Thank you Highlander Harris

During the bad snow storm on Jan. 7 we became stuck in a snow mound on Schrock Dr. while trying to check on a furnace for a friend. I tried calling AAA for 45 minutes only to get a busy signal. I have a heart condition and cannot be in the cold for long. The only thing I could think of was to call Scott from Highlander Harris. He plows out our development and I thought maybe he could help us. 

I explained the situation to Scott and he was there in 15 minutes, plowed the snow away and helped push us out. The bill was minimal, way beyond fair. I tried to get reimbursed for the bill from AAA since they were not available but they wouldn’t reimburse us. That was the end of AAA for us. We are very thankful for Highlander Harris because they actually care. Thanks, Scott!

Signed,
Linda and Peter Neura
