Deposit: We are a small shop and don’t give credit. We need to be paid when the job is finished, so that we can pay our bills, buy food and gas, etc. A 50% deposit is required at the time an order is written, which puts you on our work schedule. The deposit also helps to cover expenses and to purchase materials for the job.
Balance: The balance is due and payable upon the completion of the work, irregardless whether or not the furniture will be promptly picked up.
Often times commercial accounts have bookkeepers or accountants that make out the checks. To get a check might take a few days. In these cases, here are a couple things we have done in the past:
- We can give you a few days advance notice of when the job would be done so that the bookkeeper has time enough to make out the check and have it waiting for us when you pick up the furniture or when we deliver it.
- If it is not possible, or if it is inconvenient to have the check ready, then you can just have the bookkeeper send us a check when the job was finished and then the job can be picked up or delivered. So, we can notify you or them a few days before delivery so that they send the check to you, and you’d give it to us when we deliver the job. OR they can just mail the check to us so we’d have it when we were ready to deliver the job. If you desire we can email pictures of the finished chairs before your bookkeeper sends us the check.
