Taking work from us lawns ?

I got involved with us lawns last march before the season had started everything sounded great. Until i found out that they where located in florida and paid me out of state.i didnt like the smell of that at all.

Just wondering if anyone can tell me if they work or have worked with this company and do they pay ? Are they easy to work for ? Or is it just not worth the trouble.

Imput needed

Half my invoices go out of state. Do you have a web-based page to track your work orders and such? Makes it really easy and in my experience with NVMS the payment was very fast and the work paid pretty good. Once you get a rep to send you work it's all gravy. Badger the reps until you get jobs. They got the work, but getting them to fork over the gravy takes you showing them you can handle it. I'd do it again if I still did residentials.

NVMS had commercial and res work orders. Also had lots of "goto this store and take pictures of XXXXwhateverwasinquestionXXXX orders" I skipped that type of nonsense work because it wouldn't barely pay for the gas. But the lawn jobs were cake and the work orders were very clear and pay was fast.

No US lawns experience here. But working for vendor management co. is not a bad gig, just not very consistent money coming from it. Don't make plans for the future from it.

We work for US lawns. Sure you have to meet their insurance requirements. Jump through a few hoops. Once you are in its a pretty good relationship. They pay monthly. We send the invoice and emails to Florida and the pay out of California. They pay like clockwork. One of the better national companies out there.
