Watch out for this CL troller

Got on to CL this morning and saw an ad for property preservation. Now I know better but I emailed them anyhow(Works real slow here in CT). They called me up and gave the good old "were one of the leaders in the industry" lines and sent me over a new vendor pack.figured i post the numbers so we could all get a good laugh. For the New guys out there, BE SURE to read the contracts from these CL trollers, this company had hidden fees ($25 program fee, WC fees ECT) in their contractor agreement wich sounded more like a employee agreement

Pretty standard Regional pricing from what I've seen. Margins are pretty narrow all around. Take grasscuts, for example:

MCS recuts pay $60. Minus 25% discount is $45 to the Regional. $30 to the contractor leaves $15 to the Regional, who needs to take out his other costs.

The golden days are over, unfortunately. For everyone in this industry.

re

lol $120 for a sump, last one I did I think I spent about $85 for the pump and fittings.

Only thing not terrible on that list is dehumidifiers, $200 is reasonable
