    Heard a rumour that if wfp window cleaning it is possible to approach council to be able to stop on lines whilst working but you have to be working any one know if this is true thanks in advance for believe you can't if your trad as seen in local window cleaner got fined and as gone ballistic writing to papers was parked on car park at rear of property and should have used customers visitor pass don't know how he would do that as custy probably not in to be fair(meant to say parking permit via council for yellows)

    You could to take someone with you with a disable badge, my dad has a couple of jobs on doubles or hard to park areas and my mum sit in the van. Other option is to buy a backpack and pack the van up somewhere else and walk

    This is something i am debating now tbh!

    We all run of trolleys. Backpacks on a trolley (not paying £600 for a pure freedom one!) as i think running hoses over a pavement is just asking for it?

    I have got professional signs and cones, but if somebody trips over my hose i am liable.

    BUT with me getting on a bit, i am thinking of running off the van. We have all the parts!

    I am 100% Positive the council wont give permission to run a hose over a pavement??

    Can see how it may not be granted 6or 7 wfp vans all working different custys on one day one road would be a nightmare

    We used to get dispensations in london. So you could park on certain roads for a week at a time and get no trouble. They then changed it to daily! So every day you had to go get it.

    I still like the trolleys but i must admit i find my self wanting to use a different van so i can run from it.

    Think i might convert mine over weekend. I got the parts.

    stick with the trolley damo, cant go wrong. i know its a pain taking it out and filling it up but its only a few mins all up aint it. i love my trolley and when i get a van ill still use a trolley. i wont have a watertank in the back. ill have seperate water barrels loaded up. didnt know you could get in trouble tho for trailing a hose over the pavement :eek:

    The council wont give permission for it that why.

    HMMM still need a pump setup tho, all the pipes are installed. Including under van ports so might as well :D
