This is what you do:

Say you have a go cart that your keeping in your possession untill your paid what your owed, and if your not then your keeping the go cart as payment

Obviously she's gonna say hell no, and threaten to go to court, but she wont, so you'll either get your money, or get a go cart. Because really, you have the reciepts proving that you did do the work, or at least paid for the parts, and tow and she really has nothing but what she says

And if it does go to court, just be cool about it, dress nice, be courtious, and she'll be a bitch, just making you look better

What does your written contract with the customer say? How about the written estimate that they signed prior to doing any work. Oh, that's right, you are Mr. Backyard Mechanic and don't need any of that stuff. You would think that eventually you would learn from your stupidity.

true, in a way...he has the right to collect whats owed...but his fines for working without state certification (unless he has that) and not under a licensed and insured facilty (I doubt he is licensed and insured as a repair facilty) will be much higher then what he is owed...still a loss, but now much more of a loss

I would completely disassemble every single piece of the go cart, and let her come pick it up.

honestly, any work you do that nets you a gain is suposed to be claimed as income, so even if you dont get busted for not being licensed/ insured, you could still get busted for tax evasion...been through that, and its not fun. That is exactly why I dont do work for cash on the side anymore.

Thats because your a conservative and you believe you don't have to give your money, labor, or product away.

Now hold your hand up palm away make a fist and say YEAH, Damn Straight.

I have to say I gave up fixing most things for the very reasons stated. the fact its family doesn't make it easier. I have been used for years by the family as "free" repair. I broke my family of it for the most part, now my daughter has been draging her new husbands shit over. it gets old very fast.

labor rates should read as follows...

Regular shop rate............$50 Per hour
If I have to chase parts...$75 Per Hour
You worked on it first.....$100 Per hour
If you want to Help........$200 Per Hour

i'm state certified in areas that i do work in. brakes, steering and suspension, engine repair, engine tune up and performance, and manual drivetrains. also i do claim the money i make on my taxes. i did that last year. i have no choice but to do work on the side as my full time job doesn't cover all my monthly expenses.
