Anyone work for HMBI?

I have been getting swarms of vendor packets by email lately and this is one I haven't heard about yet. They don't have any pricing in the packet but want me to put in my own pricing for:

Initial cleaning- up to 40 cyds- completed within 48 hrs
Initial Lawn Maint- 2 weeks
Periodic inspection- bi weekly
Wint- Dry/Wet
Snow Removal

HMBI Harrington Moran Barksdale INC
2000 E. Lamar Ave
Arlington, TX 76006

Any inside scoops on this one?

Sorry for not searching more thoroughly, as I am sure thats why I did not get any replies... Researched some info up on CT here about them and a little googling came up with some but hopefully somebody might be kind enough to shoot me the skinny in an email about the nitty gritty on them before I jump through the flaming hoops.... We are partially phasing out preservation work, at least as a main focus. But I don't want to tell the good crews I have remaining they are up the creek so I am trying to get something lined up to help them keep some food on the table now that I am getting back into the flooring biz.
Any thoughts would be great!

If I remember correctly they are in the organizational chart with First Preston. Research them. I was with HMBI for abt 1 month back in 2000+/- in Georgia then First Preston took it back. obviously my information is stale but even back in those days it was to low of pay.

I will be in TN for next 8 days if you ever get down to the tourist area of Gatlinburg.... Meal would be on me

We live about 60 miles from Gatlinburgh and go there a ton in the winter cause you can stay for cheap. Heading to the Forge on the 1st of Aug. for a few days with the kids before school starts back. We always stay at the Plaza Inn Best Western Indoor by the pool as this works great if you have younger children. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express In Gatlinburg last month as I have a Cousin that works for the company that owns Holiday Inn plus a few others so we got a suite from $279 to $129 a night with his discount and that was really nice.....Darn now I am ready to go there instead of a nasty house to Trash-Out in the am....

No, But take this advise...

Beware of companies who don't give prices up front. There are several who don't disclose discounts or try to hide them. There is no guarantee that they will even pay. There are a million of these companies popping up trying to sub contract. Also companies that try to bundle services are not trust worthy, people usually get burned sooner or later on bundles. If they are on the up and up, they will show you their pricing, make it simple, they should not charge for a billing software, don't charge joining fees, pay within 30 days, and if it looks fishy, then run.
