Recommended Posts

don't often get ripped off by customers not pay,


ive had same customers many years and never needed to collect,


had same round and not been bothered about extra work


then about 6 months ago sold one of my rounds as it was 30 miles from my home,


now been looking for work in my own town of Middlesbrough, well what a pain in the **** getting good customers are,


im now having to collect my new work and I hate it, ive been ripped off 3 times this year buy people not paying, saying can you come back Friday,


you go back Friday and they say sorry can you come back Tuesday and so on and so on until u give up as its cost u more in time and fuel,


someone gunna get a punch one day as im getting sick of picking up **** new customers,

i know how you feel all my customers are brilliant payers just bought another £750 worth of work 3 month ago and its a right nightmare already dropped close to £100 of it due to **** payers and people not unlocking gates after txting them, but some of them are slowly coming round, i put what days i collect on the card i post threw when there not in and tell them to call or txt if they wont be in or have money, once you explain how frustrating it is to have to keep popping back and how much its costs in fuel they soon realise and start keeping you in the picture, the ones that dont get dropped they just arnt worth the hassle

I very rarely collect now. I get customer to post cheque, or because of hight cost of postage, I now try to get customers to transfer money via internet. Wont work on older people who cant change, but lots of people now have internet banking, and its generally more convenient to to them. Nooooooo more time wasted collecting.
