    Default commercial payment method

    I recently started my own power washing business. I've only had a few jobs but they were commercial and payed very well. My question is do I ask for a downpayment on big jobs? Ive done one for 10k and another for 15k and luckely they paid. But then I did a golf corse parking lot and these guys took forever to pay. It made me think about finding an answer to this problem before I do a big job and dont get paid for my services. So, how do you guys do it.

    Thanks

    I request a 25% payment prior to starting.

    No one ever has a problem with it, its common for most business to ask for payments before asking.

    Your never going to get a real customers that worth having pay you prior. If you have anyone on regular maint a credit card is about the fastest way.

    Most will take longer than 30 day net to set up, once your set up payments can get better
