When To Pick Up Your Snow Stakes From Properties

driveway markers on islandLet’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. reflective driveway marker

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.

These pictures show Alma, the Wahlberg matriarch, testing out our driveway markers and basically agreeing that they are the best fiberglass marker on the planet. Ok, maybe it doesn’t show that, but you can see our trademark 9″ reflective tape that distinguishes us from any snow marker company in North America.

How To Use Snow Stake Install Tool and Should You Order It?

snow stake install toolAt Discount Snow Stakes we pride ourselves in the quality of our fiberglass. It is extremely flexible and durable. For this reason, it is easy and safe to install your driveway markers with a simple hammer or rubber mallet. Customers Sometimes tell me that if the weather is warm enough and the ground is soft enough, that they can even push the snow markers right in.

With all this being said, we also offer a high quality steel snow stake install tool. The marker installer has a pointed end to puncture the ground and create a hole. On the top of the snow stake installer, it has a hollow end. After you put the hole in the ground, you simply turn the installer over and use it as a slide hammer.

We get so many questions on how the tool works that I wanted to create a video to show you how easy it is to use to install your driveway reflectors. If you have any questions, as always, don’t hesitate to ask.

What Our Snow Stake Competitors Wish You Didn’t Know

snow plow trucks snow removalI found this lil snip it i wrote on www.plowsite.com in 2011. Still true! Not one edit :)

When getting ready to stock up on your snow stakes for the season, sometimes it’s a lot easier to shop around a few places and go with the cheapest option. Unfortunately, going with the cheapest option can actually cost you money in the long run. Here are a few things to consider when choosing what snow markers you will use for the upcoming season:

Cap - Our caps are hard plastic, they protect the snow stake from fraying and are much more durable than a rubber cap. Also, they don’t rust like metal caps do and won’t scratch plow trucks

Fiberglass - We have the highest grade fiberglass available, it is able to maintain rigidity but also, you can flex it in a full “U’ as seen in our video.

Variety -
 We have 4 different sizes, and 4 different colors for our driveway markers. Anything our customers need, we get for them

Price - We are always priced below our competition. Be sure to ask what diameter snow stakes are when getting quotes, also, check with suppliers that the stakes being quoted have cap and tape. Often, you will get a lower quote for a cheaper driveway stake. Quality and durability are what really save you money in the long run. That’s what Discount Snow Stakes Offer

Service -
 We go above and beyond for all of our customers. Whatever you need, we provide. Visit our site and social media links below. We look forward to becoming business partners!
