We have traditionally used 3rd parties for all repairs and maintenance. We have one main provider for all ‘handyman’ work and they are our busiest tradesmen. Recently they raised their prices and instituting a few rules like minimum call out charge.
Its not easy to find another provider so I am considering other options.
- Hire a Head of R and M (pay him wages or commissions, or a mixture)
-Task him with building a team of tradies that work for us
- Divert all business to our in house team
- Charge LLs the historic pricing we got from our 3rd party trademan before he hiked his rates (so LL is not disadvantaged and all is transparent)
Anyone done anything similar?
