Most contractors are pretty good at what they do. Some contractors are outstanding at what they do. Normally, the outstanding contractors have gained that reputation because of their ability to turn out quality work and the ability to turn out quality work requires many talents, two of which are always close to the top of the chart in importance: focus and dedication.
This manual was written for the contractor that is focused and dedicated to other portions of the business. Read it, understand it and assign your company research tasks to someone you trust. Family maybe?
I imagine you will agree with me that most contractors are not internet research experts. After all, you know what they say about trying to do too many things at once. So, historically, contractors do what contractors do and internet research experts do what they do and never the twain shall meet. This manual was written for the contractor that is not an internet research expert and does not want to be. Read the manual. Spend twenty minutes researching a company or spend hours if you like. You don’t have to be an expert. Just try the examples in the manual.
Then if you still don’t care to do the research yourself, designate it to someone else. I do not recommend you let an employee do this for you. Do it yourself, have a trusted family member do it or hire a pro after you understand it. The growth of the property preservation business has been unbelievable resulting in thousands of new contractors and bunches of companies looking for contractors. The problem is, contractors are contractors. They either do not know they should check out their potential business partners, or they know they should but don’t have the time or the funds to hire the experts. Hire experts for what? To check out the companies of course!
This manual was written for new contractors, the contractor with time or financial constraints. Why would you want to check out the companies when all you want to do is fix up some houses and make some money? Well, because a lot of what goes on in the property preservation business is orchestrated by some pretty bad boys. There are legitimate companies that are just so-so or have a bad reputation with contractors, and of course you have the cream-of-the-crop companies that have a hard time shining through all the crap!
This manual was written for the contractor that wants to work with the best of the best companies and avoid the problem companies. So why did I write this manual? I wrote it to teach you how to find and interpret information about companies. By finding this information you will get a good indication as to the character of the company. Do they have a lousy reputation? Are they new or have they been around for a while. Does anything look fishy? Are they trying to be something they are not? Do they pay on time? Do they have a reputation of adjusting invoices or just not paying at all? Are they the ideal company you should do everything you can to work with?
