  • when did you start window cleaning?
    2017
  1. Should I switch to WFP? HELP!

    In August last year my business partner convinced a sceptical me to convert to WFP, 100% of our work was obtained because we were trad “You’re not just going to spray the windows are you?” They asked, “no we’re going to do it the proper way!” We said and so on and so on etc etc. We converted 100% of our work and didn’t lose a single customer because we educated our custys and basically said give us 3 months and if you’re not happy, We’ll find you a traditional window cleaner. Needless to say they we’re more than impressed after 2 cleans. Do it! We haven’t looked back. Sent from my iPad using Window Cleaning Forums
  2. Current Acc or Business Acc

    Depending on how new your business is, Yorkshire Bank or Clydesdale Bank (same thing) are doing 25 months free banking for start ups. (Within 12 months old) Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  3. Warning - how not to end up like Big Sul

  4. Google maps

    It’s good to give a quick quote but it is important to give a min - max quote (and generally inflate these slightly) stating that this is based on what you can see on google maps. I find this good for Facebook referrals, if they get back to you happy days, if not generally not too concerned and put these down as tyre kickers/ time wasters.

    Hi Mr Green Pro. Ltd fine and sole trader fine even LLP good, just not a standard business partnership unfortunately. Spoke to them and they said its too higher risk for them which I didnt quite understand. They are looking into it as an option going forward though. Shame really. Thanks again for explaining it for us. Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    So I finally got my head round GC, signed up to CP with the intention of getting majority my customers onto it, only to find out at the verification stage that a business partnership cannot sign up! Miffed to be polite about it! Hey ho, continue checking bank statements and trudging the streets collecting cash. Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Go CardlessHi, just a quick question re this. Once you have paid your GC fees, do they hold this money in their account for you to access, similar to PayPal or do they transfer straight into your business bank account then incurring further fees? I am struggling to find this info and am keen to push GC as my business grows. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app Sent from my iPad using Window Cleaning Forums
  9. Hose management

    Thanks all who have made time to reply. I have tried various this week mainly the getting stuck under a tyre or round a bush and f*****g swearing a lot. Think for me for the estates ive done this week the - get to the front gate and count the pulls 10-15 to get round the full house has worked best. Going from traditional to wfp I feel as though I've gone from super fast wireless broadband to tethered dial up. But I'm sure I'll fathom things out. Thanks again for the help fellow window cleaners.

  10. Hello everyone, I have recently moved over to wfp from traditional and seem to be getting myself tangled up quite regularly with the hose. Quite simply any advice on managing my hose would be received with thanks? Am I best pulling off 100m and starting at the furthest point and working back towards my van. Or the opposite starting near to far? Kind regards Dave. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
