will compensate for
deficiencies resulting in a more professional mix.

|Q - Why is payment in
advance required rather than a deposit with balance due
|A - Our policy of payment

collection agency, it drives costs up. We are able
to hold costs down and pass
the savings on to our clients because of our
payment in advance policy.
