A measly $12 for a lock box??????? Thats about cost for the box. Where is the money to install it?
Or do the Harris vendors just boost em from other jobs and then install them for $12?
There is no way to make money at this, why do people work for so cheap?
Do you not realize you are going broke before you even started your day's route?
I can sit at home and go broke slower than what this business model will.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

You said it BP, I think I would sit home and go broke before I would work for them. A few prices are about the same as all of the new regional but a little lower .....I bet he sleeps good at night with a full belly

This industry is where it is today because regional companies have cut deals with national companies to snatch up all the decent paying work in your coverage area.

It's time to tell these out of state regional companies to go home and force the national companies to deal directly with the contractors that have been completing their work all along!

The old "you have to cover a whole state or more before we will entertain working directly with you" no longer works either. With all the new requirements being forced on all of us, it is all but impossible to rely on subcontractors to cover a region. NATIONAL COMPANIES WILL DEAL WITH YOU DIRECTLY TO COVER YOUR HOME AREA.

Stop ennabling the out of state regional companies to provide the nationals with coverage in your area by either saying NO, or better yet:

Here is what I propose as a fix: Advise ALL regional companies that if they want to provide coverage in your coverage area, it will cost 100% of HUD rates with no discounts applied, plus travel charges for WO's outside of city limits. Remember, THEY are the ones who have promised to cover your area, not you. And, they NEED you to do it. Force them to pay for it!

If you and your contemporaries do this it will take no more than a month and you will have national companies looking for direct coverage in your area, enough work and decent enough pay for you and the competition combined!
I know this for a fact, we are doing this right now in Montana, and it is working.

Iíve already told you more than I know.

Best words of advice I have ever seen on here this is the key to changing what we as contractors get compensated for.
