AFAS cut pricing- any comments?

I hear they are at it again, eliminated the bundle pricing because they realized there was rarely alot of debris, made it sound like a favor to the vendors. Then cut everything else 30%

employees out, that is probably about what their margin is now, if they are lucky. I will be reducing my coverage area, to offset pricing.

Call ten plumbers and tell them you will pay half of what they normally bill. Do you really want the ones that will agree to the job?

There is no mention on how they intend to deal with Wells Fargo snow removals and or landscaping BATF services other than continue with bidding protocol. Do they expect vendors to drive around bidding snow/grass/tree/shrub trimming. Ridiculous!!

It's time to get out of the industry all together. There was a post prior about CA contractors filling law suit against AFAS and few other companies that miss-qualifying vendors as subs. I highly suggest calling the law firm to join the law suit.

AFAS is one of the worst companies in the game. No clue why any one would do their work.

They are not one of the worst. If they were there would still be some hope. I guess I've had about enough too. If I didn't only get the s$&t no one else wanted from them, I might give it a real effort, but it is what it is.

They are definitely one of the worst! If you don't believe that go work for a decent company and get back to me in 6 months.

All nationals suck but There are a few who don't have the ridiculous QC and pic requirements that AFAS has.

who do not pay, do not pay on time, construct arbitrary charge backs, cut bids, atempt to force orders on your company that you reject, those sorts of things. I have not experience any of those things with AFAS. That is why I say they are not in the league with the worst. Admittedly the bar is pretty low.
