You can get a solicitors letter done cheap.

 

I had one who owed 4 cleans; I left bank details and 2 SAE's. I caught up with her on a Sunday night. She was on the hop and paid up. Her windows have never been cleaned since. Horrible woman!

I guess you could go to small claims but for all the hustle it might just have to be a lesson learned spend the time getting new custys in the time you spend chasing them.

 

@Tuffers suggestion might also work. :rolleyes:

can usually sense a bad payer by clean number 2 . i used to give them the benefit of the doubt and carry on to the next clean ,hoping they would come good and because i needed the work . a mistake, hoping brass will turn into gold-it never does!

 

of course you are wanting every new customer to play ball and pay normally,but its just never going to happen . never go to clean 3 without being paid up to date or you are a real mug

Yes I learnt this lesson an never went over three months. On the third I would stop turning up and quite often they would call asking why I had not not been. I would explain that I had not received payment and that our policy was after missing two payments in a row we stop cleaning until payment is received. If never received there diched!

you can of course use them ...as i do...i have a dodgy one and was busy last time so just left it ...if i am not so busy or maybe its dodgy weather i will do it ....but i still cant understand people who apparently dont carry money...the common excuse she uses...

 

another owes me £30 and her last words were i will sort it....hmmm still waiting...but its three strikes and your out as above and as i have been too busy of late she is left waiting ....if she says anything to me...i know what i will say back....:D

Just goes to show that it's not just window cleaners that sometimes do runners :rolleyes:

I won't do any work for a customer myself unless I get paid any ouststanding money for the previous clean first.

I don't do collecting, so I'm always owed money , cash PayPal or bank transfer normally work ok for most it's just the odd few that do this

1 clean. If no pay you don't get another clean. Try going in tescos & see if they will let you leave with a trolley load of shopping after you've told them you have no money & can you pay next time.
