    As many know I have had canvassers come and canvassers go and whilst she does not know it yet Jade is about to be next to go, the quality of work the past couple of weeks has been diabolical.

    Now as we all know I am probably the best window cleaner in the world ...... no, scratch that, Actually, not probably :p

    But on a serious note I am just as good as most on here at window cleaning but I am seriously good at canvassing on the doors.

    I keep going through canvassers to bring us in more work when I think I should be doing is hiring another window cleaner and canvassing myself to bring in the work to keep him flat out.

    I have proven time after time when working alongside other canvassers that I can double what they do in a day so why waste the resource of putting myself on the glass and pay others to canvass when surely it would be more productive to go on the doors myself and put someone else in my van?

    Thoughts, suggestions?

    I come to this conclusion after I put Jade on an are on Saturday, she called in the first 20 mins to ask about a job she was booking, the net job she booked was 3 doors down so obviously booked close together. 2 for a Saturday is a poor show, weather was nice as well

    I worked that street today decided to knock 10 doors, got 3 new customers.

    She says she did 5 hours, the GPS app in the phone I gave her shows that for 3 hours and 42 minutes of those 5 hours she was sitting in her front room.

    Assuming you are a bit anal about the quality of your work like we all seem to be would you be happy with a noob cleaning your customers while you canvass?
    Or do you know any good guys who have worked for you previously?
    Seems to be swings and roundabouts as a shite cleaner can cost you customers also

    I would hunt for an experienced cleaner but would also spend the first two weeks hand holding so he knows the crack Davey

    It's a shame but there are so mamy people who although you could pay them a very good wage would still see what they could get away with
    Too many dishonest windies about that i have learnt from experience

    Almost wish she had mate, will save an uncomfortable conversation tomorrow, was going to have it tonight but the the Koppaberg conundrum got factored in and the law says I can't go for at least 12 hours.

    Hate it when a Koppaberg Tsunami kicks in. :p

    In reality yes, in legality nope. It' comes in a 4% vol not so much lower than Bishys Fingers at 5.4% that you boys like. Remember fruity cider is dietary approved on the Green Pro Clean Plan! :))
