[WISPA] WISP Referral Needed in Vancouver, BC (Canada)

Hello WISPs,

Where there's a WISP, there's a way!

Therefore, can any of you fine folks recommend a WISP in Vancouver, BC (Canada)? I have a client event on June 20th and I'm looking for a 100 Mbps circuit from a reliable provider.

Subject: Re: [WISPA] Looking for tower climber

 

            Our daily rate for a 3 man crew is $1000-2000 a day depending on the job. There are several factors involved in the pricing.  If it’s a simple radio swap for a client we will normally quote it on a per foot basis up front.  The key in our business is we treat the regulars quite well.  Discounts, flexible availability, etc.  

 

            Anyway, didn’t want to get into a sales pitch.  We are seeing $1500-3000 a day for a full crew with all the equipment.  Winches, rope, blocks, etc. The biggest reason I see the rates climbing is insurance and consistency in work.  

 

            If you have a climber on staff I am seeing $20-30 an hour.  Most companies I know give their guys a bonus if they climb more than usual in a week or something.  They company is paying out  more than the $20-30 when you figure in insurance, workers comp, certs, etc.

What is the general rate for qualified, insured tower climbers?

I think it is important to note that the tower climbing industry is 
full of garbage and liabilities waiting to happen.  Let me elaborate.

A large amount of companies hire people and pay them as 1099 
independent contractors in an effort to avoid having to pay taxes and 
workman's compensation, to avoid overtime, and to help isolate them in 
the event of accident or damage. These are misclassified positions and 
is nothing more than a scam to use the employees.

When hiring any company to do tower climbing you should always secure 
a certificate of insurance naming your company as an additional 
insured. You should contact the carrier and verify that the company's 
policy is valid and in force. The copying of certificates and 
forgeries are a very common problem. Another issue is 
misclassification of the workman's comp and liability policy. They may 
have a 1 million dollar policy but may be classified as a landscaper 
or electrician which will not properly represent the work being performed.

Another item that should be secured is a hold harmless certificate 
where the climbers company assumes all responsibility for the work 
being performed and holds your company, employees, officers and any 
property holders harmless for the work and subsequent damage, injuries 
or deaths that result from their work. If they don't want to sign a 
hold-harmless......move on and find another company.

There are a ton of crews with pickup trucks and trailers calling 
themselves tower companies. Do your research.  If they are giving you 
a "really great price" or the price seems low, they are probably not 
properly licensed, insured and/or trained.

Remember.....you get what you pay for.....

Our previous company for big jobs did not have the work comp and

The insurance company is now saying he is no longer covered under our 
policy without hiring him as an employee.
