I am assuming that is a property preservation company.

I work for 5-6 now I cant remember. Some are reasonable on time frames to complete work, some email me work at 3 P.M. and expect it done that day. Some pay well some pay next to nothing.

I do it to fill in the gaps between my customers and I get quite a bit of work from them. I started out just doing lawn but I have got into securing properties (changing locks), boarding windows, initial inspections, and I have a few bids for trash- outs pending.

If you want to make money doing it you need to be fast. And example last week.

$50 for gas because the property was out of my area.
$25 Door knob
$25 Dead bolt
$25 Lock box
$10 pad lock
$150 initial lawn cut (it was overgrown)

So $285 for 2.5 hours of work. Supplies and fuel were about $40 I was home by lunch. If I had more work that day it would have been an even better day.

One negative is all the work comes at once. The banks will send out their lists and its BUSY for a week then off and on for 10 days.

Tomorrow I fully expect 30-50 properties to show up in my inbox and I will work for the next 6 days straight.

How do you make contact with them? Do you deal with a company or directly with the banks? I might be interested in doing some of this in my area.
Thanks

Thanks for the replies .Yes is is a property preservation company but withsome of them i have heard nightmare stories of getting paid .

I Google them and could find very little information so i guess that is good they are not ripping off people on payments and such or it would be all over internet like some of the other less then honorable companies.

I will give them a shot i guess to use as fill in between lawn care jobs and will see what happens

Thanks again

Do they have a website?

Also do they have a few lawn care contractors they work with that you could get a hold of to find out how they are to deal with?

I was looking to make contact with one last night. I return a call from yest for someone looking to get a lawn cut locally and turned out to be a preservation company. She said they pay $20 for up to 15,000 sq ft including the structure on the property. I said how often she said every other week they all get cut. I don't know plus they want before during and after photos about 40 in total front and back. So on top of only getting 20 a lawn now I have to take extra time to take photos. Does anyone work for them now to see if it is even worth it? She said if it is tall or bigger to take photos and they contact the bank to try and get more for the job. $20 to cut a lawn and take photos doesn't seem like a lot but she said they have a lot of volume. Any comments????

I have yet to have any issues getting paid, but I am sure it happens.

The pictures are a pain but you get used to it.

Like I said the pay varies but I would rather mow 7 lawns for $20 each than sit at home. BUT it also depends on your location. 95% of the lawns around here can be done in less than 45 minutes. In some states the average lawn is huge.

If the lawn was not overgrown I think for that company it would have been $80 for the initial cut and $20 for each re-cut.

Are you able to do any marketing to get neighbors to sign up?

Would lawn signs work? Or maybe dropping off some postcards to the immediate neighbors?
