    I am on the way to getting in to p&p as a sub contractor for another company. I know what they are doing and it is not hard but as me being a sub contractor they are marketing money off me as I do all the work not happy about that. Know on to my questions has anyone done p&p and if so how do you get lined up with the finance company and what kind of software do you need to import all the pics and other stuff that goes along with it. We went though a flood and there are a lot of foreclosures in my town and I know p&p would pay good for a long while. Thanks in advance for any help.

    doug,I did this for a little while for a company & just wasnt for me because they were few & far between...there are a lot of discusions on here about this...I allways went through e-mail with company I worked for with pic's & stuf like that but its been a while now so I'm sure things have changed as far as software...go to your local banks & credit unions in your area first & have several copies of your insurance's: liability/comp/ etc; & they might want you to have more..but sit & talk to them & explain what you do & what area's you can cover..& that you would like to do this service for them & leave your contact info etc, with them...also check with the realators in your area as well & do the same...then you have cut out the middle man...the real money is in the repairs & it sounds like in your area there is a need for that..the banks get fined for not being up to code so thats another service you can provide for them if you do that sort of stuf..or you can possibly sub it out too...go here: www.PropertyPreservationAcademy.com & take your time with it cuz it has a lot of info on this type of work...& has a thing about software on there too...

    http://www.nvms.com/ I worked for these guys a few years ago. They were a pain because I had to first accept a job, then I had to do this than that through their website then do the work then take 6 pictures then type a brief description of the work then wait about 3 weeks for payment which came like clockwork. After I did a few jobs for them they set me up with ACH payments and it came on time.

    Once they had me secret shop at eh local mall to check for credit card discouragement. Was given $75 to spend in a pretty cool store and the job payed pretty good on top of that. Mall security saw me taking a picture of the storefront and almost blew my cover lol. It was an experience. I'm not doing it anymore thank the sodgods for that. It helped get me here tho

    NVMS NEVER checked my insurances. Checked nothing about me that I knew of. Good luck, and they pay was fair. $80/residential acre, 40 for half etc.
