I feel you pain, have had the same thing happen to me. Done a job 1st August, checked bank this morning to find no payment. Was going to leave it until Friday and chase them up however cheque arrived in todays post. So that's an extra weeks credit for them on top of the 60 days they have all ready had.

You can send them confirmation that you will charge late payment for the inconvenience. As they not adhered to the terms... http://late-payment-law.co.uk/when.html

Sadly it is NOT going to change. It's been this way, as I know, for 30 years or more

Breach of contract. Mr Gas Motorcycle Couriers is correct. Make a note of these people and don't do any more work for them. I have a list of ten.

I don't accept "oversights" If you arranged to do a job early in the morning and forgot to set your alarm clock, then claimed it was an oversight I would think that the courier company would not be best pleased.

Perhaps that's a good way of getting back at them.

As you haven't named them, i can't see it being deleted.

I too think that we should have 3 strikes and you're out re payment. Or at the very least suspended until payment is forthcoming.

If a Courier doesn't collect when he should and does it more than once, are you going to use him again?

So why should a Courier be expected to wait over the agreed time for his pay?

If you pick it up in the morning and forget to deliver it till the next day can you claim it was an 'overnight'.

Why are they paying you by cheque and not straight into your bank account?

Because cheques take 5 or 6 days to clear in a business account.

Don't forget that usually the person ringing you isn't the one who's responsible for paying you, so often its them that get it in the neck, but rarey them that has anything to do with it. Just saying

1 job was allocated to me on mtvan, the other was by phone call as I have been doing for the past 18 months with this vendor.
