You have a restoration company that helps homeowners from damages caused by water, fire and mold. You have worked hard to build your business. However several clients have not kept up with their obligation to pay for your services. This has increased the number of accounts receivable and putting stress on your cash flow. Then its a high time to hire a Collections Agency and turn those accounts from red to black.
Restoration companies can be privately owned and operated, or work as a franchise of a larger organization ( like ServPro ). They typically serve both Residential and Commercial clients. Restoration professionals have a lot in their hands. Apart from the complexity of running a small business, ever changing market conditions, pressure of complying with rules and regulations, hiring & retaining the top talent, getting new clients and preparing a full document for the damage to help file an accurate insurance claim. If the insurance deductible is higher many clients simply pay out of the pocket. Cost of the deductible can also be quite high in many cases.
Once a payment has been due for over 60-90 days, chances of getting paid drops significantly. Restoration Companies should definitely take full advantage of the two step recovery process offered by most collection companies (Attorney crafted “Collection Letters” and “Collection Calls” from an Expert Debt Collector).
Collection agencies have a vast experience in recovering money for their clients and tactics used by them can never be matched by your in-house staff trying to recover money under your own business name. If nothing works they can even take the debtor to the court.
Although collection agencies do not put “Mechanics Lien” on a property, it is highly recommended to try to recover your money today, rather than waiting years to seek unpaid compensation.
Our collection partners have extensive experience in recovering money for restoration companies.
