Well you’d never get out of bed with thinking like that.

You also take more risk.. if the client doesn't pay up the team you employed still want paying. 

If you screw up and it takes twice as long same..  Most if not all of us will have lost money on jobs now and again.. 


It can also increase my risk too. Can you afford to pay me if the client doesn't pay you.. If you have employed me but don't get paid I will be chasing you and if you don't have the ability to pay it is you I will be persusing in the courts but that's not much help if you don't have a pot to p in.. 


When you start to think about it it gets complicated... 

More risk, more reward.

I’ve never taken anyone to court in 23 years.

You’re doing it wrong, look at the tree, quote it with plenty of fat, then sub in a firm to provide a chipper and groundies, do it, keep more of the money.

Maybe. Subbing in would mean sorting out my own insurance. I don't get enough jobs in (yet) for that to make financial sense. I've thought about it, and this is what suits my situation best at the moment.


The team we have work together extremely well. Working with people I know, like and rate is attractive.
