Nice bit of kit but for gods sake turn the pole clamps round the other way, making me feel sick looking at it like that 😲

Soak a sponge in lemon juice (a few if its really bad) and leave them in there overnight. It will absorb the smell.

Before you settle on zero no claims, most companies (70% I was told) allow you to transfer your no claims across from the car. If you're not planning to drive a car as well for the next few years I wouldn't waste it mate.

Sounds about right, but did you make them aware of your intentions on having a tank fitted as some won't insure

Now who's not reading properly.... You appear to have missed the bit about 10 barrels and a backpack. I think you woke up too early today 😂😂

Ha ha, yes but in his other post he is talking about a tank, better to go with an insurer that is happy with a water tank been fitted in the future than go for a cheap online quote and then find in a few months or so you need to change insurer and potentially get charged for cancelling the policy, who's not paying attention now 😁

Didn't see that but to be fair it wouldn't be much to cancel a £200 policy 😂

I think you will find you can use no claims from a commercial vehicle on a car but not the other way round , that’s what I found years ago .

I've swapped between cars and vans loads over the years and always kept my full no claims.. never been an issue

I have always had business cover though even on cars so don't know if that makes a difference

I used a price comparison site, the third company on the list were happy to take my NCB across. It wasn't the cheapest as a result of course but much cheaper than zero no claims. Especially with 3 accidents and an SP30 (speeding) offence.

I just changed from traditional to wfp overnight and didn't tell my customers lost an handful out of 300 and never looked back, you'll be counting down the days until you get your tank fitted.

Good luck, but I don't think you'll need it.

What a blimding day.

 

Went out today for first time trad/wfp heres how it went. Today i had 11 jobs scheduled in for £199.00 Normally a 8am-5pm day as 3 houses are a nut ache.

 

Job 1 3bed semi cottage wfp top trad bottom - after wfping top trad seemed to take an age, but fk it i said id trad bottoms

 

Job 2 3bed semi cottage next door customer "you can do all mine wfp Jon, we had that in our last place" didnt need asking twice banged it out in 15mins normally a 45min job

 

Job 3 big gaff (pics attatched) with a small granny annexe, woman HATES wfp with a passion, she wasnt home, WPd the whole place it 30minutes normally a 90min job, shes phoned me to tell me how good the windows look and nearly puked when i told her theyd been wfp'd, but shes happy to continue

 

Job 4 holiday let, nobody home, bashed it all WFP in 12/15mins

 

Job 5 stood in dog sh1t twice and dragged hose through it 😡😡😡😡

 

Job 6 a first clean dipped brush in fairy/water mix to scrub windows then rinsed, then cleaned and rinsed again

 

Job 7, little old lady 90yo, couldnt clean and wont clean again, carer told me shes dying and will 99.9% not make XMAS, i actually shed a tear pulling off her drive she has nobody left and nothing to carry on for after her son died 3months ago.

 

Jobs 8,9,10,11 WFP 3 houses and a bungalow Also did an extra job and 2 quotes on way home as i had a ton of time

 

 

Today i started at 9 and was home at 2 shaving 4hrs off the trad cleaning time of my round today by doing WFP and nobody batted an eyelid.

Used 175 lt of pure as all jobs bar 1 ive been doing trad and im pretty anal when it comes to cleaning frames when up a ladder so none where bad.
