      Sure, you may request the same professional to service your building every time. However, we strongly recommend rotating at least two team members on the building’s duties in case the primary team member is out sick or goes on vacation. The other member can jump right in and ensure that service is consistent and uninterrupted. Moreover, having multiple rotating team members is included for free in the base service charge. Why resist?

Your building will be assigned a dedicated super or porter with a professional track record. He/ they will be your primary Porter or Super. However, when your primary Super or Porter is out sick, on vacation, or is otherwise unavailable, there may be other porters or supers who fill in for him and pick up his tasks.

While your residents may not be accustomed to seeing new faces in the building from time to time, we highly recommend implementing a team of porters or supers other than the primary Porter or Super for handling the building’s tasks throughout the year.

This reduces the learning curve that’s needed for a backup Super or Porter to become familiar with your building if your primary Super or Porter is out sick, etc.

Knowing your building’s layout and schedule ahead of time, and being able to jump right into the role of the primary Super or Porter, your building maintenance services will be kept going without disruption, no matter what happens.

If your building residents are sensitive to these personnel changes, we can send all residents a notice of the new team member(s) with photos and background profile in advance of the service.

Anytime you experience an emergency, contact us and we’ll send a Super over right away. The only time this won’t happen right away is if the management or Board has indicated a preference for its own protocol.

We may send the assigned Super or another available Super within our network.

In general, there may be charges when:

  • Your Super is not at the building; or

  • if the emergency and its aftermath cannot be resolved within 15 minutes or less

*There is no charge for using our 24/7 emergency call center or connecting to our remote troubleshooters.

In general, if your Super is rushed to the building in order to address an emergency when he’s not normally scheduled, there may be a visiting charge.

Ask if the emergency is happening during normal business hours (Monday thru Friday, 8am to 5pm) or after-hours (all other times, including holidays)?

If the emergency occurs during business hours, this situation will incur a charge of 75 (a base visiting charge) and any work will be charged according to our normal hourly rates (usually 55 to 95 depending on the level of expertise the situation calls for, i.e. advanced plumbing). The charge and rates are applied per person, but it’s rare that more than one Super needs to respond. But, to have the option to have multiple Supers respond to an emergency is something our customers find valuable.

If the emergency occurs during after-hours, there’s a visiting charge of 150 and any work will be charged time and half.

Based on our data, emergencies don’t occur as often as you may think. But, if you’re concerned about the costs, here’s what you can do:

First, ask us about our “credit system” where a building can purchase a bundle of hours upfront at a steep discount to apply to future events, such as emergencies. This helps to save our billing and collections overhead so we can pass these saving to you.

You can also save costs now by, one, using our remote problem-solving option as much as possible; and (2) helping us by being hands-on for emergencies at the building. Learn and implement our critical protocols for handling emergencies (we’ll help you with how-to videos customized for your building).

Any tool, equipment or supplies needed on a regular basis for your super’s routine performance of duties are not included in our fee and must be provided by the building. Such items are:

  • mop
  • broom and dustpan
  • paper towels/ rags
  • vacuum
  • garbage and recycling bags
  • cleaning solutions
  • safety gloves
  • snow shovels and ice melt
  • batteries for the smoke/ carbon monoxide detector

 In order to give your super the right tools and materials he needs to get the job done successfully, we ask that these items are made readily available and, if missing, provided promptly so as to keep his or her work flowing without interruption. We’ll let you know such items run low and when your super will need them.

If you prefer, or in the case of emergency, we can also provide these items to the building. When we do, we attach a small fee to our purchase cost to cover some administrative coordination and for the upfront use of our credit.     

 For most jobs, such as repair work, your super will bring and use his own tools related to the work, such as a hammer, screwdriver and wrench, which won’t be charged to the building.  Rental tool cost, supplies and materials, on the other hand, may or may not be included in the overall price, so please feel free to check with us beforehand. 

 For any supplies and materials that are purchased by the building for building use will be kept orderly by the super and properly accounted for. Tools purchased by the building will be kept in proper working condition.

      We totally understand – taxes are a bummer.

      However, New York State and New York City requires that such services that we and our supers provide are subject to sales tax. The City Sales Tax rate is 4.5%, NY State Sales and Use Tax is 4% and the Metropolitan Commuter Transportation District surcharge is 0.375%, for a total Sales and Use Tax of 8.875 percent.

In general, if your Super is rushed to the building in order to address an emergency when he’s not normally scheduled, there may be a visiting charge.

Ask if the emergency is happening during normal business hours (Monday thru Friday, 8am to 5pm) or after-hours (all other times, including holidays)?

If the emergency occurs during business hours, this situation will incur a charge of 75 (a base visiting charge) and any work will be charged according to our normal hourly rates (usually 55 to 95 depending on the level of expertise the situation calls for, i.e. advanced plumbing). The charge and rates are applied per person, but it’s rare that more than one Super needs to respond. But, to have the option to have multiple Supers respond to an emergency is something our customers find valuable.

If the emergency occurs during after-hours, there’s a visiting charge of 150 and any work will be charged time and half.

Based on our data, emergencies don’t occur as often as you may think. But, if you’re concerned about the costs, here’s what you can do:

First, ask us about our “credit system” where a building can purchase a bundle of hours upfront at a steep discount to apply to future events, such as emergencies. This helps to save our billing and collections overhead so we can pass these saving to you.

You can also save costs now by, one, using our remote problem-solving option as much as possible; and (2) helping us by being hands-on for emergencies at the building. Learn and implement our critical protocols for handling emergencies (we’ll help you with how-to videos customized for your building).

Operation (9)

      Generally, if we’re summoned into the unit on behalf of the Board or by you, then you can be assured that only your super or a trusted member of our team will be entering your home. No one without the proper approval from either you, our office or the Board will enter your apartment without us being present to make sure things go smoothly.

      As for your apartment keys, you should register a key profile with your super so that he has copies somewhere on the premises, as well as any special instructions for entering or exiting your apartment. Then, your super will simply access your keys when you summon us and return them when he is finished. Just make sure you update your key profile as soon as possible, or at least in advance before you schedule us to enter your unit without your presence.  

      Sometimes, there are no key banks on the premises for our supers to access. In this case, it is up to you to arrange to have someone provide us with access into your apartment at the right time.

      In general, no. We know how important your home and privacy is to you. However, during an active emergency, when the threat of serious damage and danger is impending, your Super may need to enter your unit right away without your knowledge or consent.

      If this ever happens, we will make every effort at the first opportunity we have to inform you of what happened and any updates to this emergency.

      We love pets! And we know how important they are in your lives. However (we hate this word, too!), we ask that you find alternate accommodations for your pet while the Super is inside your apartment. There are various reasons for this. For instance, the Super may think your pet is soooo cute that he loses sight of finishing his work on time. Or, he may have a strange allergic reaction to Fluffy rubbing up against his leg. Sometimes, a stranger’s presence may just stress your pet out and make him feel miserable. All are things we don’t want happen.

      So, if you have a pet, just let us know and we can help with some suggestions. Perhaps you can place him/her in another room, with closed door, while the Super works. Or, we can reschedule for another time when your pet is out of the apartment.

  • Competence, ability and experience
  • Self-initiative (necessary trait for part-timers)

  • Being organized and record-keeping (filing papers etc.)
  • Availability
  • Attitude and friendliness
  • Cost

We also vet them through feedback from our customers, our continued interaction with them, and review of their work quality.

Your building will be assigned a dedicated super or porter with a professional track record. He/ they will be your primary Porter or Super. However, when your primary Super or Porter is out sick, on vacation, or is otherwise unavailable, there may be other porters or supers who fill in for him and pick up his tasks.

While your residents may not be accustomed to seeing new faces in the building from time to time, we highly recommend implementing a team of porters or supers other than the primary Porter or Super for handling the building’s tasks throughout the year.

This reduces the learning curve that’s needed for a backup Super or Porter to become familiar with your building if your primary Super or Porter is out sick, etc.

Knowing your building’s layout and schedule ahead of time, and being able to jump right into the role of the primary Super or Porter, your building maintenance services will be kept going without disruption, no matter what happens.

If your building residents are sensitive to these personnel changes, we can send all residents a notice of the new team member(s) with photos and background profile in advance of the service.

  • Your Super is not at the building; or

  • if the emergency and its aftermath cannot be resolved within 15 minutes or less

*There is no charge for using our 24/7 emergency call center or connecting to our remote troubleshooters.

      Sure, you may request the same professional to service your building every time. However, we strongly recommend rotating at least two team members on the building’s duties in case the primary team member is out sick or goes on vacation. The other member can jump right in and ensure that service is consistent and uninterrupted. Moreover, having multiple rotating team members is included for free in the base service charge. Why resist?
