what i have found below it should be enough to give anyone with any sense a idea
that the companies like Boyd Group JN Philipps ect do not get this size and buyout competitors
by accepting deep discounts from 3rd party corrupt admin's much like their own.These companies have legal teams that work out GUARANTEED AVERAGE PRICING with a kick back bonus at the end of the year with all insurance companies same as SGC.
Anyone of you can do the same with the right legal team and pockets of cash.
The problem is, everyone of you have that complains on this site about how corrupt the system is
allows it to be because you never challenge the system in court.
Until they get challenged they will keep you and your business financially where they want you.
It is proven the system unchallenged will remain the same and as the bigger competitors get bought out, you are then left with the backyard auto glass guys that work for anything that is offered. They will even work for food soon.
WE HAVE DEEP POCKETS
