    im not wfp but its probably taken longer as there all first cleans, next time the will be quicker and with practise and experience you will be whizzing round them in 10mins.
    well done on getting out there and getting your first customers done, im impressed

    Yes you will pick up speed next time will be easier, just remember as they've been done recently now once you've scrubbed the window once or twice quickly you just rinse it quickly.

    I only used 50 litres on a £53 job today, and it only took me 2.5hours.(there was minimal trad work on it)

    But yeah you sound about where I was in the beginning, you're doing well pal keep it up and you'll see the rewards.

    Main thing is the custy was happy. Speed will come. A custy likes you there longer as they think you are doing a good job & they get value for money. When starting the most important thing is the custys happy & then you keep them then your speed will come. Love the Zs but no smiley faces???
