Just putting this out there for reference in case anyone else gets the call. Got a call in January from Miken Construction... they are in CA and manage Bank of America repo's. Anyway they find lawn guys in areas and subcontract lawns to them. The Basics: 33 pictures per service!!! No joke... 8 before, 8 during, 8 after, street sign.. etc.. on EVERY SERVICE AT EVERY HOUSE... Make you sign an 8 page contract before starting, including an addendum that you can't take them to court... mediation... hmmmm Lot's of rules that if you don't hit exactly you get dinged... $$$ - Mow, whip, clean-up.. no edging required. The Good: - Lots of lawns.. they gave me 43 to start the first week... not bad, I told them we could handle up to 150 so 43 in week one was a good start. - They pay every two weeks.. I got my check as promised... so they are legit. The Bad: - In CA... getting ahold of someone wasn't always the easiest. - 33 PICS! and the rules are something else. My experience: - I went through the entire application process... prove insurance, prove references, sign a ton of forms, it took about 2 months to get approved as a vendor. I took the first 43 and went to it... it was raining on a lot of them so I got a $15 trip charge to go take pics of puddles... - Every property has pictures uploaded and a property form scanned and sent... this takes awhile per property. - The rate when I went through authorization was $35 for properties under 15,000 sq feet. After I was approved as vendor, one week before mowing started they dropped price to $30 per service... Not cool with me. - So I gave it 2 weeks to see how it went and the work was to much to make $30/lawn worth it. I run my lawn company as fun money... (don't kill me)... I have a full time job that pays all the bills and insurance... If I was full time lawn guy I would have tried to make it work, but I'm not that guy. Overall it is a lot of hassle but they are legit.
