    Sub contracting for Blue or Orange

    Has anyone ever sub contracted for Blue or Orange. If so how do they pay the contractor. Is it a percentage or a set fee.

    What kind of sub-ing are you referring to? Our install division frequently subs from the manufacturer's for large industrial installs. The amount is negotiated and agreed upon way in advance and contracts signed to protect both parties.

    Thanks.

    If the job is doing service work on the rtu's at the store, I would say its an ok deal.

    If the job is installing furnaces that the guy at hd sold, I would say don't do it.

    Ha, Funny thing, when my friend said he was going to do that I said the same thing. He has turned down 1/2 of the leads they sent him on, and more than doubled his business. The Hacks do the rest. He makes more money fixing mistakes, and loves it. To each their own. I swear he has the patients of Job. They love him, and know what jobs to send him on. I bet he will double his volume again in the next two years. Not my kind of work though.

    That is exactly what I thought. Hence my response.
