Our collectors represent us on the frontline and with our clients, so we only hire the best of the best.  All collectors are required to have a minimum of 10 years of experience as debt collectors.  Our fees are very competitive and we can keep them competitive because of our success at collecting your money.  Claims are submitted quickly and easily on our secure website and once we have the information we need we begin the collection process within one business day.  We regularly report our progress to our clients, and you will always reach a live person when you call our office.

Collection Agency Tips for Austin Businesses

The best time to ask a customer for a personal guaranty is when they are first establishing credit with your company.  Add the personal guaranty to your credit application and many new customers will sign it without thinking twice.  Another option is to have a separate personal guaranty which can be given to new customers with the credit application, or it can be a requirement when an existing customer is requesting a higher credit limit.  Once a customer has become delinquent, there is a much less likelihood of getting a personal guaranty.  If your credit application comes back with the personal guaranty unsigned, don’t be afraid to ask the customer one more time.  When asking, tell the customer something like this: “You are asking us to support your company by extending credit, we are asking you to support us in return.  If you are not confident that you will be able to pay us what is due, that tells us that perhaps we shouldn’t extend you credit.”
