How to Supplement: A photo tip to make more money

As a construction company, you or your crews probably use a generator on many of your jobs, right? Are you supplementing for it? If not, you’re leaving money that you are owed on the table.

Some might argue that it’s not worth the hassle. Sure, most carriers will only allot around $170 for the use of a generator, so we get why it may seem like a hassle with little reward.

But, let’s do the math. If you supplement your generator use for 100 jobs throughout the year, and have a 90% approval rating (which we do), that’s an extra $17,000 for your business. $17,000 is a pretty nice company trip, a down payment on a new truck, or extra money to support your kid’s video game habit.
