We live in a row of townhomes. We hired Oasis Complete Landscaping and Snow Services to remove the snow out front. They came by with a 4-wheel drive truck. They didn't shovel the sidewalk along the street. Instead, they drove their truck onto it, and ploughed the sidewalk.
I'm not sure if they're licensed for that, or even if it's legal. But it does create a mess where they drive up and over the snow bank. which they leave for the neighbours to clean up. When one of the neighbours asked their driver (Dave) not to do that, please -- not to drive his plough on the sidewalk like that, he received a rude reply.
The neighbour called the company, and spoke with someone who claimed to be one of the owners, but refused to give his name. The owner said he intended to continue driving the plough on the front sidewalk. He said there wasn't anything he could do about the mess it left behind, either, because he wasn't actually there, in person, to see it. (?)
So I decided to post this review. I'll forward a copy of it to my neighbours. I hope they agree with me, that we ought to be using HomeStars to find a better company.
If you are thinking of hiring Oasis, please be forewarned: they're inconsiderate, unprofessional and their owners have a preference for remaining anonymous. You might want to think twice about doing business with them.
