We pay out for quite a few jobs that we get zero-billed on actually. Nationals will find any excuse not to pay a contractor for their work, from a single missing photo, to an ambiguous rule buried somewhere deep in a vendor-memo archive labeled ***dangerous virus do not click!!!!***
I spend most of my day going through and fighting charge backs and zero bills in an attempt to get paid for every work order our contractors have performed. We send our price list out to anybody who expresses interest in working for us, before asking them to waste time on a vendor app, and if they don't like the prices we shake hands and move on. No hard feelings.
I just can't imagine a full time contractor who's out in the field all day, coming home at night and working a full night arguing with clients over whether they will be paid for a grass cut that another company cut 25 days ago, because that cut was performed within a month of theirs. If I can't get paid for a job, but I know that it was done correctly, I will ALWAYS ensure the contractor is paid, even if we aren't.
Also so there is no confusion, a 100x150 lot starts at 30. If there is overgrowth, the contractor calls from site and names their price. The extra five only applies if it is our first cut at the property, and it is not more than 12 inches tall.
Say what you want, but if i was a contractor, I'd much rather work for Naaps than for safegaurd.
