Afternoon chaps,

I was wondering how is the best way of contacting fridge and ac company's to offer my services sub contracting.
Email, letter or phone.?
I'm only starting off doing service calls on evenings and weekends but I'm struggling to get any response from the company's I have contacted.
Cheers
Bryan

Hunt facebook and linkedin groups, most companies would need you available full time, hard to get work with limited hours.

Phone by a mile - use those all inclusive minutes up!
Emails get ignored.
Letter minimum 50p each with postage.
Linkedin need subscription after so many contacts.
I did it years ago and was worth it. Spent 2 days on phone and got loads of good contacts.
RAC handbook/ACR news have loads of companies available on them.

What type of work are you doing - Service and or installs?
PM and may be able to give some pointers as to who uses subbies:)
Can't say who I work for but .........

I cannot pm you afm as it say you don't accept them on your account.
