This is my first year in the business, so obviously I've made a few mistakes, but this one could be bad. All of my clients are very good about paying and are just overall great customers, except one. And I guess I got a little too trusting because of the rest, because even though she got 10 weeks behind on her bill, I continued to mow her lawn, and now she owes me 250.00 and appears to have no intention of paying it, despite my constantly sending letters and making phone calls. Heres where it gets tricky. I have no service agreement from her because she was supposed to return that with her second payment, and since she never made that payment, she never returned it. I also have no reciept for the mowings because I use a two part carbon copy that the customer is supposed to sign and return the back portion with their payment. So basically I have no contract and no solid proof other than my word against hers that I did those mowings. What do you guys think, could I still get the money from her if I take her to small claims, or should I just chalk it up as a learning experience and cut my losses?
