Cool I am confused

After joining this forum,about a month ago,and reading hundreds of posts i cannot see why any one would work for these Nationals/regionals I went to a chamber of commerece meeting where i met a couple of people in the Real Estate business and a few contractors.I offered my services to them and bingo we have done twelve jobs for three different companys already,my terms are simple, after the job is done payment is due.I am doing trash outs for $25.00 a yard With a six yard minimum,I have been paid for every job we have done,A little extra i throw in We preasure wash the entrance door way and side walk up to the door they love it.Who needs the B/S with the Nationals?

If you can get it, go for it.!


Its not always available in all areas like that.


I've been to many chamber meetings.

I got one guy's house and his restaurant property maintenance work.
Thats nice, but it doesn't work the same for every one.
Obviously you were in the right place at the right time.

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.

I'm not negative, I'm realistic.

Your debris minimum is a good idea. I've had many an order in years past where the debris totals didn't cover the cost of disposal or labor.

Mike The Broom....I believe that is what most refer to as "growing you business"
We also have started to move our business model towards private parties and organizations outside the PP industry....
It will be a bit before the nationals find out just how bad they cut their own throats by low-balling the fees in the quest to be the best asset management company in the nation....as the saying goes...
You get what you pay for....
Sooner or later they will have to pay for what we need to get what they want.....

re

I'm sure part of it depends on where you live, the nationals tend to have one size fits all pricing. So in North Dakota where you can dump a 15 yd trailer for like $40 its easy to do $25/yd. It costs me about $15/yd to dispose of standard debris here before fuel and labor and discount.

$150 for two guys and a truck doesn't net much after you break it down---That is if your running a legitimate business with GL, WC, Com Auto Ins.
Figure in you and your guys wages + fuel, maintenance, dump fees, etc.
You might break even......
