Safeguard

Has anyone received any work from via-safeguard on the west coast. I perform work for a a primary that was formerly under contract with BOA. I have not received lawn cuts, combos, CFK's in over a month. I was averaging between 10-15K per month before the change took place. Since they bought out BOA field services, it seems as though they are not releasing any work??? or am I just being lied to??? Who is servicing all the properties I did last month??

im here in florida and Im a SFG REO grass vendor. Around Nov 1. I went from appox 75 Properties to 175 and they were BOA properties. It seems that companies such as SCVMS, Qualified, Sentinel and who ever else was dependent on the BOA contract, lost propably 60-75 % of all their work. SFG is using there current vendors as the primary vendors and the former BOA vendors as back ups. Hopefully you have branched out and had more than 1 client (the BOA client). I have appx 6 and stay fairly busy these days.

Yeah Qualified, Sentinel and SCVMS probably lost more like 90% of their work, used to get 100+ orders a week and it has dropped a ton! Luckily I have other vendors or i'd be closing doors! Safeguard is a joke, i'm just waiting til BOA realizes this and starts sending it back!!

Have not been assigned a work order since end of Sept. Recieved work from a BAC vendor out of Salt Lake. They are getting some work, not much, a one man shop like myself is at the bottom of their list. Pretty much done with preservation. Doing some inspections, have a client with a portfolio of vacant lots I mow, that wont start till spring. Was not to excited about working for Safeguard anyway.

Sounds like the regionals got a dose of what some of us smaller outfits went through in 2008-2009 when many nationals jumped on with regionals.

I can assure you that I shed no tears what so ever if CVMS gets a good dose of the pounding they've dished out over the years.


Just goes to show that Karma is a B, and that what goes around comes around!!!!

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

SG bought the P&P arm of BOA. All the properties that BOA was maintaining, SG is now maintaining. I;m A SG vendor, our BOA work load has gone through the roof.

Safeguard has approached me to do some work for them. I am reading their reimburstment guidelines. The rates seem reasonable, but I am wondering how much they keep for themselves. Anyone have some input? I have a call Monday morning and would like as much knowledge as I can get.
