Things I always would have in a contract.

Amount of snow required to plow
Amount of snow/ice required to sand.
How much it will cost to plow
How much it will cost to sand
How much it will cost to plow and sand
Cost if a loader is needed to move snow on the property.
What you are responsible for, damage to building and cars
Not responsible for damage to surface being plowed, or lawns and gardens boarding the area being plowed.

These are just some things i wouldn't want to be with out.

In addition to what's already been stated, depending on the area being serviced, I require a nonrefundable deposit for service. The deposit is settled at the end of the contract allowing immediate payment for the first snow or chemical spread. usually this is absorbed in the first chemical spread as being "free" spreading the first time out with a charge for the material used. This also depends on the amount you require for a deposit. Generally, I require an amount equal to the lowestsnow depth that they expect you out on. (2", or 3", or whatever)

No One will just show or give you there contracts.

first if they do and you just print it out and get some one to sign it they are responsible(like that would ever happen)LOL. I've only seen one out there and got some ideas from this.

Second thing start a search with the words CONTRACTS their is so much to read you will find it all. Right down all of the pointers that the different people talk about.

I hope this helps it did for me

add payment terms and state that they're responsible for all legal fees if you need to take them to court over payments

and if they want to control when you salt, then they assume all slip and fall liabilities if they fail or chose not to call you
