Nasty New Customer

Recommended Posts

brad proctor

Did house for second time today on new round and after being funny about new cleaner first time round. I was just coming down from doing top Window and he came out all aggressive saying he didn't want them cleaning saying i clean round windows and not square.It makes you doubt yourself so I asked next door if there's were ok which she said was fine and not to worry cos he's like that. Has anybody else had any problems when taking new round they don't seem to like change.

If people are unwilling to communicate in a decent manner put a big X through their name and put it down to experience.

 

I would have said I was unaware of any problem and that had I known it would have been resolved.

 

You can do no more than that, carry on being polite, keep smiling, forget the idiots that you will no doubt encounter more of.

Brad most of my customers have said that I'm doing a better job than the old cleaners, I think it must just be an old nutter , I was told on here last year customers need training & it's true , I have one old lady that moans moans moans ...but never about my cleaning ...but her moaning gave me an in one day ....I was dreading telling her the cleaning cost was increasing , she came out moaning about something totally unrelated to me & I said I've more bad news your windows are going up a pound next clean ...she said ok been a while since they have went up :Image1: you could have knocked me down with a feather lol

get rid of him and i guarentee when you do next doors next time he will be out. then say the reason you didnt do his windows was coz you do round windows as you used to work on a ship. right fire with fire, i learnt the hard way. its your business and you make the rules up not them. i gain some work actually from trad guys because the customers say they think there on a ship and miss the corners.

As long as he is satisfied with your work and pays you I can't see any reason to bomb him out myself. :Image3:

Always remember in these type of situations, that the problem is with them, so just walk away from it.

give it a few months mate and you will spot these type of people from the start, i was like you. but my customer ditched me for a cheaper quote with someone else. then a few months later came bk asking me to do his windows. i told him nicely where to go. my new rule is one strike your out!
