I get a lot of folks that call for service who are in the process of moving. They are going to move out of town, need someone to take care of the lawn until the house is sold. Work is work, that's fine with me. I've had a lot of them in the past few years as people relocate for work, etc. I've had real estate agents with the same thing call me for empty houses. Usually, there is no problem with getting paid, people cough up the dough right away. However, I've had a problem with a couple of people this year paying late. I got paid, but they waited their own sweet time to pay and didn't return calls, etc. Out of sight, out of mind kind of thing. I don't like that, and them moving out of city/state causes a problem with suing. If they were local, I could cut off service and take legal action if necessary. But out of state and out of sight poses a problem for collecting. So my thoughts are, in the future, to require a deposit for these accounts. That way I am assured that I get my money even if they do flake out. I wonder, though, that it might deter potential customers. Any thoughts? Usually, I have no problems getting paid, haven't had to pursue anyone for a couple years now. I'd like to keep it that way.
