How does the business operate on a daily basis?
The owner opens the business daily and is responsible for any quotes that need to be made. Once the quote with any required add-ons has been accepted by the prospective client an order is placed and a deposit of 50 % must be paid before production of the trailer commences. A further 40 % must be paid when approximately three quarters of the work has been completed with the final 10% to be paid on delivery/collection.
