50% Deposit For All Commercial Carpet Cleaning Projects

Hi Guys

I was doing in average 10-50 commercial carpet cleaning projects. Some small some bigger. In average, i was getting paid within few days but 10-15% of the customers were just messing around. Cheque in the post, Mary is not in today, blah blah. Those 15% of my customers were wasting a lot of my time. After 5 calls they were the ones upset. So i decided to change my policy.

Pricing sent. Payment terms sent. 50% deposit on all commercial bookings. I have noticed that i have lost 20% of my commercial carpet cleaning jobs but, those 20% were nearly the amount of the people that were messing around. So when i did my matts, i was much better off.

Another trick. I was only issuing the invoice after the amount was fully paid. So if a commercial customer was charged 300 euro deposit, i would send them a confirmation but not an invoice. So they had to pay the balance to receive the invoice with the VAT no

Much more relaxed now
