Not recieving your own bids...

I kinda did a forum search on this topic, but all my key words are so common the list of posts was just too much.

How do you guys feel about receiving someone else's bid as a work order to complete. And, how do you feel about the reverse? Someone else getting your bid to complete?

SG has a nasty habit of doing this sort of thing. I know if I'm getting the other guys bids, he has to be getting mine at times too. My general rule is if it isn't mine, I send it back for re-assignment to the bidding contractor.

But, I don't think my compadre is doing the same. I am seeing more and more times when it gets to be a recut that the place has already been cleaned out. And I know I bid to do the clean out when we did the initial secure.

Well, personally, I think this is a flavor of fraud. And I don't remember signing anything that stated I agreed to this sort of thing. Opinions?

The work goes to Safeguard first and they assign as they see fit. If the bid is a good bid, we do it. If not, we negoiate. If that doesn't work, we tell them to reassign. That simple. We get a lot of our own bids, and a bunch of everyone else's to.

Debris removal, mowing, similar stuff, yes. Repair work, mold, no.

I get requests to fulfill others bids, but not work orders. They claim the original contractor is no longer with them. I tend to believe it because the calls come from the vender rep who is stuck with reassigning bids from their vendor list. When I was new to this I accepted another contractors bid and only got out of fulfilling it because I was in training. Now when I am asked to take another guys bid I require a 25 - 50 buck trip charge to decide if it is a job I'm willing to do at someone else's price. You would not believe how cheap some people are willing to work!
Are you sure they didn't provide a 2nd lower bid? I don't work for SG so I'm not sure if they get multiple bids.

I dont like other people getting my bids. I will not do anyone elses bids. In all honest some people just dont know how to do a proper bid. Also how many times has a regional or national changed a persons bid to a lower one and then that contractor flat out refuse to do it. And i wouldnt blame that contractor one bit.

If they change your bid, it is no longer your bid. Why can't they understand that? I've started adding a disclaimer to all of my bids and when it is reduced and I am told to complete or defend with new photos and details I quote my disclaimer and refuse. Unless, of course it is a great trashout full of tools and riding mowers and engine hoists and lathes...you know what I mean.

SG does it all the time, Five Brothers gets multiple bids and then takes the lowest. Today I got bid approvals for about 1/2 of the stuff I bid on an initial secure. Tree trimming, roof repair and a sales clean... I called my rep and asked her how was I supposed to do a sales clean as I haven't trashed it out yet? She comes back with "It was trashed out by another contractor a couple days ago". Really, and they didn't do a sales clean? I have yet to see this but it better be in broom swept condition...I think it's BS to not have the one that does the TO do the sales clean, no money in doing a sales clean correct.
I asked her Sooo, they came up with a lower cube count? she said yes the bank takes the lowest bid..

Not sure how some of the Nats handle bids but we have bid approvals quite a bit that were not the lowest, but the broker recommends us over the other guy. This is bypassing the middle men.

We had a grow house we bid over $7,000 to do initials on, including mowing the marijuana growing down one fence row that was planted by the LEOs that raided the place. It is where they dumped out all the flower pots.

My competitor won the bid for a little over $2,000.

The realtor was livid because she wanted me to do it and they reassigned it and she did not know about it until a few days later when I asked her how the cleanup was going.

My wife figures he will cut the grass one week and harvest the Grass the next week.
