Snow Survey Customer Quotes from VA, DC & MD <ul><li>“ Their communication has been exemplary. It's been fantastic. We are hoping that our other contractors rise to the level of service that we've gotten from them. And they're consistent in their communication. So it's been great.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ They are very easy to get in touch with. They send photos. They know the property well because they landscape there. And overall it's been a very good experience” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Well, they give us e-mails with weather updates. So we know by receiving those that they are on top of the snow removal they will have to do as a result of the weather.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ They're proactive in the sense that they provide AccuWeather reports on pending snowstorms. They give you a heads up if something is coming.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Thanks to VC for keeping Tipperary plowed. Fairfax County Fire was at a residence on Waterford removing someone by ambulance this morning.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ My wife and I want to thank you and your crew for the excellent job you have done removing snow so far this winter.

Please pass the compliment on to all of your crew.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Just wanted to pass along that we have received several compliments regarding snow removal that occurred over the past few days. One manager even said it was the best snow removal she has ever seen. You have all done a fantastic job. Thank you very much.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Almost as soon as the last snowflake fell, they had a full crew and equipment out clearing the sidewalks. This property occupies an entire city block, and as of 7:30 pm already has all of its sidewalks and driveway cleared, all the way down to the pavement. Now that’s diligence!” </li></ul>
