    Read the thread un "elements of business" There are several contracts there. Here's ours.

    Here's our contract for anyone interested.

    CPSS Electric

    Snow Removal Agreement




    It is the responsibility of the contractor, (CPSS Electric) to provide initial winter storm work such as snow plowing, road salting, calcium chloride applications, clearing of entrances and exits to parking lots.
    The contractor will not be responsible for salt or plow damage to sod, trees or shrubs, nor scratches or scrapes in asphalt or concrete surfaces. The contractor cannot assume liability for any salt or calcium chloride damage to concrete, black top or wood. Management must notify contractor within 48 hours of any other damages. Failure to report damages constitutes a waiver and the contractor is released from liability.

    Management understands that if sidewalk snow removal is included in contract, sidewalk crews may not safely work if temperatures and wind conditions combined make chill factors below 0° degrees Fahrenheit. Management understands the contractor reserves the right to stop working in these severe conditions so as not to force unsafe working conditions upon its employees.

    Contractor must always be notified whenever additional snow work of any kind is required by the management after the initial clearing has been done.

    CPSS Electric will exercise its best judgment for the services needed based upon weather forecasts and existing conditions at the time. Customer is aware that weather conditions in the area may change rapidly and without notice. Changes in weather conditions are considered to be an "Act of God" and CPSS Electric assumes no liability for Acts of God.

    Contractor assumes no responsibility for vehicles parked illegally or in areas that the contractor has stated to the management to be in a location that causes a hazard or impedes performance of our work
