    The outsides are absolutely minging! I will also have to clean all of the insides including sliding doors etc. I walked round and jotted the prices down on my pad. Just added it all up, but haven't told them how much yet.

    How much do you think it all added up to? Remember theses stores have lots of glass and high internal windows too.

    I kinda got peeded off with them because they started out diy and then started the trade point stuff and that annoyed me...they are either one or the other I cant be messed with so I dont bother with em any more may as well use local builders merchant

    yeh I can get my free bacon buttie at local builders merchant as well...

    I couldnt do it as there are too many short skirts that would distract me...all asking for a screw...:D

    I always check screwfix for things first as they are cheaper, rather than b&q now :thumbsup:

    Got folding trolley from b and q as £5 cheaper, same spec

    Both owned by same parent company I think.

    They are loaded so I hope it's at least £250 monthly for half a day, help keep Mrs tuffers in the 'manor' to which she has become accustomed I'm sure ;-)

    I have no Idea of the size of store you are talking about but commercial stuff like that I would not be cheap at all neither would they expect it to be.
