    Code Blue

    The local more floods franchise seems to do very well. I do not know a lot about there program since there is no openings in my area. I believe they teach you how to build off of referrals from plumbers and other lead sources. I'm sure there is more to them then that but that is what the local...

They want to look at your books and believe you need to show that you made over 500k for each of the last 2 years, have x amount of sf warehouse- office space with signage and lighting outside. Not trying to be a bad...

    Code Blue

    Go with a company like restoration SOS if you want a lead here and there. If you are new to the business you probably will not have enough equipment or the specialty equipment code blue requires.

    Code Blue

    I know this will not sound professional but code blue sucks they can go f themselves. I would rather eat food out of the garbage then work for that company. Actuly you will be eating out of the garbage if you work for them at there rates. Ok I feel a little better now

    If you are not a local company and are not being hired from an insurance company I would be looking to be paid up front. In these situations most claims are not covered be careful. There are plenty of people after a hurricane that will pay your price and like Scott said move on if they don't...
