January Services Game Plan

Posted on Monday, January 09, 2017 at 03: 41 PM by Kelly Dowell

Happy New Year !

We are very excited for the upcoming seasons at Dowco. Here is a quick look at the next services we have coming up. 

Snow and Ice

Last week we were hit with about 2 inches of snow in St. Louis, which was a simple cleanup. Around Christmastime last year, we experienced an unpredicted ice storm that caused thousands of vehicle accidents.

This weekend looks like we have another dangerous ice storm approaching. Our residential routes are full, and we have very limited availability still left on our commercial routes.

Video: Dowco's 2016 Year

Posted on Monday, December 19, 2016 at 02: 41 PM by Kelly Dowell

The winter season is a magical time of year.

It's a time for giving and receiving, a time to remember others less fortunate than us, and a time to enjoy family, friends and colleagues. 

The spirit of the winter season also gives us the opportunity to reflect on all that we've been blessed with. I believe it's important to share this with all of you - clients, friends, prospects, family, email subscribers and co-workers because each of you have made a significant impact towards Dowco. 

Check out this video of the work we did this year and the fun we had along the way! I hope it inspires you to set your sights even higher next year, to love more and achieve more.
