This is about my brother as a contractor and another business where he works. I pretty much know what you need to do ahead of time, but sometimes it still doesn't work out. I also know that this type of a website would definately have to go thru a lawyer before I'd ever proceed. I'm just looking for any sites that may already be out there to see how they set it up and so forth.How do you get ripped off alot ? You should learn after a couple of times and change the way you write up contracts and schedule payments so that it will avoid these types of things.
I would definetly make sure I had a disclaimer if I was starting that website you are talking about.
BOY!!!My brother is a contractor and this was his idea. He gets ripped off a lot....
LOL!!! sorry Bud I am laughing with you, not at you. In the toughest and most extreme lessons there is a positive side to the experience gained as painful as it is to admit. Just came to the end of a $21,000.00 lesson. A laugh I am sure you understand.$31,000.00. There was a lesson in that last one. It has never happened again.
I don't operate on that large of a scale, I am actually a tiny little contractor, and although I won't bore you with the details, don't think my head didn't go there a time or two. But the people involved were simple minded and it really wouldn't have made a difference... I have a good wife who is very supporting of me and we got through it. Energy at times like that is best served on solutions and keeping my side of the road clean no matter what. Besides, to waste a perfectly good paint can on people like that... just not worth it.$21,000 .....
I am glad I dont operate on that large of a scale, I would definetly be in prison.
There is a painter that goes into the loacl paint store that ripped off another painter I know for $15,000. I asked the guy arent you gonna say something to him ?
His answer was what good would it do.
I told him you are already into this guy for 15, you give me another $1000 and I will drag his little a$$ outside and pound him in the face with a quart of paint untill you want me to stop. He declined my offer.
You guys kept your cool though and are still free men so I have to say your business sense far outweighs anything I have to offer.
