There is no formula for why some PP companies are better, at times, then others.
We got a 911 call from them years ago to mow a property in a town about an hour away. Had to get it done in a 24 hour rush. They gave no explanation. Never saw the place before. The next morning we get there, bid the job at $450 for an initial and get approval over the phone with a POC email to follow. Knocked it out that morning and moved on to the next job. Unbeknownst to us, the city had come by before we got there, confirmed that it had not been mowed and put the order in for a crew to come back and knock it down. They must have come by in the afternoon and mowed over our cut. Anyway, 5B tried to no pay us because we didn't completed as scheduled, even after we had submitted time stamped pics confirming when we had been there. Long story short, we sent notices to lien. They emailed us with the offer of live and learn (a common phrase "You have to understand our position") and if we let bygones be bygones, we would continue to get work, or if they had to pay us, we would be off their list for good. We accepted payment without hesitation.
