Hello Business Owners,
I hope the day is going well for you. A foreclosure cleanup job request just came in from an old client ... see below for details (this is the email, verbatim, as it came from client):
Would you let me know if you want to bid on clearing out a really nasty house. It's in the city of Decatur (Atlanta area). It smells strongly of urine, and there is a lot of newspaper and some furniture. Some dead animals have been found.(and removed, but there may be others) Its about 1300 sq ft. there may be other stuff I don't know about."
Want to Bid? If interested in bidding on the job, simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org before 6:00 PM Thursday, June 9, 2011, and I will give you contact info of the potential client. Simply type "DECATUR BID" in your subject line, and I will email you the client's name and phone number.
Remember, we have no more info on the job other than what's stated above, so please save any questions for the potential client. If you get the cleanup job, this will be between you and the client. We are simply passing the info on as part of our informal outsourcing.
Good luck to you in the bidding process!

Tip: To locate your County Clerk's Office, GOOGLE phrases like "Your County Name" and County Clerk; or "Your City Name" and "County Clerk".
Search for Business "Licenses and Permits" Regulations by State: Every business needs one or more federal, state or local licenses or permits to operate. Licenses can range from a basic operating license to very specific permits. Regulations vary by industry, state and locality, so it's very important to understand the licensing rules where your business is located. Not complying with licensing and permitting regulations can lead to expensive fines and put your business at serious risk.

Help Devising a Zip Code List: In your effort to come up with a list of zip codes in which your company does business (or in which your company can do business), use the United States Post Office's Zip Code Finder. You can find a ZIP Code by entering an address, and you can also search for a partial address, such as "Green Street, Los Angeles, CA." Find it at this link: http://zip4.usps.com/zip4/welcome.jsp.
D-U-N-S Number Tip: Don't "pay" for a D-U-N-S Number! Some companies charge $149 and up when they box it with other services. Getting your number is free, free, free if you are signing up as a vendor on government contract registration websites.
