If you are a trucker, shipper, distributor or individual that frequently deals with the transportation industry, then you may be familiar with the hassle involved when it comes to collecting on unpaid invoices from difficult clients or businesses that have closed their doors entirely. While the process is not always straightforward, it is important to note that there are a variety of specialists that can assist you without straining relationships with other business owners. Before working with a transportation collection agency to collect on unpaid dues, it is important to first do some initial research before moving forward with any trucking or transport related collections agency!
Research the Company
One of the first things to do is do your due diligence and gather relevant information about the company. Review their website and read about their specific services and methods. If you live in a state in which debt collection agencies need to be licensed, make sure that they are and double check their status with appropriate state agency. In addition, check to see if the company has been the subject of any legal action or has had complaints against it filed with the Federal Trade Commission. These topics will give you a great deal of information regarding effectiveness of the business as well as if their methods are ethical as well.
