    1400 driveways x min $200= $280,000. Pretty good scam, just have to change company names every year. Grandview, maybe I am from Ottawa?

    That's the craziest thing I've read in a long time. I wish the article would've stated how many accounts he's successfully serviced in previous years. 1400 is an incredible number of clients to service and it doesn't sound like he's got the equipment to do near that amount.

    Hahaha, that Tony guy is definetely a crook ! I'm from Ottawa & all you here about in the snow bizz down here is how bad he is. He keeps coming up with the most awkward excusses, but it doesn't seem to bother him I guess??? Actually, in total he has 4000 snow clients. CBC did a report on him last year for the same crap he pulled off. Check it out on YOUTUBE under Tonys snowblowing.

    Ok, so @ four thousand snow clients, if one equipment operator looks after 50 clients in an area, that means Tony would have to have 80 tractors & operators!! Thats some serious equipment fleet....but the problem is he doesn't have that!!!:dizzy:

    What a P O S this guy is. I wouldn't be surprised if his equipment did get sabotaged-by his customers. He is a disgrace to the industry.

    Wow, 4000 clients sounds like an amazing feat! He must have had an entire team of salespeople alone, not counting the actual snow remooval workers and book keepers! :eek:

    And up until a few years ago he had absolutely no complaints! Sounds like somebody like a son took over the profitable business and ran it into the ground... payup

    Here TODAY, gone TO MAUI.
    What a jerk :angry:
    Quite a scam, sounds like $800,000 a year he's trotting off with, but what goes around comes around eventually.
