    There are many horror stories concerning National Service Providers. Does anyone know of any "good" NSPs?

    Lipinski land and cherry logistics are awesome to work for. Just takes 60-90 days to get paid

    Is it 60-90 each time you submit an invoice or is that at the start of the season?

    Waiting 90 days to get paid is not an awesome company to work for.

    60-90 for each invoice. After the first round you get paid every few days. They pay extremely good though. I do snow removal at a small bank and 1 inch snow pays almost $400 and goes up from there. A 10 inch snow pays almost 1k. So if you have the capital to work the first 90 days it's well worth it

    Agree, they are excellent to work with.

    We do work for BFS and have had a good experience with them.

    Prices are a bit towards the cheap on the maintenance contracts, but where we make it up is with the add-on services that comes with these accounts. Pricing is good to great on those services.

    They pay on schedule every thirty days, so it's never an issue. The office reps are easy to communicate with and negotiate with.

    They also have a traveling market manager that looks at the sites every month or less to make sure they are being maintained to their standards. We are able to talk with this rep and figure out the best solutions to problems.

    So over all I give it a B to B+.
