers and presenters offering up their experience, information, and research. Speaking on three different topics, Marino discussed de-icing strategies, equipment purchasing and management, and creating culture in your own organization.

De-Icing

As Marino quickly stated: de-icing is such a broad and important category that an entire conference alone could have been dedicated to it. He started off by asking business owners to reflect on their service offerings. Did they offer de-icing? No? If they did, how much of an impact did it make on their business once they added it to he repertoire? Next, he moved into asking the audience of their customers understood how de-icing worked, and its notable differences when compared to snow removal.

Looking at de-icing products, Marino touched on Xtreme Snow Pros approach to de-icing, as well as how they provide options to their clients. He asked the audience: how much training needs to be administered before proper application? What is the average profit margin contractors should be realizing from their de-icing services? What are contractors doing right or wrong?

Marino also made a point to touch on trendy questions related to de-icing, like the request for “organic” de-icing solutions.

Equipment Purchasing & Management

Marino imparted his expertise on equipment purchasing and management, asking the audience to describe their equipment portfolio, as well as the depth of their operations. What’s your equipment purchasing philosophy? What are your thoughts on rent and lease options for snow and ice management? Do you have a dedicated manager, and what are the costs?

Marino finished off the segment by touching on how important it is to develop relationships with local dealers and contractors for top-notch performance.

Overall, it was another incredibly productive and successful Snow and Ice Show, attracting industry elite from around the country to share their experiences and observances for a more informed snow removal industry. We look forward to participating in next years’ event.
