How low can you go?

Work orders mainly consist of
***Basic lawn cuts(initial and reoccurring)$15.00 to $25.00 per cut
***Bush/Tree trimming $10.00 per trim
***Debris removals / Trash outs $10.00 per cubic yard
***Lock Changes $10.00
***Winterizations $20.00
***Show removel $20.00
If you have lawn care/landscaping experience, all the tools and equipment necessary to do the work with reliable transportation & must have digital camera with time and date stamp and computer with high speed internet, we have work for you. If interested, reply with your name, email address, & phone number and county you can work .


This is a 1099 Position With payment on the week of the1st and 15th of the month
found this craiglist link on Property Preservation US . Any body that signs up with these Yahoos deserves to go bankrupt. This is just totally reprehensible.

re

The only thing on that list that you MIGHT be able to make money on is the lawn cuts, and only if you are in a town where you can bang out 30 or 40 x 1/10 acre lots within a 20 or 30 mile radius. Once they add in the required interior inspection and property report (that you know they will) and spin the chargeback wheel you're screwed.


LOL @ $10/yard debris. We pay $12/yard just for disposal and we get a substantial discount because of our volume and relationship with our dump. Hell even in North Dakota where I hear you can get rid of household for $6/yard you couldn't make money.
