We know you can’t spend your entire life setting in front of your computer and even though you may want us to believe you spend all of your internet time at CubicYard.us, we know it really ain’t true! Yep, we know you’re sneaking off looking at a far-away vacation paradise, or you’re trying to find the best deal on the kids’ school clothes or something really important like that.
Okay, we know what reality is all about; but here’s a question for you! Who’s watching over your business while you’re looking for the kid’s clothes? Well, in a way, we are.
Here’s a little background for you. This site was created by and is still maintained by a family with over 12 years of ups and downs in the field service business. We learned years and years ago that research and communication is vital for maintaining a healthy field service business, whether it is inspections, property preservation, REO, cash for keys, etc. We have always done our research and it goes on today more than ever.
So what happens if we find something that we feel you really should be told about right now? Well, we normally post it on the site, but if you’re at another website shopping for the kids’ clothes or searching for the perfect vacation beach; then you’re not going to know about it right then. You might not know about it until tomorrow when you come back to Cubic Yard again to look around. We have a solution! It’s called the CubicYard Community Toolbar.
The Cubic Yard Community Toolbar is a toolbar that you can add to your internet browser; you know – the stuff at the top of the screen. When you install the toolbar you will from then on have almost instantaneous communications with us. Two way! You can send us notes as well as receive our alerts. Here’s how it works. The toolbar has the capability to let you send messages to us and it has the ability to receive announcements we want to send out. Say we find that XYZ Property Preservation Company has just locked the doors and is leaving the country; and they owe you 5000 bucks. Well, we can send out the notice and you’ll have a message on your screen in ten minutes or so – regardless of what website you are visiting. The toolbar also contains the most popular Cubic Yard Menu links like Snoopers – just one click and you’re reading the latest news about that company! And there’s more:
- a chat room where you can chat confidentially to anyone in the room – invite other contractor to talk in private about so-and-so
- receive our instant industry notices and … you can even reply or ask questions about the notice
- there’s an e-mail notifier that you set up to let you know you have mail
- there’s a local weather gizmo
- and an internet radio player with direct links to Cubic Yard Podcasts
- links to our favorite industry suppliers, products and services we checked out for you
- and more
We hope you will take advantage of this great new tool. An awful lot of time went into it’s development and resources are already allocated to look every day for ways to make it better. We did it for you!
