New Safeguard Trashout Flat rate in SC

Hello, I've been doing Safeguard for 5 years. They have changed their Trashout pricing to a flat rate. 0 to 30 cubic yards are $325 minus 25% instead of the $32.50 minus discount. I can't make this work.

Are any others here doing trashouts for them in this area, and how is this working for you?

Suttons can you post a list of what that includes? It's not just trashing out the debris also includes a white glove cleaning doesn't it?

No, the Maid service is still $150 minus 25% discount.
Actually from my point of view, all the services related to the Initial Services are break even or even money losers, with the exception to the trashout (under old pricing), Handrails, Lawn work, and tarping. It was mostly the trashout pricing that made the entire job profitable.

With the new flat rate pricing of $325 for 30 yards or less of trash, we do make a little more money on 0 total trashouts, no change in rate at 10 cubic yards, 11 to 30 lose money all the way. At 31 cubic yards we can invoice an additional $27.50 minus 25%, per cubic yard over the the 30. Even this is a cut in the origonal cubic yard rate.

It is as much as a 50% cut in pricing.

Are there any more SG vendors on here that can comment. I'm also a Grass only vendor and refused to work at their suggested $28.50 per yard. They froze me out for over a month, but finally began to give me yard when all their other "cheap" vendors would not show up and complete work, or it was so horrible Safeguard new they would lose their client.

Are there any other SG vendors that have negotiated a different Trashout rate since the change a couple weeks ago.

By the way, this is only being done in about 5 states, mostly in the south. I think they are FL, GA, AL, NC, SC.

That is absolutely horrible. I sure good contractors will not stand for this and I hope SG goes out of business. Looks like they are already on their way with the lose of a major contract recently.
