    We always work proforma …. full payment with order, till we get payment no materials are put on order … especially if its for something that we have to order in specially. Ok, I admit occasionally we do let smaller jobs pay on collection but they are for very small amounts of money.

    We have never ever had anyone question us over it either. We feel our work around the town speaks for itself so they know the type of work and service they will receive. I’m afraid there are too many rogues out there today to take too many risks when it comes to business/money.

    When we first opened up the business we didnt originally ask for payment up front and when we first started asking we almost felt awkward over doing it, but after a couple of weeks it just became the norm and now we are so glad we work this way.
