    Now that it is getting cold here in the south, I was looking at adding a new service to my area. DO any of you offer snow removal and ice prevention to your commercial customers? If so I have a couple of question to ask.

    1. Do you do any type of contract or written agreement? If so how is it worded.

    2. What do you as far as service, Like do you go before the ice and put out some type of liquid brine? Then go back and remove the snow?

    3. And how do you charge? Is it per service ?

    As you see I have no idea how I need to get started doing this right. I thing it will work in my area,because no one really does this. I know the business want it done if just for the liability for them. Any and all info is great appreciated.
