We've had a few questions come in from the blog with regards to paying for materials upfront. I know we've had some conversations on this previously so please see a recent question below:
A joiner I engaged through Checkatrade has asked for money for materials up front, is this normal practice? Since I only have his telephone number I feel vulnerable in this situation. However I donít want to sour the relationship by challenging him if this is usual practice.
What are your thoughts on this? Is this related to the price increase of materials? Do you normally charge for materials before, and if so, how do you go about it?
Comment below any thoughts and feedback. Thanks! 😊
