I hired Nick

to plow the driveway and parking lot of my commercial building in the winter of 2012. I called him in December 2013 to find out if he wanted to continue to plow it in 2013. He never called me back. I saw him plowing the driveway and parking lot next door to my building one day and I asked if we wanted to continue to do mine. He said yes and he plowed the driveway and parking lot that day. During the next snowfall I cleared the snow from the driveway and I left him a message telling him that I still needed the parking lot plowed. He did not plow the lot and he did not return my call. I know a lot of folks don't check their voice mail, so I sent him a text message. No response. I ended up clearing the lot myself with a snow blower. Two voice mail messages, two text messages and two messages through his website later and I have still not heard from him.
He did a god job last year, but I need a contractor who will return my calls.

When he answered the phone, he was short, unfriendly, difficult, and unprofessional. After trying to communicate for a couple minutes, I commenting on his reluctance and unwillingness to be helpful, and ended the conversation. I also called 10 other companies for snow removal off Angie's list, and received great service and willingness to help, even from providers who could not meet my needs. I was very surprised at his comparable rudeness.
Disappointing; I would not recommend this company.

They've done good work and been quite responsive. All prior work has been charged for on a per incident basis. After the first few years we were with them, their basis for setting fees became transparent--this put a stop to some minor charging squabbles which occurred early on in our relationship. They have announced they are going to an annual fixed-price (with an escalator clause to cover years with more than 70 inches of snow) in the future which will raise our cost tremendously (about 60% above the average of the past six years), while saving them billing costs. So far they have refused to discuss moderating this price increase with us. We will have to look elsewhere for future service.

They did an okay job. Not sure if they were expensive, if that is the going rate, or if it was just a snowy winter. They'd be worth giving a try. I moved to the east side and am going to try to find someone on this side of town for snow removal this year.

called me back promptly after leaving him a message. He arrived right on time for our scheduled meeting for an estimate. He was extremely polite and professional. He also brought a contract with him for me to review, where other business representatives were not that prepared. I decided to go with another company but

called within ten minutes of my leaving him a message.
He arrived at the scheduled time we had agreed upon to provide me with an estimate for snow removal for the winter.
He also made suggestions and provided important answers to questions I had not even thought to ask -- such as coming back to clear the driveway from snow after the city trucks had been through. What a great service!
Very professional and with his rapid response it didn't take much deciding after meeting with

to know that my snow removal worries were going to be a thing of the past.
I requested a contract for the 2013/14 winter season.

does both the landscape maintenance and the snow removal on our small commercial property. We switched a couple of years ago from a large local competitor because of the price, and we have been very happy with the service.

Landscape maintenance is done on a regular schedule with no effort on our part. They do everything in the contract, including clean up every time, and the place always looks decent. (Not "amazing" because we chose not to pay for that level of service!) They also periodically make recommendations - with estimates - for additional services, but never pressure us if we don't accept the recommendations.

Snow removal is always done before our business hours, or during the day if snow gets deep. I was a little worried about the capabilities of a smaller company to keep up with unpredictable snow fall, but we have never had a problem. They were willing to work with us to keep as many parking spaces open as possible, and are much more respectful of our landscaping/parking barriers than the previous company was.

For both services we have made occasional special requests and they were handled promptly. I also get occasional phone calls from José just checking in to make sure everything is OK. We are certainly one of

Horrible, horrible company--in particular the front office. Outrageous prices for nominal service. Here is one little example: they charged $200 to trim two bushes in the front yard. $200! This "service" was performed twice per year. Clearly they were taking advantage of my mother, who was ill and unable to move around much. When I called the front office and mentioned that the lawn did not look at all like it was being professionally maintained, I was treated with disrespect. I insisted that someone come out and look at the lawn, etc. Once there, I questioned him about the recent $200 bill for a

trimming of two bushes (only two--that's $100 per bush for 5 minutes "work") and his only answer was "that is the price she agreed to pay". Absolutely despicable. Over the course of a few years they charged my mother thousand's of dollars for such "services". When I pointed out the shoddy appearance of the lawn itself--supposedly maintained by

's, he said they did only what was in their contract. His

throughout our five minute "meeting" was arrogant and dismissive. Zero professionalism. Zero trustworthiness. I fired them immediately and hired someone else who does twice the work for half the cost--and is pleasant to deal with!

I would never hire this company again, or even let them near my yard even for free.

We had contracted out with this company for many years for snow removal. Until the last two years they were very good; very prompted and careful. The last two years we were not very satisfied. While previously they would have our sidewalks and driveway done early in the morning, this year we often waited for half a day or a day for the removal. We had asked to be placed high on the priority list as we live near a school. We were concerned with little kids falling (and us getting sued) if they had to navigate the snowy and slippery walks. We called and made this request. They responded but the next snow fall they were again late. In addition, they were not very careful; they damaged the garage door frame and also rode the plow over the

of the lawn. Needless to say we will be contracting out with another firm next year.

Very professional, very nice people. The only problem was the price. Delivered plans on time and to spec, but we chose not to have them do the implementation.
