The snow has returned to Northeast Ohio early this year… and sadly so have the snow plow scams. If you live in Solon or Twinsburg, Ohio (or the surrounding areas of Aurora, Glenwillow, Bedford, Hudson, Macedonia, etc.) you may very well have run across a scam. There is a company that is calling itself Got Snow? or Got Snow Services. They appear to offer snow removal services for residential addresses for a very reasonable price. Sadly, this is a COMPLETE SCAM that has been running for YEARS now.
Got Snow is at least the 3rd name this company has been known by. In 2008, I was taken by this scam when he was going by the name of The Snowplow Guys. You can read the full history here. In short, this company will take your money and never show up to perform the contracted work.
NOTE: I haven’t personally worked with this company since that winter in 2008. I always want to give people the benefit of the doubt, but I know this guy is still at it. I wrote a blog post in 2011 titled Empire Snow Removal – Solon, Ohio & Twinsburg, Ohio and another last year titled Got Snow? Snow Removal Scam. Both years I received SEVERAL comments and follow up emails that they were taken by the same company.
This year’s flyer was passed along to me by a fellow member of a Twinsburg Facebook group – Thanks Tricia! It doesn’t surprise me, but he’s not even updated his flyer from last year.

CONTRACT PRICE $
A local Twinsburg snow removal company (who’s been recommended over and over again) had this to say:
“Yeah, when the price is that low, he’s not showing up. As someone who does plowing, I can assure you that you get what you pay for. Under $200 for a season is not enough to keep that guy running into January.”
I’m putting these posts together to make sure that no one gets taken by the same scammer that I did. PLEASE, read this post and all of the comments. You’ll see YEARS worth of complaints for multiple company names (The Snowplow Guys, Empire Snow Removal and Natural Science Landscaping) under the company owner (a gentlemen named Randy).
The address of the company is below:
7655 Richmond Road
Solon, Ohio 44139
I’ve also seen it listed as:

There have been several phone numbers in use over the years:

Use this to complain to the county about him if you’ve been screwed over by this guy. Unfortunately he just doesn’t care about BBB ratings, etc. Total scam artist and I’m shocked he’s still operating years after we got scammed.
Hoping the IRS audits him eventually. I doubt he’s playing taxes on his scammed money. He also had a criminal record so I hope he gets tossed into prison where trash like him belong.
Horrible horrible horrible. Do not sign up with this company. Worst service ever.
Oh no… did you have a run in with him this year? I put up a post for this year here https://406northlane.com/2015/11/got-snow-2015-snow-removal-scam/ but hadn’t heard anyone with issues yet. Was hoping the relatively easy winter had screwed up his plans.
