advice needed from the pros in p&p
I started property presavation work in feb, I was mis-led by a contractor about the work i was to preform and had no idea what i was getting into, finding work in construction was very slow and hard to find, so i agreed to sub contract as a preservation specialist, worker's com, business license and liability insurance plus finance 10,000 in equipment a lap-top computer cel phone ect.ect. I'm in waist deep in papper work biding jobs and damages traveling all over the country side. very little preform for bid (paying work) all bids 45 to 50 houses in 5 days 1,000 miles on my truck in one week at 4$ a gallon.The overhead $$$ is killing me.# 45 initial yard maintenance in one week and only mowed #4 yards at $40 a yard.
the other#36 are all over the allowable and have to bid them.I will bid 1,000 for a job the recovery service emails me back and its over the allowable and they only have $250 to complete the work, will i agree ? they also get 58% of the $250.
Will this work improve or is it down hill from now.??? ( will your bids be accepted or is this the only way for them to get conditions reports by hanging a carrot over your head and giving you a little bite every now and then.
