You may have heard of cowboy builders (and taken a great deal of care to set yourself apart from them) but we’re sure you’ve also seen your share of cowboy clients in your time, too.
You know the type.
“I’ll pay you next week – no, next week – no, next week…”
Or the kinds who make diva-ish demands on a par with Van Halen asking all the brown M&Ms to be removed from their dressing room…
In reality, though, it’s no laughing matter. According to research by the Federation of Master Builders, three out of four small and medium sized construction firms have suffered at the hands of these good-for-nothin’ clients. In extreme cases, 8% of the firms asked had almost gone out of business due to invoices remaining unpaid and more.
So, what can you do?
The Federation of Master Builders will be at this year’s Jewson Live to tell you all about this and lots of other helpful info. Sign up here.
