New Safeguard Zones for GC Season and Conference Call

Yesterday, I was on a conference call with SFG. They have condensed the Grass zones in Florida to make the smaller. I covered a huge zone for them, which got turned into 5 zones. They ended up giving me 2 zones and after looking at 1 of them, quickly called them and said no way I'm driving 2 1/2 for $30 dollar cuts. She then placed us in the zone that covers where I live and my shop is. One of the nicest people over at sfg.
On this conference call they stated, we must take pictures of the bushes everytime at every house ! and that we can trim them also every trim.....I get more $$ trimming bushes then cutting the property !! Biggest issue I now have is that SFG wants debris removed by us depending on loan type if debris is present ( I do REO lawn cuts ) How the hell you expect me or my crew to remove debris larger than .5 cy when we are trying to get done 20 cuts a day with a 6x12 trailer with it full of lawn equipment????? Never got a reply back when I asked if we must take debris are we able to come back within 48 hrs with an empty trailer. WTF

Did they also tell you that all birds nest must be removed from the front porch area and any bee/wasps nests need to be removed from the windows and soffit areas as well? What about cleaning any glass on front doors or storm doors? EVERY CUT. Don't worry, It'll be on the "next" conference call. All for the low, low price of $30. No Thanks.....

I do 300 cuts per month for them. Just Me, my wife and a helper. My wife uploads to thier site during the day as I send her work directly from the field using Pruvan. Takes her 2-3 minutes an upload as they are just grass orders. Most people on here are regionals type owners who are getting the work from a national and passing it down as well, thats why they say $30 is low, but how much do they pass down to thier crews for ??
Residential lawns in my area are $20-40 and includes bushes and bullcrap from picky owners. I make alot more than my residential buddy who cuts 70 properties a week.

You are the first person in over 5 years that has stated 2-3 minutes an upload for this company...That's great when I keep jearing that you have to also do a PCR for any visit to a property that is SG's....with you only doing grass cuts this may not be a manditory thing for you but everyone else states it is....
That is great though.....perhaps your wife can put an article together and explian to everyone how to work their system???? Sounds like you guys have a pretty good system and your information could help everyone working with SG that has upload issues with their system.....

You are a special operator for sure.

Its very rare that bank work pays better than local work.
Sure ain't like that for me.

Plus I get paid sooner, sometimes with cash.

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.
