Just Mowed a Lawn At a Pile of Rubble

House burned down, the parts that were still standing were barely standing. Didn't even want to get close to the house. I called and they wanted me to mow it so I did. Had me remove 7 cubes of debris in my way too.
Haha, lot's of land though and I can understand why they want it mowed. Hope I get the debris removal for the house.

You got that right, That needs to be removed with a large loader..Too dangerous to be walking on/thru that. Bid accordingly with referance to the hazards/codes ect. Wording is what works here.

I got two quality control failures for not sweeping/mopping the floors at a house that was a little worse than that.

Couldn't gain access and wouldn't if we could. FAS called with an emergency rush on a friday about 5 p.m. I sent a crew 95 miles one way sat morning for securing, wint, yard, smokes, hazards, etc. Brick two story. The 2nd floor had collapsed into the basement. Fire had gutted everything. Couldn't get anyone on the phone. Ended up with a trip charge from FAS for me and a half days pay out of my pocket for three guys plus fuel, meals, etc. That was years ago when I was stupid enough to act on a phone call only.

I learn along time ago that nothing is an emergency! I alway go to any property before I send someone I`m paying! Some companies still can`t figure this out ,but I`m not sending employees to a property I do not know anything about! I love the message saying I should call from property for damages and approval to fix! My guys will report it to me and I`ll get it approved before it done! I know this it`s the fastest or best way todo things, but it keeps thing simple on my end and I not sending my crew on deadend job!

thats why I call the utilities ahead especially when going that far !. At leasty power would have been disconnected and you would have a heads up as to some thing is weird. I think we all have had those properties tho. Did one ina town that was 200 miles away and when on the way hoe FAS calls me with a wint IT WAS AN EMPTY LOY never built on. I pressured tham for a realtors number and the y reluctlantly gave it to me. BLOWS me away when the banks don't know what they own !
