No more beyond our scope?

Anyone else been getting the nasty grams and re-opened order from SG?

Seems they will no longer take "Beyond our scope" as an answer on damages. They are forcing us to provide bids, even on stuff we aren't qualified to handle. They're saying "Get a third party." which is BS, because all they will do is reimburse for the actual cost of the third party. And you have to provide an invoice from the third party. I don't see an incentive for us to go out and get a third party bid when we won't even be paid a trip charge.

Thoughts /opinions?

Scumbags! That's my thought and opinion of safeguard. One more reason among thousands I keep telling them I do not want to contract with them.

We just tell them no one wants to come out. Which they don't, because they never approve the bids. We already had a long discussion with our regional on this.

Think your missing the point-SG just has "boxes to check" to be in compliance with their contracts. Wouldn't spend to much time on getting third party quotes-they don't care about the "price" all they need is all the "boxes checked"-you could put $1 or $100,000 in the box and it wouldn't make ANY difference to them.

What we do is email our VPA and ask her to call us when she has time. It does no good to call her. We always get some lackey who knows absolutely nothing.

You just throw a large # in to cover your azz and you get a return to property to justify your bid............

Problem is, my VPA has quit answering my emails too. SG has given him like 6 states. The last time I did talk to him, he sounded wore out. He and I have always had a good relationship. But, lately, he doesn't have time to negotiate cut bids, talk about problem orders, or anything. We're supposed to talk to the VCC, and like you say, we get idiots that don't have any authority and lack common sense.

Might be for compliance, might not make any difference to them.

As a business owner, under this scenario, I have no gain for putting my name to fictitious bids;
I do however inherit their risk and liability.
