Newbie Questions

Hey folks! I am new to this forum. I am also just getting into Property Preservation. I have equipment and a crew and all the knowledge of how to effectively complete the tasks of Property Preservation.

My question is, would anyone be willing to help me out on what I need to do and how to start getting work orders and what companies are most trustworthy?

Email and text friendly as well.

Yes I have done the work as a laborer. I am interested in learning how to actually get the work to start and run my own business instead of being just the laborer. Does that make sense?

It does. However there is no easy answer to your question. There is far more to this business than labor. Labor is the easy part in fact. The tough part is all the phone calls and questions, uploading orders and writing a minis series for every single photo you take, fielding emails looking for a pic you already submitted and wrote a mini series about, that phone call about the fly on the wall in pic DSC109 "we need a bid to eradicate flies", the contractor who wants to complain about driving 30 mins to a property for a PCR, the chargebacks, chasing money.

In other words if you have the equipment and knowledge WHY would you choose to do this? My plumber is charging me $93.00 an hour, my electrician is getting $75.00, our city is filled with guys driving around in nice trucks with $10,000 mowers. Not one of those guys is taking 250 pics for a work order and most are not waiting 45-60 days to get paid.

Stay a laborer! Your money is guaranteed.. and you don't have to deal with chargebacks.. do you have about 10k sitting in the bank to get started while you're waiting to be paid, proper insurance for your equipment, g&l insurance? And no there are no good companies, they all scam you or try.. a lot more to running a business then just the labor part of it..

As you know there are about 7 strong statewide preservation companies in Indy. Whether we love or hate the regionals they have all the clients even the bad ones.
