A properly licensed contractor helps to reassure local residents that the contractor is indeed qualified and also weeds out the unscrupulous contractors.
Monsey, NY (PRWEB) November 15, 2012
Business Licenses, LLC, the leading end-to-end governmental business license compliance company in the U.S. is offering a licensing services package to speed up the contractor’s ability to get to work cleaning up the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. The Sandy Package by Business Licenses, LLC will help contractors determine the proper licenses required for the work that they are performing, and will offer contractors to file the required licenses on the contractors’ behalf, enabling the contractor to quickly get up to speed helping with the cleanup.
Contractors or their office staff can contact Business Licenses, LLC directly to receive the Sandy package at (800)-679-3611 or on the web at http://www.businesslicenses.com/contact-us.php. Governmental agencies that require additional licensing staff support can contact our jurisdictional support team at (845) 356-8390 ext. 188 or at starrd(at)businesslicenses(dot)com.
“In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, everyone is focused on cleaning up and restoring life to some level of normalcy,” says Doug Starr, VP, Business Licenses, LLC. “Still, business licenses are required as a condition for performing work. Proper licensing encourages legitimate contractors to maintain contact with the local government, which enhances the accountability for the work performed in the local community. Licensing can be quick and easy for contractors when using our experienced licensing team to expedite the required filings. A properly licensed contractor helps to reassure local residents that the contractor is indeed qualified and also weeds out the unscrupulous contractors that may come into the area to take advantage of the difficult conditions.”
During the cleanup, business licensing requirements are still in effect. In New York State, for example, NYC, Nassau, Suffolk, Putnam, Rockland, Westchester still require licenses. Contractors can call us to determine exactly what licenses are currently required for their jobs and for assistance with filing for those licenses.
Storm victims should always watch out for unscrupulous businesses that prey on those seeking to repair their homes. Storm victims should ask to see a contractor’s license before work is performed. In addition, storm victims are urged to avoid contractors that ask victims to get required building permits. It could mean that the contractor is unlicensed or has a bad track record, and is therefore reluctant to deal with the local building inspector.
