Property Preservation Servicing

Do any of you guys have any experience dealing with Property Preservaion Services. A rep contacted me today wanting to know if my company would be interested in mowing forclosed properties for them. Any info on this company would be appreciated.

You better check to see if that is before or after the 20% discount they take. that will be also for grass up to 2 ft tall and clipping removed. You will also be required to take pictures of exterior damage to the house including roof. If you miss something they will either back charge you or make you go back and fix it on your dime. picture of street sign, house address, before picture of all 4 sides plus tapes measure picture showing height of grass or weeds.during pictures of all 4 sides while mowing trimming and blowing and after pictures of all 4 sides. Miss any 1 of these pictures and NO PAY for you.

Been in this buisness for a couple of years and they will try to screw you any way they can.
