Many, but not all, Vancouver painting contractor are not up to par when it comes to financial management of their business. A way to determine if your painter is financially sound is to see if your contractor accepts Credit Cards for Easy Payment?
It is not easy to get a merchant account, and by having one it generally means that your contractor has a decent financial history. This is especially true after 2008 and the financial restrictions that were put in place.
Due to fraud, and to protect themselves, banks and credit card processors are very diligent in checking on merchants such as contractors. If a bank has accepted a contractor as a vendor with a merchant account you can be assured that in all likelihood you are dealing with a company that is in better financial position and more responsible than most other contractors.
