Hi Foreclosure Cleanup Business Owners,
Cleanout Job: Bid Needed
Hi everyone ... Client needs a bid on CLEANOUT AND FURNITURE REMOVAL for 1,800 square feet home cleanout in Riverdale, GA (Atlanta area). The house is 3 bedrooms, 2 3/4 baths, has basement, garage, front porch, storage room, living room, dining room, etc. See gist of job below:
General Cleaning: General cleaning of full home, garage, and basement needed, including appliances (refrigerator, stove, microwave, and dishwasher).
Minor Furniture to Be Moved Out: Per the potential client, there are a few furniture items in the home as well that will need to be moved: couch, wall unit, chairs, miscellaneous items. Some items will be left in the home, but the owner will tag the items to be left.
Pertinent Dates: The owners are preparing the home to be rented out December 1st, so the cleanout needs be done some time after the 18th of November (home occupied now) for December 1st occupancy.
Want to Bid? If interested in bidding on the job, simply email me at email@example.com before 7:00 PM Sunday, November 7th, 2010, and I will give you contact info of the potential client. Simply type "RIVERDALE HOME" in your subject line and I will email you client name and phone number.
We have no more info on job other than what's stated above, so please save any questions for the potential client. If you get the job, this will be between you and the client. We are simply passing the info on as part of our informal outsourcing.
TIP: Don't bid without seeing the home and the actual items to be moved. Your idea of "minor" furniture may be different from the client's idea. Make sure you protect yourself by stating on your contract that if more items are in the home than originally visible during your written estimate, the price will change. Take time to write out all items that you have to move on your estimate form so you and the client have a clear understanding on what has to be moved out.
Good luck to you in the bidding process!
