  1. My starting up set up

    I brought a cargo bike trailer on eBay for £50 new including postage from Germany. Then installed two planks of wood using some bolts to sit the ladder in place. I then leash the ladder down to the bar that joins to the bike! So all in all about £53 Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  2. Traditional to Waterfed

    I’ve had a load of old people calling out to me how they admire me etc when I cycle past! Certainly puts a smile on your face! Will probably be different when I go to water Fed as they won’t see the ladder unless I’m off to a gutter job! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  3. Traditional to Waterfed

    Certainly wasn’t me! Started in January! Best thing I ever did! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  4. Traditional to Waterfed

    Naaah. Got the will? You’ll find the way! I get a 7m extendable ladder on a trailer on the back of a bicycle. People thought I was mad but it gets the job done because I really want it to work! If your round is condensed then dropping off water wouldn’t be an issue! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  5. Traditional to Waterfed

    Converting the ‘Windymobile’ to WFP next month!
  6. Looking to get water fed system

    Curiosity, how do you get about at the moment? I’m a non driving tradder right now about to move to WFP! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  7. Wanted - Second Hand WFP Kit Pieces

    Hi everyone! I was wondering if anyone had any spare WFP equipment laying around no longer used? I’m looking for a couple of specific bits before I buy new! RO/DI unit 100-150GPD Backpack/trolley 25-30ft pole (even if it’s aluminium for now) Really want to get on with using WFP from this month! If you have anything to offer I’m happy to pay and arrange collection! I’m trying to keep to a strict budget for the whole lot of about £250-300 which I think sould be possible!

  8. Help me gain some direction please chaps!

    I must admit. When I was researching becoming a windy I came across GC again and again and I thought ‘sod it, I’ll make all my customers sign up for it from the beginning’ I have all bar two signed up. One lives across the road from me. Large £35 quid house for an hours work. Worth the cash, lovely genuine lady. Second is a friend who again is older but I know her. Anyone else? No thanks, GC before I clean every time! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  9. What would everyone quote for this to get it.

    I’d ask 100 without the conny and probably get it in my area. With the conny probably £125 at least for the whole lot! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

  14. Help with leaflets design

    Fiver.com for a logo. £5 I paid for mine! Bargain! I get my leaflets printed from EBay. Cheapest I’ve found them so far and they’re great quality. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  15. Newbie - thinking of getting started

    As long as you’re prepared to do your research, find out what kit you need and able to afford the initial set up, flyers, insurance, kit then go for it, why work for someone else first? I didn’t and I haven’t looked back these past three months! I started researching properly in October/November, brought my kit just before Christmas and started advertising for quotes to start in the new year. I hold down a full time 48 hour per week nights job. I then work any time that I have off, but it’s paying off. I can’t afford to leave my job yet but with add on services and a new commercial contract I’ve managed to take almost £1,000 this month thanks to hard hard hard work. Sometimes 65 hours a week with my other job! Also I don’t drive but I have modified a bicycle cart to carry my 7m extendable ladder! Along with my trad kit. But I’m moving to WFP in the next 8 weeks. If you do a good job, people will pay. I’m in Wiltshire. I charge no less than £10 ever. Most of my work is £15+. I even have some £30-35 on 8 weekly. And managed to snag myself a commercial contract with a car show room. The work is out there if you look and you put yourself out there enough. Be motivated to drive your own destiny. I’ve had good days I’ve had great days also I’ve had days where I just want to break down and say f you to some customers... I’ve even dropped customers in my first couple of months because of their attitude towards me. I work for me now. You’re the boss, it’s your Terms or no terms, simple. Just do a good job and the work will begin to come in. Best of luck to you! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
