First of all I'm not going to sit here and badmouth and company, if thats how they want to do business... good for them. All i will say is
HPIR and HUD Initial service- including up to 40 CYD debris, initial janitorial, initial landscape which include trimming palms and any over grown trees or shrubs, capping all safety hazards, backpowering the home with the generator ( Illegal ) all for 400.00- IF YOU GET PAID ON TIME...
Oh and I forgot to mention they require you to upload your photos to them, as well as to HUD's portal so they dont have to do any uploading....!
That would irritate me but what I am wondering is a few things
first did you have to do all that work was there forty cubic yards and did you trim the bushes and stuff
second why didn't you bid the bushes on the HPIR if they were bad or bid the debris I am sure you can on the HPIR
third how long did it take you to do the job
Four hundred dollars is not much pay if you are there all day that is for sure but if you were only there say four hours that is a hundred dollars an hour compared to minimum wage which can be about eight dollars an hour it all depends on what you had to do if you were there ten hours then that is forty dollars an hour and I know expenses can be rough but how much gas did you spend what were your dump fees and how long to do the picture uploading if you still made say twenty dollars an hour after all that then you did better than a lot of people out there
I recently got a real job and was sick when I realized the kind of money I had been making compared to what I was making now working a month to make what I could make on one good trash out and I had been complaining about how little money I had been making on the trashout I don't complain anymore
But if you are really down to making less than even minimum wage after expenses then you do need to do something about that
As far as backfeeding the house doesn't HUD ask you to do that and if they ask you to do that on their property that they own then I would think the liability is off of you and back on to them
