Question

What is the best way to find good subcontractors? Also, do you have a good source to obtain an agreement with subcontractors?


Answer

Finding good subcontractors can be challenging. You are never certain about their integrity, cleaning and management skills, level of quality, and dependability until they have performed a few jobs for you.
One contractor who is part of our network reported excellent results by placing employment ads on craigslist.com.
A critical aspect is to qualify potential subs by checking their references. Next, plan to give them a test job that you carefully monitor. Watch closely and evaluate their performance capabilities. You might decide that they are not the people you want to partner with.
We have subcontract agreement forms which are a part of our Independent Contractor Training manual. If you would send me an e-mail, I can provide one of the forms.
