Plenty of inspectors here.
Safeguard is the walmart of inspections in determining price and expectations.
They pay anywhere from $3-$7 for a basic order scattered across whatever coverage zones they convince you that you accepted.
They are all rush orders. You take the RR4 Box 89 G 40 miles from every other inspection no ifs ands or buts.
Years ago, they accepted drive bys but if any part of the window or vehicle was in the photo or if it had motion blur, they would flag it and send you back.
That morphed annually into, as I was told, photos of three sides of the house, utilities, proof of occupancy or vacancy, photo thru a window, photos of postings, etc. It might as well be a paper route except you have to put the paper inside the door for each customer.
Yes, bashing Safeguard is justified.
They are not capitalists.
They are not a positive to the economy, just a parasite with leverage and influence.
