Let’s face it, the snow stake investment that companies make each year is significant. Smaller residential snow removal contractors are in the $500 range, while larger commercial companies can be over $5000. One of the many benefits of choosing a high quality fiberglass driveway marker over a cheap wood snow stake is that you can re use them year after year. Unfortunately, many companies don’t bother with the snow marker pick up process and throw away thousands each year.
March 15th to April 15th is the ideal window to pick up your snow stakes from all your properties. Depending on where you are geographically and what the weather patterns have been, this can obviously change pretty dramatically.
The main benefit of picking up all of your snow stakes at the end of the year is the saved money. From the polling that we do, Discount Snow Stakes estimates that 15% of driveway stakes will be lost to breakage and theft, so it is important to be vigilant in the pick up. Also, retrieving your snow stakes reduces overall fiberglass waste which helps the environment.
So if you haven’t picked your snow stakes up yet, get out there and get them so you save yourselves some money on product costs for next season.
