Pest Control is a very competitive industry. The market is huge, but so are the number of pest control companies. Overdue accounts receivable can erode profits for which you have worked so hard. The staff of a pest control company is not well trained to recover money from unpaid bills. Constant followups with defaulters can be a very frustrating activity.
Hiring a collection agency for your accounts receivable will enable you to focus on your business, recover more from past-due accounts and also protect your firm against lawsuits that you may run into.
The staff of collection agencies are well trained to follow the debt collection laws like the “Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA)”. They protect you and your staff from breaking laws while trying to recover your own money. Moreover, most Collection Agencies do a “Litigious Individual” check. That allows them to take a different approach when collecting from these high-risk defaulters who look for excuses to file a counter lawsuit.
While the exterminators concentrate on eliminating roaches and rodents, the collection agency will eradicate your headaches related to the past due accounts. Collection agencies follow a diplomatic approach for collections. Therefore it is your best chance to protect your brand image without annoying customers.
