d+jhomeservices said:60-90 days is bull,noone should work for these companies taking this long to pay.
Working locally means you have a better chance of getting word of mouth referrals. We receive unsolicited work from realtors we have never met based on a good word from an existing customer in their office. Doing preservation work for out of state companies is a finite thing; running your operation as a standard general contractor with customers you see see and shake hands with is long term and less risky.i gave my business card to most banks in my area and never heard back but from 1
I'm not negative. :whistling2: I just posted an extremely help way to perform a trash out on another thread.why does everyone so negative? i get it takes awhile to get paid. i currently have a bank im working for. and also i have a full time job so its not going to kill me like it would some of you
You are a newbie with a toe in the water. You don't understand the vibe out there. Get back to us after 18 months in the business and a few chargebacks, no pays, rule changes, clients going out of business, and we will see where your attitude is.why does everyone so negative? i get it takes awhile to get paid. i currently have a bank im working for. and also i have a full time job so its not going to kill me like it would some of you
It takes 60-90 days just to be eligible for pay, not to get it. Once that time comes, they take whatever amount of $$ they got from their client and divide it up between all their contractors. Its really something else....60-90 days is pretty standard. If you aren't solvent this may not be the right industry for you.
We just completed a roof, siding, and drywall job. Sold it 45 days ago and got half down. That half covered Materials and labor. We had to wait 45 days for our profit.
We did a trash out and massive yard clean up direct for a bank out of Cincinnati total was around 11k. We had dump fees, labor, rental equipment, all that to pay up front that was in may. I'm still waiting on payment. It will come but just because it's a direct client doesn't necessarily mean quick pay.
In many businesses net 60-90 is common. I know Walmart, GE, General Motors, and several other companies stretch their contractor out to 120 days all the time.

In a nut shell, No. No one knows a sure fire way to get more local work. Beat the pavement, realtors, Investors, private money guys. You gotta bring something to the table that they are not currently getting, or you have to make their life easier. That's a hard thing to do when your new and unknown.Does anyone with experience have any advice on how to gain more local business?
