    They are ALL coming this evening! I can't believe all them still have jobs in these troubled times. Probably the next 8 I call their heads will be mine forever. ::) ;)

    I've got 98,which is about 35-40 more than usual.I try to be good about waiting til the out of towners are in town to pick up.I had 7 pickups today,so maybe the holiday weekend will create some traffic.

    Good Deal!! Gotta Like That!!
  10. Wow thats amazing... I've had at least 6 of the 12 or so outstanding orders/clients say they were gonna show and STILL Haven't... A couple at least paid a little on them....
  11. I have the same! They say they are going to come and they haven't! If I have to wait 30 days I charge them $25 more. After that if they don't make arrangements it's mine!

    uh..Perry...do you think you could loan me a couple hundred...you know I'd be good for it...LOL!

    I've been pretty lucky with people picking up stuff this spring....they are usually ready for it faster than I get it to them.
  13. I've got a $5 per DAY Storage Fee on the Taxidermy, But a $100 payment will get you 30 Days Grace....Keeps the money flowing...Too hard to take possesion of stuff in WA...
  14. i did a little invoicing on what i have ready to go and ............ i didn't like what i saw when i added them all up. $9,800+ that is owed on these mounts that need to go home.
  15. I have all my people pay in full before I do their work. Great for cash flow and it sure separates the men from the boys on who get's their heads mounted.

    Bobbi Meyer I luv to ride my tricycle, I luv to ride my trike

    i'm still waiting on one to come get his deer head.
  17. I have about half that waiting to be picked up...... Its bad when you look at the pile and say..."well there's a New "_________" sitting on the counter" be it a Tranny, Quad, Pickup, Boat motor, Rifle or any other toy or much needed item or bill that needs paid..... Got one customer that I think has either died or joined the Witness protection program... Number is disconnected, no mail forwarding and no longer in the regional phone book... Bummer.
  18. I have a 400lb + bear sitting in my livingroom that was to be picked up before I went to the world show. The guy shows up thinking it's paid off "says his wife"!! NOT!!
    To his surprise he still owes $800!! Needless to say he left, the bear is still here, and amazingly his wife can't seem to find the cancelled check ??? ::) :mad:

    I've been pretty lucky, I've only had two in eight years that didn't pick up. Both were buddies. Most I call come the same day.
