    I heard alot of sealers leave the bill on the door. Yikes, I don't want to go about it that way. What is the best way to get their $$$???
  2. Option 1) Credit Cards or checks by phone or internet
    Option 2) Have the customer leave the signed contract along with a check taped to the door, garage, in a place you arranged, etc.
    Option 3) Leave an invoice and self addressed stamped envelope in their mail box with payment terms and acceptable payment methods and have them mail you a check or money order.
    Option 4) Meet face to face and get a check or cash
    I never had a customer screw me... yet.

    The problem with some of the big commercial jobs and franchises is that you have to wait for the check to come from ________, wherever at their corporate office. Sucks waiting 30 days for thousands of bucks.

    umm, other than that, I'm not sure of any other options.
