Subbing certain initials out

I've been doing a good amount of Fnma work lately, and doing all the initials including sales cleans for Cyprexx. They are the most time intensive parts of our jobs, and require the least amount of equipment and skill. I'm trying to sub out the sales cleans to a dedicated crew. Anyone do the same? I'd like to 1099 them and pay per job flat rate, and let someone else decide how big a crew to run etc. any tips from someone that has already gone down this path? I'm thinking of holding pay for one week to be sure the quality makes it through BSO.

Let me know if/how you figure this out. It is my experience that the sales cleans are money losing propositions. If it wasn't for the debris removal packaged in, I couldn't afford the sales cleans. That's just my experience though. If you figure it out, I'm all ears.....

That's my problem. Can't pick the services I want. I can have a decent job that takes 8 hrs for a crew and makes $2000. Then the same crew spend 4 hours doing a $120 sales clean......

I'm not looking to profit on the sales cleans, if I get $120 ill pay the Sub $120 just to avoid us having to doit. I posted an ad and had a lot of response, and had one person come do a job the other day.

Just curious how to set up a contractor agreement, pay, etc.

I agree with BRADS, I'd love to sub out my maid services but the pay is just ridiculous unless you bundle it with locks, wint, debris, etc.

I think you are looking at this wrong, your crews will make so much money faster and better work being done without the sales clean... think it through and tangle a carrot if 20 sales clean get rated 3.5 or higher.... communication with broker is so important for these folks, I could see paying a 1099 crew 250.00 per sales clean... its you rep on the line, if you can't afford it you just aint got the volume and don't want any part of doing a sales clean... fair enough

renegotiate the package or drop it its a known issue the sales clean rarely is profitable and if it doesnt go perfect the whole deal is kicked back
kick back and rebid period

Andrews..."That's my problem. Can't pick the services I want"

But you can pick the serivces you want to perform. The Profitable ones.

If they are not making any $$$ why in the world would you do them. Operating at a loss on work eventually will eventually catch up with you.

I break every service down and with everything that is required on a sales clean/initial maid/janitorial...what ever you want to call it is a losing service. As stated by others if it wasn't part of a bundle I would not do them...We routine bill $275 for our "Platinum Janitorial" service. never a complaint from our customers...
But is relation to this industry....I'm not quite sure who came up with the number 125 for a 300 dollar job...sorta like 50 feet of snow 6 inches deep....the idiot that came up with snow removal fees for this industry never had a snowshovel in their hands....
