Professional Snow Plow and Removal Service for Southeast Wisconsin

Plowing in MilwaukeeWinter in Wisconsin means lots of snow and snow plows. All snow plow drivers hired by the state of Wisconsin are required to have a Commercial Drivers License (CDL). Many cities also have their own snow plow fleets. Their priority is to remove snow, deice, and lay down salt on public roadways. Loomis Landscaping offers professional snow plowing and removal for private roads, driveways, and commercial parking lots.

Depending on your location, there are specific snow plow and removal regulations you must know.

Plowed Milwaukee RoadCommercial Snow Plows Let You Focus on Your Work

When it’s snowing, shoveling an entire commercial parking lot by hand is not how you should be spending your day. Loomis Landscaping will plow snow from your property so you can focus on your own work. If you have a small lot with limited parking spaces, we recommend our snow removal service as well. We also provide deicing of sidewalks and pathways to keep people safe from ice.

Every winter, businesses across Wisconsin are left in a panic when the first heavy snowfall hits and they realize all the snow plows are already booked. Schedule snow plowing and removal from our company before the snow falls.
