  1. Dangers of posting flyers.

    Roll up and shove through quicky. Learned that from my sister who had to deliver 100s of thousands of leaflets if not more for her business Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

  3. Pro gutter tools

    Started using them this year. There very good on the pole. Sometimes get problems when the roof tile comes closer to the gutter than it should but still good to use. Less ladder settings and I got the jobs done twice as quick, plus it meant I could get over conservatory's. Get them from b&q. Your have to order online for in-store delivery now. There about £7 each. Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  4. If I was near you I'd snap it up. 2k is very cheap. Not even 3 cleans. Good look with the sale Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

  7. What do you get tipped for xmas?

    Got about £40 so far. £500 wouldn't surprise me by Christmas. I'm always get with any amount though as they don't have to give us anything Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  8. Iv got the ettorre rubbers on order and those unger end clips you recommend. Looking forward to seeing how I get on with them. Thanks for all the tips you give us all. Hopefully the moerman liquid is available very soon to Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  9. Always got my winter tyres on every winter. Not worried about the van. It can handle worse than this. Not working tomorrow just thinking if the snows still around mid week. Never have used the ladder m8rix for this before. Just wondered if people thought it is dangerous. It says you can use it in snow and ice, but like you it don't sit well Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  10. I read you can use the ladder m8rix to set ladders up in snow and ice. Anyone tried this? Don't fancy killing myself 🤣 Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  11. I need this liquid. Just started on the moerman and I don't know if it's my teqnique but it really is leaving some lines on the turn. Hopefully this sorts it out as my team's having the same problems. Currently using the moerman rubbers but will try the ettor ones if there better. Thanks for the video trad man. Love your videos so does my partner, who iv got working with us now our kids are in school. Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  12. my business

    I'd just like to say you've really been an inspiration to me a pane in the glass. If I'm honest IV been going 20 years and only have about 700 to 800 a week of work myself. Iv not put in the effert I should have until this year. I'd say so far iv doubled my round this year alone. I thought that good till I saw your success. I am planning to canvass though the winter so let's see where I am by April, which will be 12 months since I started my canvassing campaign. I was wondering how I'd get on with winter canvassing but after seeing about your success it's made me determined to go hard all winter with my building of the round. Truthfully my biggest regret is not building harder over the last 20 years since I started. I wish I could of put my current head on the 15 year old who started this back in 97 This will be rectified over the next 5 years. I plan to have at least 5 people working for me full time by then. If I could give anyone any advice I have learned, it would be don't put anything of till tomorrow you can start today. Or you could end up years down the line wishing you'd pulled your finger out your ass sooner. Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  13. Winter Beckons.

    I remember that winter. Never had a 2nd job. Struggled nearly gave up. Iv since thought a ladder m8rix would of solved that problem Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  14. Flyers

    I know you posted this a month ago green pro clean ltd but iv noticed almost no response of leaflets which is why I make a note of those who don't have a window cleaner. How does your system work with your lead generater as I may well be interested. Does it provide work close together or quite far apart as I know I'm canvassing an area crying out for a window cleaner but I just don't have enough time to do enough canvassing Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  15. Flyers

    I use flyer's to take a look at the house. Don't think people would like me walking up to there house and walking away from it. so I drop a leaflet and make a a note of everyone who doesn't have a window cleaner. Then I call back to them at evenings and weekends. I find there's nothing more soul destroying than hearing thousands of people say they have one. This cuts that down a lot.
