You Got the Time


This is just a friendly reminder from previous blog posts but seems to come up over and over.

It’s simple: If you have a car accident, stay at the scene and call the police.

I’ve been seeing a lot of the opposite recently and just this week one of my customers “didn’t have the time to wait”. She let the guy convince her that the damage he did to her vehicle would only cost $400 and she accepted the payment…… $1600 later……

Not getting paid enough is only one of the many pitfalls, someone can take down your plate and then claim all sorts of things later on.

Please listen to this advice and DON’T MOVE.
