  • when did you start window cleaning?
    2005
  1. Hello and thank you

    Haha no worries. If you are worried about me making a move on it don't be lol I don't do any shops I stick to houses as I much prefer them [emoji23] was just going to say if you see me about be sure to say hi lol all the best! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  2. Hello and thank you

    Which Market town fella? I'm based in Pickering which is about 20 miles east of York. As a one off inside and out I would be looking for at least £30 for Windows, Frames, Stickers etc. If she wanted a regular service a lot of shops like a weekly clean so for exterior windows only I would quote £10, if she wanted 2 weekly £12, 4 weekly £15, especially if it's on a busy road so will get dirty quickly. Best wishes in your new venture. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  3. I have the 3000 watt machine and can't fault it, I've picked up turf and everything and I am very happy with the equipment. From what I can gather I think they not only sell the equipment but go out and do the job aswell so I think that's why sometimes responses are a problem, which like you say isn't great, but honestly if you persevere the gear is worth it for the money. My old man ordered mine at same time as his and he rung them up and got a discount for ordering 2 and he said they were good to talk to on the phone. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Do you know why there is such a shortage of genuine tulsion Doug? And if there is likely to continue to be a shortage? Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

  9. Shocked by another cleaner

    I've heard of ones just turning up at random houses and doing the Windows hoping to just get the customer, I had one do it to one of my customers a few months ago while they were out, he billed them £15 but they never paid him, he turned up a 2nd time luckily while they were in, they told him to clear off. I've never heard of being asked for a quote though and doing them without agreeing a price with the customer. I defo wouldn't be paying the bill if I was customer!!

  10. Where to buy UPVC Max?

    This all kicked off on Facebook about a month and a half ago. The stuff from Bonnymans is Upvc Max by the sounds of it, ppl worked it out and it didn't go down well. Simon won't be at the show, but a company called Chemtex will and they are selling it, the same stuff. You can buy it off them or from Bonnymans. Or alternatively use Razr Wash from WIndow Cleaning Warehouse, I recommend it [emoji106] Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  11. Unreliable customers

    You do get there though apart from the odd one as mentioned. I been a Window Cleaner 9 years, but moved area and bought a round 2 years ago. The prices of the round were good, but there was a fair few Messers and slow payers, I weeded them out, grew the round, weeded out some more, grew some more etc. Now I've had one person in about 8 months say next time, and 80% of my customers are 4 weekly. Any new ones go on 8 weekly unless they specifically ask for 4 weekly, I find usually though 8 weekly are far less likely to skip, and if they are the ones who ask for 4 weekly then it's a sign they won't skip too, usually lol now all my payment slips say payment within 7 days, no collecting. I have about maybe 10 customers out of 300 who it still takes longer than 7 days, but only 2 that usually end up having to pay double. Like has been mentioned it can change, but hang in there, be strict but fair with them, and any one messes you about drop them and let them be someone else's problem!

  12. Funny colour resin!

    A couple of Websites and a Post I have seen on FB claim it is exactly the same as the sandy coloured resin we are used to just a different colour, they say there is a shortage of the usual stuff so they have had to source this from The States until the usual stuff comes back in, which should be back in stock in September sometime. Apparently anyway [emoji6] Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  13. Locking van while working?

    I know lol I was replying to slippy. In his picture it looks like he has a Peugeot expert. I was just pointing out I have a Peugeot Partner and I can lock the front doors by locking the whole van and then unlocking the back doors on there own. I didn't know if it was the same on the Expert. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  14. Locking van while working?

    I have a 62 plate Peugeot partner and I can have the front doors locked and back unlocked. You sure you can't on the expert? On my fob I have 2 buttons, one locks/unlocks the whole van, the other just does the back doors. If the back doors are open I can't lock the front doors on there own. So I lock the whole van when I get out, then just unlock the back Doors on there own and the front stays locked. Hope that makes sense [emoji23] might be diff on expert anyway!

    Van Ports so you can connect your reel externally and shut all the doors to lock the van. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
