screwed by safeguard

I recently was coming on board to safeguard to do p&p for a zone that is 45 miles away. Had a crew set up and ready to go. My uncle lived in the town where the zone was based so it was no problem covering it. Freak lady told me I need "approved" insurance and fill out all these papers. Got the insuranc and ppw into yoy and had numerous discussion s about the work and I thought we were good to go. She even sent me a vendor code and everything and then what you know I call her today to see where we are for doing the training amd bam im told "its company policy that we keep a sole prop vendor no more than 30 miles from there base" what bs that is. I cover 2 grass zones for them now that is as far as 60 miles away and I personally know one of thier biggest vendors in Florida , American Mortgage Services out of Port Orange, that is a sole prop but covers zones up to 120-200 miles away. If this is company policy why the hell is that outfit getting the work.
What a$$holes. If I wasnt cutting 500 lawns a month for them I would tell them to shove it. Anybody else get the run around with these jerks similair to my issue or has an opinion that would like to share?

Cutting 500 lawns-why do you NEED more? Why would you take on an extra 200, 300, 400 lawns if you aren't making profit with current volume?

Spend $200 and switch to an S corp. You just spent more than that on insurance.

Yeah, profit on SG grass cuts is slim to none so it makes perfect sense that you'd want to grab P&P. Go online and get yourself a corp or LLC right now. Seriously takes no time and can have your whole issued resolved by tomorrow.

Painless.

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.

If I remember right their fee was $100 over what my state fees were. $199 seems to be stuck in my head.
Any way to me that was a small price to pay for having it all handled the right way the first time.
