Work Order Phrases
In designing an Estimate Form or a Work Order, here are some of the phrases that I have used on my forms.
Work Order Phrases

Installments: Payments to be made as follows: The first installment (about 1/2) covers materials and supplies and estimated shipping costs. Then, some months later, when we are getting ready to start the job, an addition installment of approx 1/2 of the balance (which is mostly labor) will be due. The final balance, including any adjustments, is due on or before completion, whether the job is picked up right away or not.
For large rebuilding jobs, such as this one, much of the original deposit goes towards paying the expenses of the job (i.e. materials, supplies, outside contract work, etc.), Due to the length of time a job like this takes it can leave us without the needed funds to carry us through to the end of the job. Consequently, after a substantial part of the work has been completed, if needed, a second payment may be requested to sustain us until we finish the job. In this case, pictures showing the progress will be supplied.
Closing Statements 50% DEPOSIT REQUIRED ON ALL ORDERS. Balance due on delivery. In case of cancellation, Customer forfeits deposit. Not responsible for loss or damage to items left for service in case of fire, theft or any other cause beyond our control. Items left over 30 days after completion or without authorization will be sold or otherwise disposed of. Final bill may be higher due to unforeseen damage/repairs/supplies that may be necessary. There will be a COM surcharge on all outside supplies and/or fabrics brought in to be used in this shop. by Cheryl
