Why...

Cause its idiots like this that ruin it.. most people are cheap, they want the cheaper **** thus why walmart is so large!!! someone says oh i can save 10$ but its the "same" work why not..
I care cause these idiots dont have DOT #'s you damn sure they are not bonded, then cause they are a "fly by night" company and they steal or do other stuff we the good guys take the brunt of the bad feed back.

You know how many jobs i have lost cause people want cheap. Or how many calls i get saying can you come back and finish, I paid the guys and they never came back..

Im not complaining i find it rude that people that use a old boat trailer and slap a sign on the side and say he we do junk removal..
Not sure if you are being an a$$ about my post or not? its kinda like Facebook you don't like my post you can ignore it?

I post stuff to keep this site going since it seems so many people are on here just for the free info and not giving any feed back. I really dont have no reason to come here no more but i enjoy reading the good info and its helped me in some areas.

So yes.. that is my reason.. just plan ole boredom and crabbiness from reading bad websites and reading horrrible reviews.

how can anyone make any money at those rates? Illegals at $8/hr cash??? I don't see how filling a 15cy truck or trailer that takes the better part of a day with a crew of 3 is making anything let alone breaking even.

IMHO, anyone has the right to advertise whatever they want. That being said, if they do not dispose of the trash according to law, etc., and can cover their costs without screwing their employees- go for it. That is what makes 'merica great. I'll focus more on overdelivering to their potential customers so when they drop the ball, I am able to justify my rates. It has worked fine for me so far.

As in every business you must compare Apples to Apples. Ex: today I did an insurance inspection with an adjuster, insurance companies preffered vendor who was $88/sq cheaper than the homeowners contractor and the homeowner present. The adjuster sat there and said "we will NOT pay more than what "our" contractor would charge to do the job---a square of shingle costs the same to install no matter who does the work"

At that point I asked this Preffered Vendor to get me his Cert of Ins which he promptly and proudly handed to me. I turned to the homeowner and pointed out his Ins Policy pays on a Claims Made basis and when or if he closes his doors you will need to personally sue the adjuster for not vetting his Preferred Vendor properly.

Homeowner is having his contractor do the work and Ins is paying for all the invoice.

The moral is: pricing and quality of service doesnt mean a dang thing if you can't compare exact business models.

Exactly. Well said- this is the education of a contractor that is so important, so you're not bringing a knife to a gunfight, per se. Knowing things like this, is HOW you demand- and GET higher prices.

I can't say that is a make or break deal. The difference of insurance is less than 2k a year. If I was this contractor and that much cheaper than everyone else for whatever stupid reason that I am that cheap in the first place, I would just change the policy, pay the difference, get the job. The difference between contractor a, b, and c may be very minimal. As far as roofing is considered, if you know how to do a roof, you know how to do a roof. I don't think there is any 1 company that can do it better than another. Just 1 might do it incorrectly and another might do it correctly. I know a roofer that charges contractors $100-130sq to rip and lay a new roof + material. He has an average roof done in 4 hours with 5 guys and onto the next. He is licensed and insured properly. Difference is, he won't work with the pia homeowner, only does sub work, and demands payment upon completion same day.

true

anyone is allowed to advertise.. doesn't mean they should lol.. I don't care what people charge, but where i live there is cheap and then people that like cheap.
Hell even the bid i did for kirklands to demo for there new store i had everything down and just to stay busy i was going cheap and the lady said i was the 2nd highest. she said the 1st bid was about 3k less. So you are going to demo a 5000sq ft retail shop for ruffly 4200$? lease my bid i had plumbers coming in to cap the main lines, and to make sure boiler was left in tack. I don't get these people. after cost, rental, dumpster fees he had to walk away with IDK 500-800 for a 9 day job. I had it down as a 4 day job since it was time crunched.
