I'm trying to be more profitable obviously as everyone is.. Now my debate is wether to shop around for more / different companies or actually cut back and take more work from 1 or 2

If you were a plumber, would you rather work solely for an old man and his son in law, or would you rather advertise and take one job from many?

Sorry. The moral of the tale is don't leave your financial well being up to a select few. The more customers you have, the more freedom, opportunity, and control you have.

In general, I never put all eggs in one basket. The one company could stop paying you, or go bankrupt, then you are screwed. If you have several companies the chances are they will not all screw you at once, or all go bankrupt at once.....

Unfortunatly it's a doggy dog world out there and you have to be prepared to get screwed, because it will happen eventually. Even if its a back charge, you loose!

I've had a few pay issues like " not enough pics " or I get a work order that says a job pay 300 I get paid 100 office says " I didn't justify getting paid 300 " idk it's a pain finding decent companies to receive work from .. What else do you guys do besides working on foreclosures?

I do very little foreclosure work anylonger so besides working on what little amount I do....HMMM. I got Pis**ed at Service Companies and caused a lot of pain to them so now I do some private work, camp, post on this forum sometimes and fly down to the Florida beaches. Anyone by St Petes next week? :)

First, you have to understand the insanity of the above statement. If I told a roofer ahead of time I'll pay him 10k to roof my house and then, after the fact, said that his work only justified 6k, he'd break my neck.
You either accept the fact that part of the P&P biz is a shakedown and take it, or, as a solo contractor, you look at them as a wednesday night date and nothing more.

My point exactly! With 5 clients you can tell the 1 that screwed you to kiss your A**, lien the property and continue with the others.

As far as other work, we have residental customers for lawn cuts, snow removal, fall clean ups, own a few rentals which produce income, and work for surrounding cities on code violations.:thumbsup:

If your doing the work, an you provide photo's before an after of the work, their clear and depict the work done. Don't let some sleaze-ball out fit short-change you. Dispute it, and don't work for them again. Simple.
