We have our trailer stored at a new Self Storage facility near our home. On Monday I went to check on the trailer after Snow Storm Nemo. I was shocked to see that they had ploughed/dumped snow onto the trailer. It was about 6' at the highest point. When the removed the snow I found a 3" dent in the skirting. The owner of the snow clearing company claimed it was a snow drift and that they hadn't dumped any snow at all on my trailer. I'm waiting to see what the storage company is willing to do to compensate. The dent isn't large but the trailer is less than a year old and otherwise undamaged.

Haven't lived in snow country in 17 years, but that is not a snow drift.

Snow Drift???? That's no snow drift. Keep those pictures, I suspect they will come in handy with your insurance company going after the snow removal service's insurance company (or your insurance company going after the storage facility insurance company going after the removal service insurance company). Have Fun

There may be a drift under the dumped snow, but that snow up against your trailer was dumped there!

Snow drifts are smooth...



What you are showing is not a 'drift'. Looks like 'plowed snow to me.'
This is Plowed Snow..

Some people just don't care. I worked with a girl who was on this tree planting committee for the town we live in. When I seen where she had the trees planted between a street and a parking lot just down the road from us I told her not to expect to see them in the spring. So right. Guys moving snow have only one initiative. Move it and get onto the next job.

The "drift" contained a lot of rocks and other stuff. I asked them how they the snow was removed and they didn't know. They could have hit the trailer with a shovel. They weren't carefull when they ploughed it - they probably weren't that carefull when they removed it.

The manager of the storage facility kept calling it a tiny dent, hardly noticable. I kept thinking what if someone had dented his car - would he be happy? He told me a couple times that they don't inspect the trailers when they move in so they don't know when the damage occured. He even suggested that it was possilbe the wind pick up a rock and it dented the trailer weeks ago.

In the end I'm sure they'll make things right. I don't want to go the insurance route. Of course I could file a Hit & Run complaint against the snow plough company. Don't think it will come to that.

Be sure to take images of the other "snow drifts" or lack of, all over the yard.
Do this before your evidence melts away.
