Anybody have any experience with this company? We received an email saying we have 9 orders in their system. Login and complete them.

The thing is we have never heard of these guys? I have no login and no price sheet etc.

We had a girl filling out packets back in December when things were slow and she may have signed up with these guys.

If they are legit we welcome the business. If they are subbing safegaurd work we won't return their calls.:thumbsup:

Thanks man I have already done that, and rip off reports and BBB. I am looking for someone with real life experience. Pay sheets, client info, procedural nightmares, that sort of thing. Our local business is going great right now and we are honestly too busy to take on a new client. If they are a good client I could maybe put an existing client on hold or hire more crews. We never want to turn down good work when we may need this company come December.

They are out of texas. I've done 20 -30 jobs for them. Pay is decent. $35 CYD. Grass minimum $40 up to $120 for standard lots up to 45000sf. Pay great on hazards. $5 per gallon of paint. $10 for propane or gas can. Knoblocks/padlocks $40. Lockbox $20. They pay monthly. In by the 17th pay mailed on the following 15th. If you filled out their online info you picked a password at the time. Then when a job comes up in your area its yours.
The 9 orders are just 1 initial secure with lots of preappproved jtems like pool covering and roof tarping.
Hope this helps.

I don't think its VA. There aren't any requirements about medals and military uniforms like most VA. They are pretty secretive. They don't reveal the bank or where the property is in the cycle. And they never approve a bid for trashout until well after 6 months after initial. Except for aforementioned hazards. I don't think they are subs because some stuff pays too well. I just bid $750 to tarp a 19 x 35 roof and got it. It was at the top of their allowable but then, that's where I like to be.

Sounds decent. I may give them a call tomorrow just to touch base.

Thanks for info. Greatly appreciated.

Run forrest run

they used to have the wells fargo contract and it was sad. I had a initial secure and it went south really faast. The door had 6" off set door knob (standard is 2 3/8) so I drilled a new hole innthje door and installed a new lock and put a cover plate on. They called and said they wanted the plug reinstalled and to make the door look like new and that cover plates were not allowed. Needless to say I said PIZZOff and t hey had to come up with a better fix. They also kept calling with you did nt pad lock X and Y . The property was secure with existing hardware ???? and all the time tehy wanted it done same day that they were calling. non payment on the initial secure and just the wint which was a lowball price. I went to t he property for a realtor and their fix on the door was a brass plate that covered the inside and outside of the door !! Isnt that a cover plate ??

Have done stuff for them in the past. Pay was fair in NE and abnormally quicker than most nationals. Only problem with them is they dropped their routine work when they wanted, so if you only have 30 or less (tuff to get decent pay for lawns in NE) it never coincides with your run so it would require separate trips which im sorry thats uncalled for. We did beat them back to our run, but same time they incorporated PCR photos and upclose of keys in locks etc. They were the first we ran into-anyway we shuffled them to the , well for lack of better terms ____________

This is the only company I have worked for that has actually dropped requirements. Last month their grass cuts dropped the PCR and interior photo requirements. Now you don't have to enter the buildings for grass cuts. And they still start at $50. Other companies do it this way as well, but to actually reduce the amount of work, well, that's different. Not that I'm a MFS CO cheerleader or anything...

Here they have Wells Fargo Pre Forclosure stuff....
Do mostly initial secures..remove hazards...maintenance...
For a bit they had the PCR **** but now they just do a lawn cut with a buttload of photos...exterior only nothing on the interior, except for the initial secure.
they take 20%....never heard of payment issues...runs about 45 days...if you can make the numbers work....
Not sure if it will remain but they do want all to take and pass NAMFS education program.....at your expense....
Their volume definitely does not come anywhere close to be able to justify that demand....IHHO

When I was with them they had some payment issues.

My last check was some thing like 3 months.


I dumped them when they dropped my state's payouts by 40% or 50% with no warning.
Didn't even have the common courtesy to respond to my concerns via email.
The only way I knew they had gotten my final communication on going inactive was they pulled my recurring W/Os.


And you are correct, their volume does not justify any additional expenses for training or certifications.

In my opinion they WERE a good company, with low volume, up until spring of '11.

They owe me 4k for jobs completed. They delayed and delayed until the properties were turned over. I didn't want to lien new homeowners for my work.

I think they are a POS company and would advise against them.

Sorry but I think the quality of a complaint site is as good as the complainers. And if you judge from this site, the quality is piss poor. There are some legit people here who know what they are doing. You also have some ignorant jackasses who complain about any and everything.

Ever see the HBO show Deadwood? Remember Steve the Drunk? I imagine there are a couple Steve the Drunk's here.

Spot on! I have this thought everytime someone complains about Safegaurd, or some regional. In those situations it's not a question of IF its a question of WHEN.

We just got MAJOELY hosed by AMS on pay. They suddenly require some pics they never required for the last 3 years. They are also unable to pay without these pics they never required before.

The moral here is if you lay down with dogs you wake up with flees.

Let me guess, this requirement was buried on some sheet somewhere in some memo two years ago and they just decided to start enforcing
