You can get quite a bit of information from old threads here, just use the search engine or you can google the terms in your free time. Safeguard will be glad to teach you winterizations for about $100 per job.

We terminated our status with them as a regular approved vendor sometime ago. We still do work for them on a case by case basis. I have no problems sharing our experiences with them on this forum, however, if you like you can pm me anytime.

thank u GTX63

Thank u again for responding back.
all the comments that I have read on this forum and other ones regarding sq has been bad, with respect to paying on time, not paying and arguing the bid submission, and going back to the property for missed stuff. all this are expenses, for example the initial grass cut is $52 and recur is $28, there is hardly profit margin, and if I have to go again for whatever(???) then I am loosing $. How can a vendor become a profitable with sq? This is just one example. I guest other vendors found a way to make it with small margin.
And I started this business early 2012, it is only me, and part-timers as I need it. I don't know how vendors are having a profit and paying their workers and sustaining positive profit. I don't know what I'm missing???
Thank u
and
looking forward to your response

There is a reason you were contacted. I personally know of NO PROFITABLE Companies that work with Safeguard. If the previous contractor found Safeguard a profitable venture you wouldn't have gotten a call. Enough Said?

You are not missing anything, it would not be profitable to work with them at those rates.

If you fancy being exploited and running a business that loses money, yes, by all means sign up with these pukes.
