I have plenty of work for an ambitious employee or a preservation contractor who services the Boise, Nampa, Meridian, Mountain Home and surrounding areas.

Willing to train the right person but it's an intense process and you need to be able to learn and understand HUD and FHA guidelines. The work is fairly easy but you'll need basic equipment for yard maintenance, a good cordless drill, and digital camera to start with.

I'm willing to consider a fair salary in lieu of piecework so you know what to expect every week, even if there's no work. Right now there's plenty and it doesn't look like it's going to stop anytime soon. Please don't contact me if you can't commit yourself to working long hours and doing a good job, on time.

Also, this industry is not for the faint of heart so if you're only mildly interested, please don't contact me. My inbox is swamped already.

BTW ~ I'm pretty easy to work for unless you're not doing your job and can't be depended on to work a minimum of 5 days per week. Bonuses and annual increases are part of the plan but the additional compensation will be directly related to performance and timeliness of work completed.

Your Post dates 2008 but I thoughti'd write anyway.

My Name is MIKE Beames, I used to do clean outs and presevation for a company out of florida while I resided in Oklahoma many years ago. Back then it seemed much easier to be in this field.

Presently I find myself in a predicament for employment and also in a much better place to do this same job, Material wise and location wise. As I have been seaching however I find that things have changed aparently, I have been out of the loop for long enough OR the requirements are different enough up here in the NW that I just don't get it anymore.

What I would like to do is go to work for someone who has an established buisness rather than go to all the trouble of trying to figure it all out for myself. When I did this same job before I did not have to have a seperate insurance policy, Tax ID numbers or anything like that. I just went to work for the company after showing them I had all my gear and was ready to do everything they asked in a timely manner.

I was wondering if you might be able to point me in the correct direction to accomplish this. Or If your offer was open still.

I have been researching many company names and checking for complaints and reports from customers and employees and I have found so many Nightmare stories, it's a little disheartening really.

I have the gear and I am skilled in all the right ways, I have a 16foot long Nice trailer with a large split ramp and steel enclosed sides and dual axles, 76" wide and interstate Hiway worthy and nice white yukon to pull it with, My rigs respectable. lawn equiptment, air compressor, generators, hand and electric hand tools, Lock repinning set ( Quickset is generally the locks I changed But I have worked with others ) My old area was NW Oklahoma, southern most part of Kasas and sometimes down as far as Duncan Oklahoma. all documantation was done online as were the picture uploads and all that. I know this is the right buisness for me to be in, I just do not iknow how to get back in is all.

Please let me know if you have any pointers that could help. If There really is No other way to do it than to make my own buisness and then hook up with a company then that would be nice to know as well. If there is a an approx cost for all that you know of for that process It would be handy to know that information as well.

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to CT, Mike.

It's very difficult, with the industry being the way it is now, to give you advice.

It would almost make more sense to be an employee. The only thing is, though, the company you work for needs to have enough clients to keep you busy............... and keep you paid.

If you go out on your own, starting up can be rough. But, if you make it, it can be very rewarding as well. And not always in terms of money, although everyone here will tell you it's ALL about the money.

Sounds like you're doing your research and that's a good thing. Really think hard about what you really want to do, given the information you've got.
