Winter Storm Services - Customer Feedback

Snowy streets

We received lots of positive feedback regarding our snow and ice services performed during this last snow storm and would like to share a few comments:

"Thank you for your great proactive service and for keeping us informed of the costs."

-Kim Schoenfelder of KG Investment Management

"I just want to tell you how pleased I was to hear that your crew didn't come out earlier (per your broadcast email) I didn't think there was enough snow to warrant it. So first of all...good call (plus security said response time was great [after they called in for services.]) Secondly, thanks for laying down minimal amount of gravel. Three... Thanks for the branch cleanup. The campus looks a hundred times better without all the limbs scattered about. Really appreciate the care."

-Jennifer Otterness of Novellus

"The parking lot and sidewalks seem to be very well taken care of this morning. Thanks!"

-Rick Lauricella of Acumed
