About Arctic

What Sets Us Apart?

What We Are

A snow removal company that owns and operates its own equipment and maintains long term relationships with its clients.

  • An industry leader
  • The largest private snow removal fleet in the country.
  • New onsite dedicated equipment yearly.
  • Not routed, you will always be first.
  • A company that maintains total control.
  • Sole commitment to the snow industry. Twelve month investment in facilities, equipment and people. True skin in the game.
  • Efficiency is our focus. Truck plows are too cumbersome and slow   especially in modern parking lots where they encounter obstacles like islands, cart corrals and handicap parking signs. Every minute of equipment time is costly.
  • No heavy salt applications. The Sectional Sno-Plow™ only takes one pass to scrape away snow and ice from the pavement. No plow trucks are needed to re-plow, and salt expenses are reduced.
  • Arctic's construction grade equipment ensures that parking lots are plowed on time after a blizzard event. Let Arctic put its heavy iron to work for you.
  • Guaranteed salt supplies. Using our own semis running from our own salt domes means our salt is available for use 24 hours a day. We stock two seasons of salt to ensure that you will have a safe site free of slip and falls.
  • Let Arctic's efficiencies save you money, call today!

What We Are NOT

  • A company that sub-contracts work and has no control.
  • A company with a business model that says: "its cheaper to salt repeatedly, rather than to pay costly sub-contractors to plow". This model cost customers money and results in needless salt damage.
  • A company that offers unrealistic rates to get the contract because they have nothing else to offer.
