I have recently started up my own computer repair business. I need to get some advice on a written contract. My plan is to safeguard myself against not being paid for doing a job. Something where I can state what the work is I will do, the cost and we both can sign off on it. Any advice or templates out there for this. What computer repair business kits are good one's. Thanks.

I don't no what scale your business is cap2587, But as the old saying goes, It's not worth the paper it's written on.
Be prepared to be stung a few times.

cap2587.... As the weatherman said... be prepared to be stung a few times.... at least.

You will know which people/companies are going to bite you in the proverbial butt after working for them once. You get to be a good judge of character real quick when doing this kind of work.

The only other thing you can do "when" you get bitten is small claims court or the local magistrate. If you have "product" involved in the matter, you can file a mechanics lien but those are a little more expensive.

Good luck,
