A Dozen Reasons to Contract with Mr. B’s for Your Business’ Snow Removal

Winter weather is on its way! In just a few months, you’ll be looking out over snow covered streets and wondering how much ice accumulated overnight. One thing you WON’T have to worry about is how to keep your business’s parking lots and sidewalks clear of dangerous snow and ice. Mr. B’s Lawn Care is also a full service, professional snow removal company. There are lots of reasons to contract out your snow removal needs for 2017-2018, including:

  1. You’re too busy running your business to find someone to shovel and plow after every snow storm.
  2. Hiring someone without insurance or the right equipment is a disaster waiting to happen and could cost you big bucks.
  3. Buying and maintaining your own trucks, plows and salt spreaders is expensive, and you have to pay for them even if there isn’t any snow or ice.
  4. You can’t rely on your best buddy from Junior High to be on time. Sure, he’s fun on the weekends, but reliable? Not so much.
  5. Your customers are your most important commodity, so you want to make sure they can visit you no matter what the weather is like.
  6. Mr. B’s has been plowing, treating and shoveling parking lots, driveways and sidewalks since 1991.
  7. We have the experience needed to do the job right. We won’t drive over the curbs or pile the snow so high that it creates a visibility problem.
  8. Mr. B’s monitors the weather constantly, so we’ll know that we need to be out plowing and applying ice melt hours before you even roll out of bed for that morning shower.
  9. We use Ice B’Gone Magic Liquid Ice Melt to protect your driveways, parking lots and sidewalks from rock salt damage.
  10. We use Ice B’Gone Magic Liquid Ice Melt because we love animals. It won’t irritate their feet or cause cracking of their pads; and it’s non-toxic, so pets won’t get sick if they ingest it.
  11. Your business is our priority. When we have a contract with you for snow removal and ice melt application, our trucks are out well before dawn to ensure that your business will be able to open safely and on time.
  12. Our pricing is fair and reasonable. Don’t depend on higher priced, national chains; they charge a premium and aren’t as familiar with the area as Mr. B and his professional snow plow team.

The 3 Biggest Problems Landlords Face & How To Deal With Them

Landlords face a multitude of problems when they manage or lease out apartments or houses, but most agree that there are three major problems they have in common. If they can surmount these issues, they will be on the road to stress-free rental management.

Tenants Who Are Behind on the Rent

Every landlord has that one tenant who can’t seem to pay their rent on time. They always have a story about why they can’t pay on time or they simply avoid their landlord. If this is a recurring theme with your tenants, it’s time to take action. You can try several different techniques depending on the reliability of the tenants:

  • Offer a payment plan that works for your tenants. Maybe your tenants get paid bi-weekly or weekly. If so, consider letting them pay you on their pay days. While this means collecting rent more often, it also gives tenants the chance to pay when they are flush with funds.
  • Offer tenants who pay on time a discount on their rent payments.
  • Offer tenants a discount if they will set up an automatic payment on their bank account. The automatic payments will also mean you won’t have to chase your tenants down each month for a rent payment.
  • Charging a late fee of 5% or a flat late fee can motivate renters to pay on time. You need to clearly outline what the late fees are in each tenant’s lease for this to be legal.

Damage Caused by Tenants

You always risk damage to your property when a tenant moves out. Whether they were simply slobs or they damaged your property out of spite or anger, you can use the deposit money you received when they signed the lease to pay for repairs. Always make a visit to the property before your tenants leave and do a walk-through, taking photos of any damage so that you have evidence if they dispute the damage or demand the return of their deposit.

If the damage is so excessive that the deposit money won’t cover the repairs, you can file a civil complaint against them. If you win in court, a Judgment will be filed in your favor. You will have to track down your former tenants, however, and try to get them to pay. In many cases this can be time consuming and tedious. Your best bet at this point is often to turn over the Judgment to a company that specializes in judgment recovery services. They have the resources to track down the debtors, discover any assets they have and get them to pay. A judgment recovery firm such as ABR Judgment Recovery can also make arrangements for a Sheriff’s Sale of your tenant’s assets to recoup your losses.

The Cost of Evicting Tenants

Finally, having to evict tenants is a costly and complex process. This is generally a last resort for landlords for good reason. If you have tenants who are behind on their rent, an eviction can force them to move out so that you can find paying tenants. To get an eviction started, landlords must file the appropriate legal paperwork and pay the court fees. You’ll also have to pay someone to serve the paperwork on the current tenants. Add in the cost of changing the locks, repainting, cleaning carpets, etc. to prepare the property for new tenants and you’ll see why landlords hate to evict someone.

In most cases, you’ll also have to file a Judgment against them for any back rent owed. Once again, a judgment recovery professional can track down former tenants and ensure that they pay what is owed to you. These specialists are adept at tracking down debtors and discovering bank accounts, automobiles and other assets that can be sold or taken to cover the money owed to you as a landlord. By contacting ABR Judgment Recovery, you’ll minimize the time, money and energy you have to spend and maximize your chances of getting what your former tenants owe you.

Six Reasons to Let ABR Judgment Recovery Handle Your Judgments Against Former Tenants

You’ve just won a Judgment against a former tenant – Congratulations! But did you know that there’s still a LOT of work to be done before you ever see any of the money you’re owed? Yep! In fact, many landlords NEVER get the money because it’s so hard to track down the people who owe the money and even harder to force them to pay up! Why? There are six reasons why it’s so tough to get paid after a Judgment is filed:

  1. There are sixty-seven different counties in Pennsylvania. If you have a Judgment against someone in Pennsylvania, you will have to file the Judgment in every county in order to make sure that a lien is placed against former tenants’ properties. Does the tenant own property in other states as well? Plan on having to file in multiple counties in those states as well. That’s LOTS of papework and research!
  2. You have to renew each Judgment every five years or else they lapse. Just like the original Judgments, a Revival of Judgment will need to be filed in every county were the former tenant might have property in order to collect on the lien. Will you remember to do this every five years? In every county?
  3. Did you know that not all Judgments are the same? Some Magistrate Court judgments won’t show up on credit reports, so they won’t serve as liens against property.
  4. Even after a Judgment is filed, there is additional paperwork – including a Writ of Execution – that will have to be created and filed before a sheriff can act on your behalf to collect the debt by seizing property or freezing a bank account. No Writ, no help from the Sheriff, even though you’ve already won the Judgment!
  5. When assets such as property or automobiles are seized to pay debts, you’ll lose a portion of the proceeds in order to pay the sheriff for his service. You could lose literally thousands of dollars of the original Judgment in fees and services.
  6. If there is a sheriff’s sale of land or property, expect to pay the sheriff’s office even more in court costs. These vary from county to county, so you’ll have to research the costs for the appropriate counties and be prepared to pay those fees before you claim the proceeds of the sale or take possession of the property. This can run into thousands of dollars out-of-pocket, meaning you won’t get anywhere near recouping your losses.

Whew! It all sounds pretty complicated, doesn’t it? Rather than waste days or even weeks of your time trying to track down a former tenant, research what they own, then try to collect on the Judgment yourself, why not contact ABR Judgment Recovery, LLC and let US do all the legwork?!

The fact is, over 75% of court Judgments are never recovered because collecting the Judgment is the responsibility of the landlord! You don’t have time to research and file the paperwork, do the legwork and make sure a lien is in place – but ABR Judgment Recovery DOES have the time AND the expertise!

Let us recovery the money that is legally owed to you – it’s what we specialize in, and we have the experience and skills to do it properly every time!

Wasting Time on Judgment Recovery?

Why is collecting on a judgment so difficult? 

  • Over 75% of all court judgments are never recovered
  • Many debtors hide their assets
  • Collecting on a judgment is your responsibility, not the court’s
  • The high cost of investigating, discovering and obtaining assets often costs as much or more than the judgment itself
  • Seizure of assets may leave you with personal property you don’t need or want
  • It wastes your time and money

ABR Judgment Recovery –

We succeed where others haven’t!

3815191 - scrap paper on wooden floor around waste paper basketIt would be so nice if being awarded a judgment was the end of the process. You could simply mail your former tenant a copy of the Judgment and he would immediately pay up. But it won’t happen that way. In fact, most of the time the person who owes you money will simply toss the judgment in the trash can without responding or making any effort to pay you what they owe you.

That’s where ABR Judgment Recovery comes in…

Six Great Reasons Why Outsourcing Your Company’s Lawn Care Is A Smart Idea

“Your company will appreciate not having to deal with the many problems that can arise if you’re doing your own grounds keeping.”

Your business’s outward appearance can make an instant impression on clients and customers. If you’re properly maintaining the grounds and keeping the plant life thriving you can make an excellent first impression, but this can be time-consuming and expensive. Outsourcing the grounds keeping to a professional lawn service may be the ideal solution, particularly if you need year round grounds work such as mowing in the summer and snow shoveling in the winter. There are six great reasons your company should outsource your lawn care that can save you time and money:

 1. No Need to Tie Up Capital – The cost of purchasing, fueling and maintaining lawn tractors, edgers, a snow plow and other equipment can be significant. Add wages and benefits for a grounds crew and you’ll be tying up a significant amount of money.

2. It May Be Tax Deductible – Because maintaining your property is a business expense, the cost of hiring a professional lawn care service is tax deductible in most cases. You’ll love the deduction when tax time rolls around. Be sure to ask your tax consultant how much you can deduct.

3. No Training Necessary – Properly training your grounds crew and keeping them up to date on the latest innovations in everything from weed control to irrigation can be expensive. You also won’t have to worry about providing safety gear or the appropriate clothing to your grounds keepers.

4. No Workers’ Compensation Concerns – A worker’s compensation claim can put your company in a bind if someone on your grounds crew is seriously injured on the job. There is a relatively high rate of workers’ compensation claims filed by grounds keepers because they do heavy lifting and repetitive tasks.

5. Compliance Issues – Lawn care is expensive in part because you have to keep up to date on current compliance issues. Your company will need to know what the current regulations are on proper use of fertilizers, weed killers and more so that you are in compliance with federal and state laws regarding potentially hazardous chemicals.

6. Lower Cost of Supplies – The cost of fertilizers, weed control products and other products needed to maintain an attractive lawn can be cost prohibitive. Professional lawn services, however, buy these products in bulk at reduced prices and they will pass some of that savings on to you.

In addition to the six great reasons outlined above, your company will also appreciate not having to deal with the many problems that can arise if you’re doing your own grounds keeping. No need to make sure your employees are mowing the grass regularly, no need to call someone in the middle of the night to get a snow plow out to clear your parking lot after a heavy snowfall. Simplifying your lawn care has never been easier – just contact Mr. B’s Lawn Service or Penn Turf to schedule a time for a free estimate. We’ll do the hard work for you!
