Junk Monkey Out of Michigan

We have been contacted by a company called Junk Monkey out of Michigan.

Red Flags:

  • The guy wants me to go through a sign up and application process before showing me pricing.
  • They claim to be a national but I suspect they are in fact a regional.
  • When he found out that we aren't just a mom and pop shop he became really evasive to questions.
Maybe I am just paranoid?

Paranoid?? maybe a little of getting jacked.



I wouldn't waste any further time with this company.
They don't sound on the up and up.

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.

Their name says it all. What national would have a name like that? He'll, what regional would?

I thought that as well.

We are trying to downsize from a regional to a local company in an effort to stop using subcontractors. I am trying to clean up my business and lose a few headaches. Most of my national clients have pretended to understand then basically cut or volume in half. At this time of year that hurts some.

To counter this we have gone back to advertising for Windows, Siding, and Doors. I am excited about getting back to remodeling and getting paid when we do a job. I want to make sure that we are still doing preservation work as well ultimately we should have a good blend.

I don't want to even screw with some half ass outfit again and no Nationals that want to dictate terms. After several years in the business we have kind of learned what we want and what we don't.
