I have been doing inspections for them thru a Sub until I can get my stuff rocking and rolling. They are a complete joke and pain in the arse. They pay crap money for the inspections "my cut 3 for drive by and 5 for int.. the sub gets 6.50 for drive by and 7.50 for int" but expect 1,000% perfect work. I will be so happy to tell them to go pound sand when my stuff is rolling.

Yes it is. Slaveguard was TERRIBLE 14 years ago when I told them to hit the road. I lasted 16 years with AFAS ( or whatever t hey call themselves now... they seem to get sold more than a revolving door turns) and 2 months with SG. my limit with AFAS was when hey got as bad as Sg I was out and that was a year ago. Weight of the world was lifted off my shoulders when the LASt property I was servicing for them got sold. NO charge backs or rheterick.

I am amazed on how these company's work and continue to operate!I wish everyone would have heard my conversation.They break the law on a daily basis!She said to me that we never had a contractor in your area with a license and you don't need one.Saying i call it home improvement license and she said its maintenance when the law states anything whether it be an improvement,Alterations or Maintenance under (6) Units needs a license.How is some women in a cubical in ohio going to tell me the laws in my town.I should start turning everyone in to the county who does preservation illegal.One guy i see every 2 weeks 4 houses away from mine with a push mower and a 1996 dodge caravan.Only one guy in the county who does preservation besides me has a license and hes only licensed for lawn care nothing else.It cost me Thousands to get licensed in My county in NY & State of NJ!

Email her a copy of the local laws, and then email a photo or two of the sub doing the work and his van to the county.

I tried to get the national issuing the PPR work orders in my state investigated by the atty general because of the breaking and entering issue. "we don't have time or resources for that" Was her response. After the paramedics revived me I had to just sit there and take a deep breath and go WOW this is a travesty.

The nationals
1) don't care
2) will throw it back on us " INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS" to insure we have appropriate insurance and licenses as spelled out in the contracts.
3) don't allow us to get paid sales tax or issue us a resale certificate because that would drop their profit by 10 % here

There are many MANY issues that they have weaseled their way around and until we as a collective group WALK OUT for a WEEEK OR A LONGER they wont take us seriously. There is always someone willing to do 5$ acre yard cuts with the carrot dangling in front of them of " we will make you the primary vendor for your area if you help us out this once"

Cynical YES Herd it all before YES This is why I have told all my nationals except for one to go pack sand! I love my realtors and they pay within a week and no pictures need be taken, I have gone to work for the state and do the repo on the side which is JUST FINE. in 3 months its to MExico I go ! for a week.

All inclusive ( air fare from PAcific northwest , transfer to resort and ALL MEALS and DOMESTIC drinks included, non motorized water sports, hobie cat , snorkel ETC 8 days 7 nights with room upgrade hour massage up grade for one smoking dinner & breakfast in bed first morning and champagne through Costco travel $2400 for 2 ppl ) OCtober is their off season in Cozamel. Water was smashing warm and avg temp 75 Will I see you there ?? This time though it may be permanent !

I have very little issues with the nats. Some slow pay here and there. But I also don't have the volume of work here that I use to have stateside. But that's ok. Broke into other business. Then got some nice inspection work going.

Working on insurance claim work. Thanks to help and advice from a few on this board. Mahalo!!

Safeguard wants us to apply "RD-UP" to the cracks and what not to the driveway, walkways..That is highly illegal in this sate unless you are a licensed, commercial applicator. Pesticide applications are regulated by the dept. of agriculture here and you must be licensed to do that work and/or you can be fined hefty. I know because I worked performing pest applications in Wa. state for years.
