Real Testimonials


Testimonial #1 - Dear Steve,  Without your help I would have been at the mercy of a group of people who could care less about the damage they do to people’s lives.  There only agenda was to build a case, even to the point of pulling up some tile to check how old they were.  After you were done the letters kept coming, which you took care of.  The building is gone now, but it was year I won’t forget and the last year dealing with the last tenant.    Thanks to you,

William B. ,  Ewing, New Jersey

Testimonial #2 - I’ve done two jobs previously with Pioneer Environmental Group and Steve Jones and I was very satisfied with their work, with their service, with their pricing and promptness of delivery of the final product when job was finished.  I would highly recommend them for any environmental service needed.     

Paul C.,  Hamilton, New Jersey

Real Testimonials


 Testimonial #3 - Mr. Jones, You were so kind to a couple of “dinosaurs” who knew nothing and we know that you gave us the best possible advice you could under “iffy” circumstances and we realize that. You’re a good man, Steve Jones, and we thank you! If we happen to run across anyone who needs your kind of services, you’ll have our whole-hearted recommendation. We wish all the best to you and your family and all the success in the world for Pioneer Environmental.  

The Schmidts,    Wildwood Sunoco        

Testimonial #4 -  During the course of the construction of our Church addition, abandoned fuel oil tanks with contamination were encountered.  Pioneer managed the reporting and the tank removal and worked quickly so as to minimize the cost and schedule impact for the project.
