That would be my thoughts. Collect upfront for projects like this, atleast a majority of the amount due, enough to cover expenses at least. Set clear expectations for the customer, explain it, explain it again, then have them sign a form explaining the procedure you are going to perform and expectations clearly written out of what will be accomplished. Do that and I bet you will eliminate 98% of your problems related to this service.
