    I have done some of this in the past. If you great help it will work. I would'nt look for established companies because that confusses the customer when the truck pulls up with another name(trust me). I know it's no different than a house builder but they expect that from them. Make sure they have Insurance forms and you have a copy first. The ideal subs are good part timers because they can work into a time frame. I even have them run my signs. Once again if you find a established company make sure they have no signs of their own. Try to find guys who are breaking away from a company on their own.

    Are you wanting to sub your services? Either way, you might try the networking forum.
