    Has anyone tried using a collection co for customers that won't pay? What were your results?
    I threatened two this year but have not gone through with it yet.

    I have tried old in the past with no success. They are not aggressive enough.

    This year I am going to try a collections agency and see how that goes.

    I guess this question is for anybody...

    I am new to all this, but I have a question... How long did you cut after realizing they weren't paying. Oh and one more question for how much or little would you go after them for?

    After one month of no pay, no more service until caught up. Right now I am still waiting on two accts. recievables. One is for $60.00 and the other is $480.00.

    The $480.00 one is out of state. I did some work for a real estate agent, the owners live in Ohio. I'm going after both until I get my money.:weightlifter:
