  1. Just moved. Gonna knock on some doors and try and get some work. In your experience, what are the best times of the week to do this?
    Thanks again.

    Never door knocked, but I'd say 10am - 5pm on a Saturday and 11am - 12 and 2pm - 5pm on a Sunday if it's still light.

    Saturdays are always good.....loadsa people are in......tend to be more chilled and relaxed as well. If you are just starting out though, I would canvass all day and every day (sensible hours, obviously). Not sure about sundays though.
     
  5. Cheers chaps. I'm working flat out on the building. Cleaning solar panels also. Time is limited for me but I like cleaning windows. I'll get out on Saturday morning and give it a bash. Can't be worse than busking!
