Sorry guys, but you're about to find out why small contractors are small. Dealing with handymen is like trying to herd cats....I don't want to do these jobs but it could be time to hire a couple of handymen...
Huh? Why'd you place the ad if you don't want the jobs it generates?Mike Finley said:the handyman ad I placed is generating phone calls now. I don't want to do these jobs
I really think that's the way to go. I try hard as heck to do that with all repair estimates unelss they are directly near to me. In those cases I don't mind meeting my neighbors for a few minutes.PipeGuy said:IMO, hourly rate dude - no estimates, no partial hours. Cost plus a fee on materials. Maybe a high 'not to exceed' $ figure for those souls that just can't make a descision without a number in their head. If it turns into a 'side' job its days are numbered.
I'd rather work with a bunch of crazy old church-ladies.Mike Finley said:Do you think I am unrealistic in thinking a couple of semi-retired old coots would be a good idea to start with?
