To be fair I also do this, I have a few customers who I see every 8 weeks who insist on paying me with cheques that might only be for £25 so what I do is I tell them that I’ll save all the cheques up over a year and cash them at Christmas :LOL:
They quickly change to cash or BACS
I travelled NZ in 2015 and it’s definitely not the modern, electronic society you describe. Auckland/Wellington/Christchurch are fairly modern but most small towns are lucky if they have one ATM and most business expected cash, felt like stepping back in time 20 years which I quite enjoyed!
85% of my customers pay me with cash, 10% BACS and 5% cheque.
I have to do a bank run each week to deposit cash and cheques which I don’t mind, but I actually spend more time chasing the 10% BACS people, ‘oh I forgot’ or ‘I’ll do it tonight’.
I like the feeling of knowing the hard work that’s...

If you know your machine inside out then you’ll have a good idea what it might need to keep it going? Or if you really have that gut feeling it’s going to die soon you could chop it in while it’s still worth something against something like this….
