Safeguard

Had a regional tell me they wanted me to rake leaves when I cut the grass. They said they could only pay me a $1 a bag. Are you kidding me. Thinks that's last time I will be doing work for them

REO pricing for leaves is $2 a bag or $12 a CYD for Safeguard. Not sure why you're getting hosed.

That's still ridiculously low. I don't see how guys make money doing REO work for those prices.

12 $ a bag

lol.. sorry jenkins... not sure how you got your discount to 8%... i wouldn't rake leaves for nothing.. im not a lawn care.. Jason i would just blow them under a deck lol.. don't listen to sum of the people on here.. no one should get paid 1-2-3-4$ a bag i would bring my 2nd dump with a vacumme attached to it and just suck up the leafs.. a 18cub trailer and safe guard would say they only see 3 yards... 2-3 hrs of work for an extra 60$ lol...

regionals are idiots they like to bully you and do the... we dont need to send you work..they want a 300$ job done for 62$ -% the time you spend doing this you can have went to a local gas station etc and got them to sign up on a weekly mow and charged them the 300- spring clean up and 45$ weekly mows.. whats worst is the no brain Field qc person will come out and find a branch or some leafs blew in the yard and flag it and make u go out on your dime and pick up for free..
photo is the only way i would do leafs.. and safeguard burnt me every time saying leafs are not in bags or looks to be 2-yrds of leafs etc..i dont know how many times they wouldnt pay cause the leafs were not in bags and i had to fight fight fight to get that 30$ by then the amount of emails, phone calls, and sending in more photos i was in the hole by 4 times that amount..
