    I find if you do one down a street then go knock on the others and ask them it works really when when you've done a full gutter fascia and soffit clean I just say ive just done your neighbours (pointing towards the neighbours gutters) and would you like yours doing for X amount once they've seen how it can look they usually want theres doing

    What does annoy me is when I'm busy then some numpty come up to me to say "how much do you charge" normally when they see me put the guttervac pole into the guttering. The amount of times this has happened is now bodies business. You will get some just being nosy to see how much mrs smith is paying you. Others just want a chat as they are bonkers and some are actually interested in a quote.

    I get most of my gutter jobs from yell.com after they get redirected to my website. Door knocking can be good, especially after you've done one in a road that's full, you'll find others will be full to and some people don't think to look on the Internet for a company to sort them. I usually explain how important it is to have them cleaned and how expensive sorting out the damp issues can be if they're notemptied!!
