Snow and Ice Management


What is a snow and ice management you ask? It is the combination of all business practices and operational procedures used to prevent or mitigate the effects of snow and ice accumulation on a site or set of sites. Cal & Shan’s is a company that helps you manage your risks and minimizes your liabilities against accidents and lawsuits. The days of just plowing a parking lot are over. The industry is changing and technology is on the forefront.

Here at Cal & Shan’s snow is the other half of our business, not just to keep us busy during the off season like other companies. We have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in equipment and technology to set us apart from other companies. Our fleet consists of plow trucks, dedicated salt trucks, front end loaders, skid steers and side walk crew truck/trailers. We use GPS technology to follow our crews and to provide customers with accurate time stamps and billing. We can handle any commercial and industrial property you might have.

We understand that all of our customers’ needs may be different from each other’s so that’s why we tailor each of our contracts to the customers’ needs all while working within their budget. We offer a wide variety of contract types, seasonal, multi-year seasonal, per push, per hour and event all while achieving zero tolerance for snow and ice.
