I have two full time employees in the office. One has been with me for almost two years and I still get about 5-10 calls from her daily. And it never fails, I get back to the office in the evening and there are several work orders on my desk with sticky notes saying - "I didn't know what you wanted to do about ______" (fill in the blank with roof damage, mold, ect)
Between the two of them they process about 10-20 work orders a day through SG's online system. Which, when it is running well, is not too bad, but we complete 20 grass cuts a day, plus a dozen P&P orders. So, I still have to work most nights until I feel sleepy just to stay caught up.
Be glad when GC season ends next week. I might get some sleep.
I've contemplated off site order processing services, but I guess I'm too much of a control freak. I have too much at stake to let someone I don't know and can't oversee process my orders.
But, good news is - I just purchased a building. (been working out of my old woodworking shop at home). Hopefully we'll be moving in this weekend.
almost 8000 sqft. room to put my trucks and lawn care equipment inside as well as enough warehouse space (about 3400 sqft) I won't be renting any more storage units for personals removed from properties. Just got to build the shelves.
Building used to a automotive repair shop. My office - the old paint booth.
Took quite a bit of remodel. But I left the fluorescent lighting in the walls. looks cool with the new paint and carpet. I'll post some pictures once we get it all set up.
