Hmbi

So I get a call from these clowns today. Wanted to know if I will do clean outs in Mi for their new client AMS. I said what is your pricing structure. After about a ten min pep talk about how easy it is she finally revealed the price.

$255.00

I said wow what all is needed to be done. Sales clean, initial lawn, debris removal up to 35 CYD. I said that's all I gotta do. Her response was well no if there are any handrails, board ups, or small repairs needed those needed to be done to with photo documentation.

I told her that they are insane for even trying to pull that crap. I advised her to troll on CL and she might find someone to work at those rates. Just when I think things have bottomed out some new hack undercuts the already low rate.

Hope you all get a good laugh, I sure did.

I posted last week about another company that contacted me wanting basically the same thing for $250 up to 40 cyds and then $20 per cyd after that. I think several posters doubted the pricing could be real.

It was folks.

I got a call today from a family member saying that they heard on the radio that someone here in Des Moines did a foreclosure cleanout on the wrong home, and I believe is being charged with burglary. I can't find an article yet, I think it all went down today. My guess is that it's a "company"(if I could even call it that) that was hired for pricing like that. There's a guy from out of town that gets Cyprexx jobs, and subs them out to people here. I have went to several with lots of junk left behind, they couldn't change locks so Cyprexx had to call a locksmith, a mess.

Edit: He said they didn't specifically say a foreclosure cleanout. Just that a company hired to clean out a house, cleaned out the wrong one. Assumingly a foreclosure, but we'll find out when the news article appears.

It's unbelievable but true. What's worst part is I know there are "contractors" who troll around on here who are going to google HMBI and call them first thing tomorrow morning.

LOL, a NG should be on here soon to accuse Holland of being too good to work for those wages. Must not have a family to support.

I want that woman's name. I am calling her in the morning. I'm going to ask her how many contractors she has signed on at those prices. If she has more than a half dozen, I'll hire her at twice her pay to work for me! My God, I think I could go back to building 2500 sf tract homes for 40K.
