“The reason the subcontractor program started is because our customers who were really happy with our services have asked if we can do work for them in other areas of the country,” Mike Palubiak of Perfect Power Wash in Akron, Ohio explained. So he faced a choice: turn down work requests or find reputable cleaning professionals who could help him. Being the entrepreneur that he is, Palubiak has chosen to find help.
“If you’re in the pressure washing field, have insurance, workers comp, the correct equipment, and follow some guidelines on what needs to be done and are willing to make sure the customer is happy, there could be an opportunity here for you,” he explained. “A lot of guys working with us now love it because they’re not having to do a lot of marketing or cold calling. They prefer to wash rather than sell, and we have the support staff to make that happen.”
Essentially, Perfect Power Wash is building a subcontractor network so that when job requests come in from other areas of the country – either from the property management and insurance companies they already serve, or from customers who find their website – Perfect Power Wash can fulfill the work. They email their network of area contractors when jobs come up, and if the approved contractors can meet the customer’s schedule, they do the job. Perfect Power Wash handles the rest.
“It’s been a great thing for me – percentage wise and value wise – opening new doors and opportunities for my business,” explained Ken Ramsey of Ramsey’s Property Maintenance in Syracuse, New York, who has been working with Perfect Power Wash for two years now. “Everything has been smooth sailing and I’m definitely happy to be involved. I’m very appreciative for the opportunity the subcontractor program has given me.”
And that’s the point behind the program, according to Palubiak. “We see an opportunity to help other people in the pressure washing field who want to make more money. We have a lot of companies who are doing that right now and it’s working well for them.”
Palubiak also emphasized that participating “doesn’t cost you anything. We’re just sending
you work. If the schedule works for you, get it done and we’ll send you a check.”
