Well I got no one to pay a commission on that one lol
I pay my guys 30% they do it on their own 15% if they have helped.
If I am there they get to me $22 an hour
And I take out taxes but everybody was busy

The hardest thing about it is my number one man (my son) was on vacation with friends and I didn't want to tell him what was going on and make him feel guilty he got home he found out that I was on my own drove all the way out there while I was winding up the hose and he feels guilty pretty he shouldn't I took it on I did it and I thought I would have helped while he was on vacation.
The thing is he even worse I weigh over bit it hoping they wouldn't pull the trigger but they said we were the only ones willing to do it on New year's weekend

My sons my best helper too. If I could find anyone who would work like him I’d be set. I love working with my kids. They don’t ever know how much we do for them and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I'd vlm most jobs that big. I've done about 10k of that before in a night without any trouble. That's an easy night.
The customer didn't want the vlm I tried so hard to talk them into it. But apparently their staff experimented with Whittaker systems and ruined the old carpet ( I don't know how supposed to be idiot proof)so the first time through and wanted me to extract now we have them on a maintenance program with keys and a code . And a plus is their staffs not even allowed to touch the carpet they have to call me
Oh and they gave me the old Whittaker machine
