1. The Meeting and Proposal

We want you to understand exactly what services James Martin Associates proposes to perform so you can make an informed decision. We will:

  • Meet with you on site to identify your needs
  • Measure and document every inch of your property
  • Prepare and present a proposal for your evaluation and acceptance

Some of the key things to consider when preparing to meet with us are:

  • At what accumulation level of snow do you want your site to be serviced?
  • Do you want ice mitigation services for the walks and/or lots on your property?
  • Are there specific locations you would like the snow to be piled?
  • Do the public/city walks need to be cleared around your property?
  • Any other special requests or concerns you may have for your property

Our standard contracts run from October through May and are billed per occurrence. We understand the Chicago climate can be less than predictable and don’t want you to have to pay a bill if no snow occurs that month.

We also offer the option to sign up for our services for 3 years, locking in the price for the second year and helping you to save some money as well as the hassle of finding a new provider every year.

2. Preparing To Manage Your Property

Once you’ve chosen James Martin Associates, we will prepare our team and procedures in accordance with the parameters of your contract. We will:

  • Train our drivers on safety and performance issues specific to your site
  • Place site-specific notes and aerial images in each driver’s route book
  • Provide you with secured online access to detailed snow season event history

3. Keeping You Informed 

During the period of 12-24 hours before a storm arrives in the Chicago area, we are monitoring reports from multiple sources.

Based upon these reports, we will prepare and send an email to our customers with our “Forecast and Plan” for how we will provide snow and ice management services.

Contact Us to Schedule a Consultation

4. Proactive Forecasting

When the forecast calls for snow, we’ll be driving past your site for a first-hand look. You’ll get an email alert when we’ve made the decision to start plowing your property.

Throughout the storm, Area Managers will check in with your assigned crews to ensure the timely completion of your property’s snow management.

After our drivers have been dispatched and have performed your customized services, we’ll inspect your site to ensure our performance met the quality standards you were promised.

5. Post-Event Communication

Shortly after the winter storm has ended, we’ll send you accumulation totals for your property. If the weather demands it, we will notify you and redeploy our crews overnight to prevent any freezing that may occur from daytime melting or snow drifts.

For your convenience, we’ll have final billing details ready within 48–72 hours.
