Sad day for US Best....

Hey here's an article and several have told me of this email....

It is with great difficulty that we are writing to you about the impending fate of U.S. Best Repair Service, Inc. becoming defunct. Although every employee/vendor separation is difficult, this situation is particularly distressing because you, individually, are not responsible for our reduction of work caused by Bank of America’s decision to essentially withdraw from the property preservation industry. We admire each and every one of you for your hard work and dedication to our company so far, and we had hoped to avoid becoming defunct by aggressively seeking new clients and by attempting to continue our relationship with BAC Field Services’ successor company, Safeguard.

Unfortunately, we are unable to see into the future and we do not know if our new clients will give us the volume necessary to support each and every one of you, or whether Safeguard will increa...se the volume of orders they give to us. Accordingly, we are giving you an advance, formal notice so that you can plan ahead for yourselves. I think all of us already had an idea this was coming with the drastic decrease in volume. But this now makes it official.

Our company has every intention of fighting hard for new clients, to improve our relationship with the clients we do have, and to keep this company as stable as possible for the many employees/vendors and their families that rely on it. It is our wish that we can save every one of our jobs in the coming months, but we must all plan ahead for every eventuality.

For (delete name) and myself, we have been given 60 days notice. If things do not pick up by April 12, we will eventually be laid off. So both of us are preparing accordingly. It has been a pleasure to work with each and every single one of you. All of you have made our preservation experience enjoyable to say the least. We wish you all the best of luck in your future endeavors.

I had not worked with these folks and I'm sure that everything was not pleasurable for all parties all the time but as I read the message I couldn't help but think two things. First how refreshing it is to learn that a regional actually communicates with it's contractors about things that impact their livelihood and shows some semblance of a "normal" business relationship. And secondly how sad it is that it stands out as extraordinary in this industry.

We attempted to work for a state coordinator at US Best named John Moon. We had many pay disputes after a few months and the answer we received even though we had emails, and pics to back up our claims were "john didn't have that authority" "John should never have told you that" "We don't pay that" of course John had been fired.

We lost a few grand on that one and sadly that was one of the cheaper lessons we learned.

Rule # 1 don't put all your eggs in 1 basket... sounds like this outfit did, and the eggs broke... to bad for them.

I have never had a problem with US Best. They are by far the easiest client I have ever dealt with. whatever price is on the work order is what I get paid and they pay me travel charges for many of my remote properties. I for 1 will be extremely sad to see them go.

Remember, this type of stuff wasn't happening 24-36 months ago. Look around you and recognize what is going on so you won't be sitting in the same boat they are.
