Do not do work for this company!!!

 

They pull you in by giving you a few jobs and paying you quickly on them. They then call and ask to give you more work.  They start to pile and pile it on and pay a little here and there to keep you going. After a few months the checks stop coming and your stuck for $20k! 

 

Has anyone else had a bad experience with them?

If you do any billable work,establish a credit limit just like parts suppliers do. For example quit doing any jobs at a $1000 until they pay up. If they don't like it,too bad.

If you do billable work, come to my area. You'll get all the work you can handle. And so will your collections department.

LOL! 

 

This is the first time I have had a problem with bailable work. Guess I have been lucky!

Have to be careful with third party warranty companies, even the well established ones.  Many are slow to pay or no pay, even after authorizing the work.  Won't do service for any of them anymore with the exception of Assurant.  It's too bad, too.  Many relators and homesellers use these companies that provide whole house warranties as a selling tool.  Introduces servicers to a larger network of references and expands customer base.  Unfortunately they restrict what you can charge for parts and labor and depending on the repair can wind up costing you money.
