OK, how many of you guys make people pay up front? I have run a video production company for 4 years now and every person or company pays me ALL up front before I even break out the equipment, now having said that I am mowing some commercial lots, and from the way I understand it most of you bill after the job is done. Does anyone bill a week of month in advance to protect you from getting ripped off? And I don't want to hear you have a contract because I have been down that road and you do not all ways win (some lie in the Court room! Shocking I know). Just some thoughts please.
