Halocho #811 - When must you pay the garage and tailor?

We learned that there's a Mitzva to pay wages on time, and an Aveira to pay them late.

The same applies if one gave a garment to a tailor be mended, or a car to a mechanic be serviced, or any other item to any kind of worker to be fixed, and they returned the item - or you picked it up - during the day, they must be paid on that day.

If it was returned - or you picked it up - during the night, they must be paid that same night.

If they informed you that the item is ready, then you don't have to pay, as long as you have not picked it up - no matter how long it stays by them.
