The funny thing is these same idiots are not coming back to do business with you again. They are going to another taxidermist and doing the same thing all over again. Once a jerk off usually a jerk off for life. Jay your a good guy and good guy for life . That's why your willing to give back his rack. I know you have pride in your business. Keep up the excellent work.

Jay, never met you but you seem like a nice guy and a good taxidermist, sounds like you just gotta figure out the payment part of this. (down payment) Can't let these bass turds screw you like that. It's on them, but now you have to protect yourself from these thieves.

 

I think something along the lines of what Bucksnbows said....down payment that covers at least the materials and preferably ALL your costs. I actually assumed that was kind of standard operating procedure but I don't know.

Yes but at the end to your consumers is about two things. Price and quality of work and many are willing to pay for quality.

 

Agree completely. Businesses are built on.

Confidence 

Reliability

Quality

Trust

Delivery

Word of Mouth

Appearance of place of Business  

The good guy way of business is a loser. Favoritism is a Loser.   

The biggest one ATTUDE 

Don't appear to be a Complainer Whiner.

With all of this Fair Pricing ( Competitive Pricing )  will build your business.

All In All, run it like a Business, not a Hobby.

He already said down payment does not work for him because of the timing and how it effects his taxes and therefore cash flow, or lack of it when he needs it.

 

However all taxidermists I know take sizable down payment

I get deposits for most of the guys.. usually ask for roughly 50%...

Sometimes u get 20%..

Sometimes $0, but they are supposed to send a check when they get home.. but many forget (I don't know how-i would never forget to pay money i owe)
By time I realize a year later I never received a check-ins too late-i already got all the materials and figure I might as well mount the thing at that point.

Most guys are good for item but every once in a while out comes the lowlifes.

I hope i don't come off as a whiny complainer- this thread was meant to see if someone needed a head for a rack- just got turned into a different direction and I decided to vent a little to my friends on here..
Not complaining-its part of business- gotta take the bad with the good.

Sounds like you need a better system, or a system to keep track of what people pay you. I know it ads work and for one guy it may not be an option. However; a simple database program could keep track of each costumer and the money they pay you. Before you start the work or before you ship it to tannery a quick look at each customer would tell you who didn't pay yet and if they didn't you don't even start.....but more work giving them a call.

I understood that when he wrote it. lol

 

What I meant is, he has to figure out a way to work around that.

 

Like maybe only take larger deposits from first time customers, or only take a large deposit on certain things that are more likely to get left behind without payment, like skulls, fish, pheasants, etc.

 

I should have clarified more in my first post.
