    What ya gonna do when something happens and there is an insurance claim?

    My opinion? Side jobbers screw up our industry.

    bad idea
    If your going to do a pizza chain you can't do that as side work.
    impossible. forget about it

    Or you could get liscense and insurance and go for it

    No insurance...

    Price slashing...

    Parts "borrowing"...

    I can't think of one good reason a legitimate business owner would allow moonlighting.

    I catch my guys doing it and it's instant termination.

    They are paid fairly and have plenty of work.

    Those who do it see the opportunity to make the difference between what we would charge for a repair and what they make and assume it's mostly profit...one bad experience and they'll see just where that profit go's.
