Leaf Removal

I gotta hand it to SG, they try...to screw us.

Got this email, I have to admit, the sender was trying to be nice.

"FYI- Leaf removal is instructed in your work order. I will not open a
GCFU to send you back to remove the leaves because I would like for
you to get paid for all of your work. On your next GCL order, remove
the leaves from the yard and you can invoice 1 of 2 ways: 1. $12.00/
per CYD with photo's to support or 2. $2.00/per bag with photo's to
support."

GCFU? Forum rules prevent me from even guessing at what that stands for.

But, my real gripe with this is, $12.00 per cyd? It's an FHA property. We get $50 for debris, like trash and old toys. Why so much less for leaves, when I have to rake them up AND sack them to remove. $2 per bag? Hmmm, didn't say what size bag...I got a whole bunch of Wal-Mart bags under the sink...hmmm.

Anyways, its not gonna happen at those prices. We're going to negotiate.

Anyone else seen this?

I'm just shocked that SG is cutting grass! All their properties around here have 2-3' tall lawns.

Iíve already told you more than I know.

No kidding. They wanted me to go back to a property for the 3rd time to bid the grass. I told them forget it. You didn't want to pay me to mow it when it was 10 inches tall the first time. The second time it was 30 inches tall if I go back now you might be able to see the house.

Yes, it is short for a grass cut follow up. Actually you would recieve $1.50 per bag and $9 cyd.

This has been Safeguard's new rules since the first of April this year, so I'm surprised you're just hearing about it. And no, it would be $2 and $12 since their grass cut vendor network is flat rate with no discounts.

Some guys just think that there is so much money on the table in Preservation they just have to get out on their own. He used to complain about the prices as if he didn't believe they were that low. He couldn't do private work or construction for me because he didn't have the skillset. So now he is out there shlepping away for $25 maid service and $50 winterizations and complaining that they never send the correct amount on his checks and he can't cover his insurance premiums and fuel for the week. Once he hears he got shorted again, he's liable to just burn the leaves in the front yard and use that for his "during" pic.
