    Become friends with the contractors that you will work with. You should be able to trust them, and them you. be on time and do what you say you will do. After awhile, they don't ask you a price, they'll just ask you to do the work for them.

    The nice thing about sub contracting is that YOU never have to field any customer calls while you're trying to work.
