    I get so annoyed with these companies I was wondering how and what it would take to start a maintance company. I talked to one the other day and I could tell by phone conversation and paper work they was new. I kind of figure if they can do it so could I. I have one little perk my daughter is a new attorney. I think it would be neat to make a lot of money off of plowing by just sitting behind my computer.

    Exactly. Walk into every big box store, promise to save them tons of money, hire idiots to do the work, when it comes time to pay them say they didn't submit the necessary paperwork and keep all the money for yourself. You'll be a millionaire in no time.

    I had one call me on Tuesday about a local credit union price was fine I said okey. Thursday I did service 5 am than 10 am got a call from company saying don't due any service. They said they had the contract but issues with another contactor, I told them I did service that morning they said they would pay for it. I thought hells bells I could do as good as they do. I found out 1 maintenance company I previously worked for doubled my price. Why is corp. America using a service like this?
