That noise was reason #11 I stopped working with outfits like Safeguard, etc.
If your photos are top notch you shouldn't have to have a bunch of other hoops to jump thru. I went thru two houses yesterday, photo'd everything, calculated the debris and wrote the bids up in my office. Both approvals just came thru. These are for brokers. My rates per cyd, my dump fees (+ markup), my hazards, etc are all figured in as I need to cover my overhead and profit.
I was at a meeting with a National where they were constructing the 3'x3' pvc tubing so everyone would know what a cyd looks like. I listened as the rep told everyone how much easier it would be to push the debris into the middle of the room, photo, then pick it up again and load it on the trailer. It reminded me of a housing authority I worked at once where the manager would go around and show the tenants how to use a vacuum, load a dishwasher and dust the ceiling fans. Tenants stood around like Patrick Starfish during a food coma.
