Price List Update Commentary

I don’t know about you, but the Actionable Insights crew took some time off over the holidays to recharge. Not the case with the Xactware Pricing Department, these guys were busy. They made an exceptional number of updates to the Jan 2018 price list, and many of these changes we are pumped about.

  • [EXC ECSB] Sand bags!!! Finally, we have a line item for sand bags. Actionable Insights pinged the Pricing Department about this potential oversight back in Q2 2017. Hard to know what was the catalyst for the update, but regardless, it is a welcome addition.
    • We will be requesting that this sand bag line item be added to the TMP and CLN categories.
      • TMP Category in effort to accommodate temporary roof tarping activities.
      • The CLN category in effort to accommodate pressure washing activities.
        • This notion will also extend to the new [EXC ECW] Wattle line item.
      • This will result in updates to following Insight Sheets:
      • Temporary Roofing Tarping https://www.getinsights.org/insight-sheets/temporary-roof-tarping/
  • WE WERE WRONG! Back in Q3 Actionable Insights Carrier Guidelines event in San Diego we discussed when we it is appropriate to invoice for WTR line items vs HMR line items – in short, we were doing our best to interpret the intention of the Pricing Department. Collectively we generally decided on the following:
    • Asbestos Abatement = HMR
    • Lead Abatement = HMR
    • Bio Hazard = HMR
    • Mold = WTR
      • Interestingly enough, the descriptions associated with the HMR line items were updated in January such that they now explicitly highlight the fact that these HMR line items are traditionally associated with mold abatement.
        • [HMR LABH] Hazardous Waste/Mold Cleaning Technician – per hour
        • Additional Item Info: “Includes: Hourly labor rate for a hazardous waste/mold cleaning technician. Note: The hazardous materials remediation technician typically uses various cleaning and restoration/remediation techniques and methods for testing, handling, processing, packaging, and removal and/or remediation relating to hazardous materials. This may include asbestos, lead, mold, etc.  They may also be involved in general labor activities, equipment setup and decontamination, site preparation, and other activities when associated with these types of hazardous materials.”
      • [DMO DTRLR] Tandem axle dump trailer – per load – including dump fees is a solid addition to the price list, especially for those of you with a tandem axle dump trailer.
