Are you looking to sub vendors direct or do you just have a possible lead to pass on?

I have work being issued outside my area, there's vendor already in place that is selective about what days he wants to work. I cant do my work and his too, so for now Id have to sub direct until something more permanent can be put in place.

Best way to get the attention of those that have the ability to complete the work is to post some sample pricing.

I am going to guess that you'll not find any professional contractors from this forum that will be willing to be the 4th or 5th place entity in the money chain. Sub of a sub of a sub is a hard sell anymore, even in this racket.

Perhaps you could simply turn someone on the the work if it is in their area. A lot less headache and you will have made an ally that you could work with in the future.
