Private snow removal service available to Weybridge residents

Concerned about shoveling snow from the driveway this winter? In years past, some Weybridge residents have worked with Tom Wiseman (and Jim Severance before Tom), who can provide privately-paid plowing and shoveling services.

As a courtesy to our Weybridge neighbors, here are Tom’s services and options:

  • For existing customers, snow clearing services are $20 per driveway from 2-4 inches; $25 from 4-6 inches; $30 over 6 inches
  • If you contact Tom to plow on the snow event day, the cost is $30 and he’ll plow after he finishes plowing existing customers
  • Service includes shoveling walks to the front door
  • Tom shows up automatically after 1.5 to 2 inch snow events
  • Plowing services start after snow stops falling, and Tom will plow/shovel again after accumulation of an additional 2 inches of snow

He uses a Grasshopper with plow and rubber wheels. To arrange service:

Thinking of selling your home? You can let your neighbors know via the Weybridge website / email list.

As home sellers across central Ohio know, it’s a hot market. Prices are up, and new homes don’t stay on the market long, if they even make it to market — many homeowners make private sales before being listed. Weybridge homes have been selling in less than a week in the last couple years, and the trend doesn’t look like it will let up anytime soon.

If you’re thinking of selling your Weybridge home, we’d be happy to post a note about it on the Weybridge website, which also emails most residents. You might find a private buyer without even listing on a real estate exchange, possibly helping out a fellow Weybridge resident along the way.

To share your interest in selling your Weybridge home, you have 2 options:

  1. Fill out our Contact Us form
  2. Send email to weybridgeweb@gmail.com

Be sure to include your name, preferred contact info, your home’s address, and any other notes, photos, or other items you’d like to see posted to the website. We’ll take your information and share it on weybridge-hoa.com as a new post, which will also email all our website subscribers.

Here’s hoping you don’t sell or move anytime soon! But if you must, feel free to let us know and we can spread the word to other residents.
