If you don’t sell or build bunk beds then its a “Business opportunity”

I’m not sure I get your point. We build and sell many things but bunk beds are not one of them. I simply have people in certain parts of the country that want large products such as kitchen islands and bathroom vanities that are generally too large and expensive to ship. That’s why I’m looking for skilled craftsmen in certain locations that could build these items and then deliver them locally or have the customer pick them up. I am looking to subcontract this work out to the right people on a project by project basis. For example: I have someone in Denver looking for a kitchen island. I would give all the specifics to the craftsman in that area and also tell them how much I would pay them. They can then accept the job or not.

I sure would need some questions answered for something like that. Like who buys the material, and what guarantees are there of getting paid? Sounds too good to be true.

I’m in southern AZ, so it doesn’t matter anyway.

Please take a look at the products on this web site: There you will find typical prices. We will pay you 80% of the project price, minus the CC trans fee. It’s that simple and straightforward.

We have been in business since 2003. Our products are in homes in every state in the U.S. including Alaska and Hawaii; also Jamaica, Canada, England, Germany, Belgium, and France. We have many, many repeat customers.

Regarding quality control; quality, on time, is what we expect from all of our builders. Our workmanship is guaranteed 100% to our customers. We expect the same from our builders to us. On each and every project, we will ask you to agree that you are willing to take 100% of the responsibility for the customer’s satisfaction, up to and including giving them back 100% of their total purchase price if necessary. Considering that, in most instances, you will be delivering your own work to the customer we are sure you will want it to be your very best. The more satisfied the customers are the more repeat business we get. And we always try to give any repeat business to the same builder.

I’m sorry but we are not looking for people in the Indy area or in AZ right now. But if things change in the future I will try to contact you.
