removing boats and debris

Hey ! A sub of safeguard sent me an order recently that stated to remove 87 ext cy and 50 int cy, however upon arrival at job there was no interior debris as the pre vious contractor threw it outside. Told client this and he stated to remove all debris. He only wants to pay for the 87. Cy not the additional 50 cy. Another issue was that a boat was on site. On original order there was no additional line item for boat removal. Client is saying a boat is debris, however a boat is a registered vessel not a car part. Please give me your thoughys.

If these aren't your bids, don't complete the work. I wouldn't remove the boat unless the work order specifically lists it and includes a VIN number or registration number on it. Get clarification if the boat must be stored and if so, for how many days. Make sure you CYA

EXACTLY on the CYA. It is personal property and make sure there is a personal propertry release with each work order. Additionally make the 80 dollar investment and back up back up back up every piece of info on all properties and communicate via Email as much as possible so the I did not say that issue can be proven that yhea you did. REBID is 100% on target and advisable with it stating with boat to be removed or have it impounded by a tow company and let them hastle it out. NO PERSONAL PROPERTY CLEARENCE NO START WORKY.

told the client we did not remove the boat because the boat is personal property and not debris. He says the job isnt complete because we didn't remove all debris. Boat not listed on WO. You guys can look below.
Anyone want to see the pics and give me an estimate on the CY amount they would say?

If it is not your bid you are not obligated to honor the bid sent...period...
There is absolutely no justifiable reason to do so...

The guy is going to invoice SG for the 50, but not pay you for the 50. A skeptical mind is a terrible thing to waste. lol


Sure post up some pics. Every body loves pics, that why we all take so many.

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 got a bad feeling this is going to turn into an expensive learning experience for you.

Me personally, I would have called from the site and state that the interior debris was thrown in the yard. Without a POC for the total amount of debris, I would have rebid and the job and billed for a trip charge. I hope you have a GREAT relationship with the Regional because when Screwguard sticks them, they're probably going to stick you to......

Exactly Brad, I might have even taken all new pics showing current property condition and rejected the w/o as not my bid and submitted a new bid.
