Here is a link to a prior similar question with two responsesthat should help you -

I know in our area, for residential service (which takes second-billing to commercial year-long contract properties), the most reliable ones are the greenhouse and larger year-around landscaping companies that keep their experienced more senior summer workers employed year-around by doing snowplowing/shovelling. For the most reliable service, go with a company that has several plow trucks and operators so a heavy snow or truck breakdown does not putthem out of businessfor a day or two, get an annual flat-rate contract (or sometimes annual flat rate plus addition if more than a certain large amount of snow), and talk to the OWNER about getting priority put on your place due to residents being healthcare workers - especially if hospital workers. Many plow companies will put priority service in heavy snows (typically defined as more than 3-4 inches) on doctors, firemen, policemen, and hospital workers. Also, year-long contracts get priority over snowfall-by-snowfall calls from homeowners, because those are their dependable customers and already paid for.
