What do I need to know about sub contracting out lawn maint, anything will help, thanks.
Um make sure its someone you can trust...
yes just switch hands, hahaha, or look in the mirror while holding in right hand about the football , o wait that wont work
You're subbing the work, and money but not the liability.
Tell me more, How would you set that up??
make sure they have general liability insurance. In Nebraska that's all you need.
in Idaho you must have an occupational license that meens you are fully insured with either an fin or ein... depends on what your trying to sub?
I would ask and make sure they had business license, insurance, and workers that are legal, for maint. in oregon all you need is a state buis. license, insurance is to cover yourself and clients, not required. Do you guys have any contract forms you might rec amend. or maybe where one would start looking. thanks a bunch this all helps
I don't have any contracts with the guys, they're all people I have known for a while and trust. I ask for proof of their general liability insurance, and if they have workers (some don't) then I ask for proof of workmans comp. It is required for our taxes so it isn't as though I don't trust them, it covers mine and their butts.
thanks, in these days you can't cover your back side enough, these wont be places that people live in so thats a plus, and taking care of them until they sell, it may cover east half of state, gives you all a little more insight on what i am talking about,
