    I'm due to get word on a big contract for flats tomorrow.

    Definetley going to need a pole 50ft +!!

    I know the windy doing them just now and he's got a 57ft pole which was forsale but i missed by a few days :(

    So what sort of price am i looking at for say a 50+ ft pole second hand ? and is ebay going to be my best bet ??

    Cheers

    ebay is the best bet, but lots of them are taken off early due to people sending offers to the people, so if you get the contract send offers direct to the guys! we lost out on a few due to this happening!

    My advise would be get the lightest pole on the market at that height. Don't worry about costs as weight is a huge factor and how long you can keep holding a pole at that height !!!

    That's got to be bloody hard work washing windows at that height doug. Do you think it worth it in terms of investment as some charge as little as 50p a window on commercial work?
