Why Collection Agencies Exist

Why do collection agencies exist you ask?  No matter how great the company, there are going to be bad debts.  A Collection Agency exists to assist the business owner in securing that unpaid debt.   No business is too small or too large to have delinquent accounts.   If the company continues to try and collect on their own, they risk several things.

  • Taking too long and having to write it off
  • Approaching it without knowing the laws and getting in trouble and spent a lot more than they collect
  • Not having the necessary tools to track the debtor down if he/she moves

3 Techniques for Critical thinking!You probably wonder how they charge

Many think it is too expensive for little results.   How they charge is a great question as some collection companies charge a large fee upfront and they don’t push to collect like those who you only pay if they collect for you.   The latter option leaves those business owners with a win-win.   

Allowing a collection agency to work on your behalf allows you to retain that customer and their referrals in the future.  It takes the emotion from the equation as this could be someone you have known for years or even a family member. You do want to do your due diligence and search for a reputable collection agency like MCA Collection Agency with their A+ BBB rating.  They can help you if your business is in MO or TX.

Myths About Collection Agencies

7 Myths About Collection Agencies listed below:

Most people think Collection Agencies are out to get you. That is Myth #1.  We really want to help our client collect and work with those who have ended up in a bad situation.

Myth #2:  The Company will lose too much money if they use a collection agency

Myth #3:  Some think Collection Agencies are connected to banks.  That is inaccurate. A Bank can have their own collection agency. Just because you are working with an agency does not mean they have to have a bank affiliation.

Myth #4:  Many think there is a large upfront fee when you may or may not collect an unpaid debt.   Using a reputable company like MCA, there are no upfront fees.  If they don’t do their job and collect, you will never pay anything.

Myth 5:  Collection Agencies are debt buyer.  There are companies that do buy debt for a percentage and then collect all they can.   That is NOT a Collection Agency.

Myth 6:  Collection Agencies treat your past clients rude and uncaring.  That may be true for some but you will never find that working with MCA Collection Agency.  We believe everyone involved should be treated with respect.  We have a job to do but we will be professional in all steps in the process.

Myth 7: It takes a long time to get paid after the Collection Agency collects.  We realize this debt is causing your cash flow to be affected and we want to get you paid as quickly as possible once collecting your unpaid debts from your debtors.

Highly recommend making sure whatever collection agency you work with, you check out their BBB rating.  We have an A+ because we take good care of our clients and hold them in the highest regard.   We would love the opportunity to have a conversation and see if a partnership with us might be one of the best investments you ever make as a business owner.

MCA is a third party debt collection agency that has been in constant business since 1950.  We are rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau and we pride ourselves in excellent customer service along with delivering great recovery rates.  There is no cost to you unless we collect!  Why not try and re coop some of your past due accounts with no out of pocket expense?
