When I took out and installed docks for awhile I had a bunch of money I had to write off, I called and called them for awhile then used a google voice number to keep on it, never did get paid tho. Its a bunch of bullshit when someone wants a service provided and then doesnt pay. Same reason I wont ever start a plow biz, my uncle has problems getting paid from even the larger companys.

home owners are the worst, generally we don't have much issue with the businesses except some are slow payers but you get paid in the end.

Rich people don't stay rich by spending money. We used the agency I listed, AFTER anal raping them twice, some went to small claims (they can say who is right, but can't make them pay) These guys will get their pound of flesh.

If you would do better quality work they wouldn't withhold payment.

agreed. I once got a trust fund check from a homeowner in the fall(he was paying for spring way late) and it bounced. This person would call me every spring (and hadnt paid for removal yet from previous season) and bitch me out that the job wasnt done yet(he had a webcam on his lake front). I said once you pay me I will. The first few times I just said if you pay what you owe I will take it out, to help out. After a few seasons of this, I got sick of him always oweing me money so when my phone call came again, I said sure if you give me what you owe plus what im about to do and you would have thought i asked him for his first born. He did but only cause he was out of town and I dont think he wanted to come back upnorth to take care of it himself, but he heehawed around until it was damn near snowing. That fall he wrote me the bad trust fund check, still havnt collected money on that, but I sure as hell an't touching his dock again, wont even answer my calls or when I have others (my gf who follows up some calls for me or use to anyways). Its a tough game out there.

The companies by us, the one I used two years ago and the guy I used the last two years had me pay up front. I never even questioned why but I never thought people are shitty enough to not pay for services already performed.

i would venture that 50 percent of our customers pay there bill with in a week, 40 percent pay there bill in the 45-60 day range and then the other 10 percent is either non paying or over 2 months.

I have been doing this long enough i can usually tell you who isnt going to pay the minute i meet them face to face to go over the job. we weed them out quickly now.

im sure hosejockey will agree with me, but I personally couldnt believe it when I started working for homeowners doing docks and seasonal maintance, seemed like getting paid and in a timely fasion was rare IMO.

Ask the deadbeat's neighbors if you can put a sign in their yard that says "My neighbor doesn't pay his bills". Maybe offer them a portion of money collected.

You would have to be very specific about wording. '

My neighbor does not pay his LANDSCAPING BILL. If the wrong wording is on the sign, you could be caught for slander. The truth will set you free. Truth about the fact they don't pay your landscaping will never stand up in court. Put them all over town.
