    I dont know if this is the right palce for this but oh well

    When a customer asks you to do a service that your not set up to do do you tell them about a company that does that service or do you sub-contract it out?

    We have a network of companies we do business with. When a customer wants a service that I don't do I make a call and they work though me . And we do the same for them. The only way we turn down business is if thier to cheap!

    I would also sub it out to someone, but try to do with that person so you can learn whatever it is. But if its something you now how to do then just rent the equipment, these days they rent out just about every kind of equipment out there.

    If the job I can't do is part of the job that I can do, then I sub it out. If the job in whole is something that I can't do, then I refer somebody else.
