Just curious. Seriously thinking of moving to Greenville next summer. And I am inquiring if anybody there does commercial snow removal and for the few snow events you get, are businesses wanting it. I am just wondering if it would be worth it to bring my plow and salter with me if I do move there???

NO. When it snows no one goes anywhere until it starts melting.

Watch our weather for the next few days. Notice all of the closings that are posted.

Many landscaping companies do snow removal.

It doesn't snow too often here and it's on only a small amount if it does from what I've heard. Although, this week they are calling for a significant amount. You might want to head this way. LOL

Sounds like it might be something to think about, about bring stuff with me. Definitely will be doing a little more research before I do though

You can't plow a dusting...

My driveway was 1/2 mile long when I lived up north, and the first thing I sold before moving was my Jeep and snow plow.

So far since moving here, all I have seen is a light dusting or two and they melt right away. We are supposed to get some snow in two days (today it was 60 degrees) and I believe this winter is seen as very bad/unusual for the region. I have not even touched a snow shovel or an ounce of salt so far this winter. Personally I would sell off the snow removal equipment - it would be a pretty expensive yard ornament down here..

It's worth the research - a few places must remain accessible: hospitals, fire stations, etc. Every 2-5 years, there is a snow worth plowing. Plan on having the equipment remain idle for a year or more between uses.

I plan on using my wide garage broom to 'shovel' any snow!
