    That's all well and fine until you pay them $15000 and they never show up or they go out of business.

    If you are dumb enough to sign up for that contract you never should have had the money in the first place. The contractor must have taken a SIMA marketing class :D. Just kidding people!

    I just had to see it for myself :

    "THIS IS A LIFETIME OF SNOW PLOWING (UNLIMITED) AND SNOW BLOWING SERVICE FOR YOUR DRIVEWAY (UP TO 100') AND WALKWAYS (UP TO 100') AROUND YOUR HOUSE. UPON PAYMENT, A CONTRACT WILL BE SETUP AND EMAILED FOR APPROVAL. YOU WILL NEVER PAY FOR SNOW PLOWING AND BLOWING SERVICES AGAIN, EVER! GET YOUR HUGE TAX WRITEOFF NOW SO I CAN PAY MINE. (EAGLE COUNTY COLORADO ONLY)"


    It might be fine, just as long as there were a life insurance policy attached to it. I'd hate to see him fall off the edge of the mountain.

    I used to be a salesman for retail devices, and the term "lifetime" is limited to the reasonable expectation of the longevity of a product. In the case of plowing, that would be the fly by night taillight guarantee. That is, it is guaranteed until my taillights are no longer visible. Good luck to anyone who might consider this!

    For that to be legit you would have to put most of it in an escrow or something. What a joke, I should put together a package like that. I wonder how many people will bite on that deal. A seasonal with a 100' of drive and walks would be $1100? So that's 13.6 years of service that you'd be paying for on the front side not including any interest:laughing: Doubt this guy will be around for the first 13.6" of snow let a lone 13.6 years. I should run a similar ad

    If he gets one person to buy it I'd say he did pretty good.

    That's a pretty ridiculous eBay listing.

    I would like to see him prove shipping when the buyer files a Prey Pal claim to get his money back .
