By far the best method of payment is by Standing Order, this prevents accounts becoming inadvertently overdue and saves having to chase customers for late payment. Please rest assured that if at the end of hire if any money is owed back to the customer or an STO is not cancelled in time, your money will be quickly refunded. Internet payments are also convenient, leaving a clear audit trail.
