Your debtor is up on the Sunshine Coast and you are down on the Gold Coast. You might be an international debt collection agency and have no idea if Bindebango is near Byron Bay. Or can you simply pop over to Toowoomba for an afternoon chat with a debtor if you are based in Southport?
If you are local to Brisbane and you debtor is in Brisbane, it is not going to matter very much. However, our advice is always to use a debt recovery agency nearest to the debtor. This makes it far easier for the agents to visit the debtor in person. You can always use zoom etc., to engage with you chosen recovery agent.
It is more important for the debt recovery agent to chat face to face with your debtor, than you to be in front of the collection agent.
