The holiday season is nearly here.
Well, okay, call me old fashioned to find it off-putting when stores put up their Christmas decorations BEFORE Halloween. For me Thanksgiving kicks off the holiday season run that goes until the ball drops on New Year’s Eve.
So in this festive (and for many stressful) time of year it may seem strange to talk about taking your current or former customers, clients and patients to collections.
After all, isn’t the holiday season the perfect time of year to “turn the other cheek?”
Not so fast…
Three reasons to get collection quotes
When people don’t pay your invoice this isn’t the same thing as dealing with rude customers on the phone, or dealing with a problem neighbor. We’re talking about getting paid for your goods and services.
And in most, if not all, cases you have already provided the goods or services and can’t simply “take” it back.
You deserve to be paid for what you do, what you sell, and the services you provide.
Additionally, your business, your vend0rs and your staff all depend on your business success to put food on THEIR table, too. The holiday season is about treating the people in your life right, and that begins, like the old saying goes, at home. So collecting what’s rightfully yours is something you owe to the people who count on you to succeed.
Makes sense, right?
Essentially the three most important reasons for getting quotes for your business are:
- you should be paid in full for what you do
- your business success depends on getting paid for what you do
- outsourcing your collection headaches to a professional agency gives you the best chance to collect
At the end of the day, you and your staff have better ways to occupy valuable time than chasing after people who owe you money. Plus, these days you need to be compliant with state and federal collection laws, which is often reason enough to outsource your collection headaches.
Remember, finding the best agency for YOUR business is not simply a matter of getting the lowest price.
When it comes to choosing a collection agency ask about their expertise and experience when it comes to working with a business like yours. Some agencies do specialize in certain types of collections, like medical or dental collections (to name a few).
At the end of the day you owe it to yourself to collect some, or most, of what you’re owed.
After all, you’re worth it.

Either way it’s your money… you decide.
