Hello and thank you for using the Just Answer website. I look forward to assisting you. Just to clarify, are you asking if you can charge customers a deposit before you do any work for them?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes, just to cover parts cost.
Expert:  MDLaw replied 1 year ago.
Yes, you can charge a deposit to your customers. You simply need to be sure that you have it in writing what the deposit is for and to give that to them in advance, first thing.
