Inventory is a bet. Many of you have heard me say it. Yet, I still see contractors wasting their hard-earned money on inventory "bets." One of the contractors I work with is in the process of cleaning out all of his trucks and replacing the "standard" inventory in them. Even after 20-plus years in this industry, it still amazes me how many thousands of dollars are wasted in broken and damaged parts as well as inventory that is bought but never used.
