    The job that nearly killed me

    2020 Citroen berlingo

    I have the new Berlingo. Cracking van in my opinion. I went for a LWB version though so I do have extra room in the load area. My 18 pole fits in with loads of room but my 35 only just fits so bigger poles will struggle in the SWB version. But the van itself it's lovely, feels much more like a van than the previous models.

    I think we need re-educating. Some people here are not understanding what people are saying. Then you're not putting your prices up enough

    No, but we don't lose many.

    Blocked hosepipe

    I wouldn't waste money on a water pump. Respectively I strongly suggest you get to grips with your system it's component parts and in depth fault finding. It sounds like your pump is sucking in air causing cavitation and hydrolocking. Post some images of your system so we can help you further

    Are you actually saying you haven't lost a customer since 1997?

    Best stuff for cleaning facias with a WFP?

    I've not tried the liquid only tubs. Let us know how you get on.

    Update 1st 6 weeks in.

    theyll be disappointed though as they wont make good money overnight...it takes many years of being an established window cleaner to get the good work in the first place......its also extremely tedious and boring at times esp during the winter months...most cant hack it and pack in within the first year or two.... i know loads of guys that have tried and failed to build a decent window cleaning round over the years......

    Marolex Pump Sprayer 5L for hypo. Help!

    Sorry, I have no idea. I tried looking but couldn't see a 5l one just a 1.5l one. I don't know much about hypo but I believe Viton seals are the best ones. Buna ones I have no idea, sorry.

    I'm a little afraid to ask to be honest, moving is a possibility as the house has been for sale for a long time. Happy to pass on that one as it is an awkward beggar and wind dependant, also it'll be one less ladder job.

    Best stuff for cleaning facias with a WFP?

    I'm still charging cheap for the fascia and soffits whilst I'm learning nearly confident enough to raise it up to the average price and currently saving for a vac but do you guys sign customer up for a annual FSG clean? or even at a discount.

  17. Hi guys I’m having a new van and would like to paint the floor before putting it on the road. it feels very odd to get a brand new van and sand the floor and paint it with a roll ive been looking at different products and quite like the look of the bully liner and was looking for some feedback has anyone on here used it if so was it easy to do and how’s it lasted ?

    11 years ago i was trad and earning around £18k a year on the ladders working longer hours than i do now!id been trad for 17 years and losing the will to carry on in this game as i was sick of climbing ladders and sick of collecting! i used to think earning £30 an hour was a pipe dream or BS!!joining a window cleaning forum and getting computer literate was the best move i ever made in window cleaning...ive learnt a lot in the last 11-12 years about everything to do with window cleaning,round management,equipment and pricing work...... most newbie window cleaners will get now

    Blocked hosepipe

    Are you sure that it is air that is trapped? I have had an issue before where the resin beads were getting into my reel hose and all gathered behind the fitting to the pole hose which blocked the hose. It could also be that your pump in the van has become damaged especially if it has been used whilst frozen on one of these cold mornings. That happened to me a couple of month back. That pump above appears to be one you put in your drill.

    When you say "lost" do you mean they have got another cleaner or they have moved or died. If it's one of the latter then it's easier to get a more realistic price with the new owner.
  21. Lost my very first customer today, they have been with me since 1997 so that is kind of sad. On the other hand it was a big under priced house and couldn't be done when windy so was becoming more challenging in the winter. I will view it as an opportunity to take on some easier, better value jobs and improve the productivity of the business.

    Yep agreed. You raise a good point with the cost of running van etc and insurance and also many when they quote there daily earnings I expect dont deduct tax and NI. Like you say if after all of that and all the times your not working and your still in a nice healthy profit that's the figure to talk about
