SnowIce Mgtmt_350px wide.jpgA strategic, proactive approach to snow and ice management is essential to operating efficiently, and helps ensure companies are prepared for unexpected changes in the weather.

EFS operates from one coast to the other and is equipped to handle virtually any commercial snow and ice removal job that arises.  

Prompt and reliable, our team makes sure that even the things you can’t plan for won’t slow you down.

Our complete commercial snow removal services include:

  • Snow Plowing
  • Hand Shoveling
  • Snow Hauling
  • Ice Management

We leverage our network for savings.

At EFS, we know that saving time and money are two of the most important things we can offer.  We can self-perform in some parts of the country, and in areas where that’s not an option or for certain types of portfolios, we can leverage our buying power and nationwide network of vendors to offer serious cost savings.

EFS provides 350,000+ snow services to nearly 20,000+ properties annually, managing 900,000+ service calls through our centralized service center.

Unmatched Snow & Ice Management Knowledge

EFS professionals have studied the mechanics of snow behavior— how it melts, the consequences of freezing, and the effect that moving and removing snow and ice has on waterways roadways, parking lots, and other infrastructure—and can make decisions on how to effectively, safely, and conscientiously move snow and ice.

Solutions that are truly customized.

Every site EFS works in is different, which is why every snow and ice management program needs to be tailored as such. We customize every plan after we’ve walked your site, learned about your pain points, and established a partnership.

We then offer flexible pricing options so you can choose whatever works best for your business. Options include:

  • Event Pricing
  • Push Pricing
  • Fixed Seasonal Rate

Snow & Ice Management Case Study

Problem
The 2014 snow season was rugged, often dangerous, and, in hindsight, historical. During the season, many businesses were without power, often left in darkness and without plowed parking lots or with dangerous icy build-ups.

Solution
EFS leveraged their experienced supplier network in the North to ensure they had the heavy equipment and salt needed facilitate solutions for customers in the South. We mobilized suppliers from New York and Ohio to successfully support more than 100 customer sites in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Georgia.

By anticipating salt shortages, EFS used its buying power to procure 300+ tons of bulk salt from as far as 700 miles away. We also facilitated direct delivery to EFS subcontractors for EFS customers, even when it was unavailable to all other contractors.

By utilizing the financial stability of our parent company, EMCOR Group, Inc., we were able to arrange advantageous financial arrangements with suppliers to further facilitate cooperation and make these steps possible.
