Wanted to ask how other inspectors handle cancellations.
I had 6 last month.
As you know not only do you lose the scheduled inspection you also lose other clients wanting the same time.
People call anywhere from a day to a week in advance to set up.
Then the usually cancel the day of or the day before the inspection.
Do you charge a cancellation fee?
Most of these or due to utilities being off and not being turned on in time.
Also if the client that canceled wants to reschedule and the utilities are still off do you set up a new time or wait until confirmation that the utilities are on.
I am getting tired of the cancellations and the time I spend setting up the report in advance and wasting print materials.
Last week I had the agent call me saying he was taking me off his list.
I called him and asked why would he do this as I wasnt responsable for the delay or cancellation. I cant just book the client the next day as I often have others clients to do their inspections.
