Received a email from these guys to see if we were still interested in becoming a vendor for them. Wondering if you all know anything about these guys.

The Good, Bad, and Ugly..................?????

Thanks in advance for you all's help.......:thumbup:

From there wed site.Ive never worked for them.


We pay our vendors as we get paid. Most of our clients pay us every 30 days at the first of the month. Therefore, most of our vendors are paid between 30-45 days from submitting a completed work order. Again, this is not a get rich quick industry and we all must wait to be paid. So, make sure you have working capital to support your business before accepting work orders. There are times when we assist our vendors in “good standing” with large bid approvals by advancing them additional funds in order to purchase materials and perform the work.

When you figure it out, let me know because the damn checks don't match the invoices and I'm billing directly off their pricing guide.....WTF:censored:

ditto. .. If I remember correctly my last check had 89 or 83 cents at the end. I know MSI uses Good Choice in my area too. Seems like they send me out to check and/or provide better results.

Haven't seen good choice around here.

According to MSI price sheet, on REO I'm supposed to get 50 for the maid and 45 for the snow. One invoice paid @$70, the next one is paid @$75. Same property, same services. The chit doesn't make sense.....

i did some work for them, my friend did some work for them, one of my employees did some work for them on the side, none lasted longer than 2 months, typical regional and low pay. They just changed their name from "universal property preservation" located in Toledo. BS callbacks often. i think they had mostly cyprexx and safeguard work but that was a bout 2 years ago. i just remember 1 instance on a resecure order, I cut the grass winterized and bid a couple things.

they sent me a call back order "you need to change the lock"
i said "the lock is keyed correctly and works fine"
to which they replied "well we need you to change the lock anyway and take photos of it we reported there was a lockchange"

which is shady and and the property was 45 minutes away.

but mabey they can work out for you??
