I have 4 clients and NO Work. What Gives??!!

Have one that ive been with for 4yrs and they are dwindling. I have signed on with 3 other companies in the past 6 months and I have NO work right now. So not sure what the deal is.

I enjoy the preservation business and know there are a few companies out there that pay well. Its just being there at the right time.

I dont know how anyone can make $$ doing wints for $55. Doing a dry wint thoroughly for me takes just under an hour if theres no issues. So by the time I drive there do the wint and drive back....Im in the hole if I do it for $55.

So what am I missing here? Looks like SG has majority of the work in our area but it would be might difficult for us to cover such a vast area.

Not a rant, just a concern. Seems like others are busy.....?

A dry wint. Is winterizing a house with a force air or "dry" heat. Winterizing is draining the system and pouring antifreeze down traps, and a few other things to prevent damage from freezing. A "wet" wint, is winterizing a house that is heated with a "wet" heat such as radiant or steam heat.

On a positive note, I was just asked to send info to a "known" good busy regional I called after researching. I was surfing CL and found an add for preservation specifically in my area posted earlier in Dec and sure enough....it was the same address I just sent my info to. Crossing my fingers its a good match!

Maybe it was a sign to keep my chin up, keep calling on clients and the work will come our way!

You'll be fine! Just don't put all of your eggs into the Pp basket.

AR,

I talked to a "new company to me" called Renu Renovations? The guys had a new Extended Van with real nice Company Graphics and they said that the company is a national provider of services for P&P and other items (locksmithing, handyman services etc). As I understood this a sometype of franchise that markets nationally and P&P is just one of the fields that they service...Albeit the 2 guys I spoke with at the Health Food Store (McDonalds said that they hate the P&P side of the business since the pay stinks. Might check them out?

Work is very slow for us, too. I've had a total of 1 whole order since the start of the new year and that came in today.

It's this way every year and starts slowing down right after Thanksgiving and drops away to almost nothing by Christmas or the New Year.

My clients have told me it should pick back up again within the next couple of weeks. I sure hope so. My vendors and I need to eat.

Linda
