Have you ever given full trust to a buyer and shipped a container full of product, and the buyer stops responding?
Let’s face it, collecting debts from clients in arrears can be a painful process and thus many shippers prefer not to dedicate resources to debt collection. However, failing to collect debts can harm the commercial relationship between shippers and the buyers as much as the debt collection process itself.
What is the Solution? It is simple, hire a debt collection lawyer. While this solution may be counterintuitive on the face it, it is actually one of the easiest ways to collect a debt.
So, why would you pay more money to collect the money your already owed?
Here are 6 reasons why you might consider hiring a debt collection lawyer:
Working with someone who is solely focused on collecting debt will help you improve your collection rates. Debt Collection lawyers have extensive training and can get the job done without upsetting the customers in the process.
Let’s be honest, every time you do not get paid, it hurts your pocketbook. The more debt that are successfully will see the company get more additional revenue.
Debt collection is an extremely labor-intensive process. Having someone working on the issue independently allows you to keep focusing on your business, while making money without dedicating resources to the process.
There are many regulations and rules that must be followed by anyone attempting to collect an outstanding debt. Finding a quality company means you don’t lose money by not following rules.
The longer the debt drags on the more the relationship will deteriorate between the shipper and their customers. By passing off the interaction with the customer, many shipping companies are finding that they are able to salvage a relationship that would otherwise be ruined.
