    I've been going to the same street for the last 2 day's doing full exterior house cleans and will be back again tomorrow.

    So being lazy thought it was a good idea to ask to store my kit in the next customer garage. Worked a treat yesterday and today as saved me time & effort humping all my kit in/out of the van each time.

    Also quoted next door today but earliest I can fit them is next thursday more the pity. Not unless I reschedule another job booked in on sunday and do that one instead.


    What do you think? :Image16:

    I don't know how you do it Smurf, I have a sign written van, uniform, good kit etc....
    I spent a lot of the on my jobs and take pride in a quality finish, however, I very rarely book people in that see me working.
    I am presentable and like a chat but people will say how much for this and that but they rarely commit, I get the dreaded I will give you a call...but they get beamed up to never never land.
    I don't think it's a pricing issue as I think I'm reasonable in line with others.
    Any tips? Or do I have to grow a fetching white beard like your good self?

    I think it helps being old and having a grey beard too as I seem to get on really well with any age group especially the older folk.

    When they can see me working hard and doing a good job with the type of kit I use then price is not really an issue for most.

    Not far wrong their :Image3:


    Put it this way I will work anytime when it suites me & customers. Also working weekends is one of the reason why I get plenty of walkup enquires too as more ppl see what I'm doing. :Image9:
