    I had a chap phone me to cancel as he found someone to clear his guttering cheaper.

    Guess from where he said?

    Someone is going to be busy and will be working for next too nothing by the time groupon take there 50-60% cut :D

    £25.95 to clear upto 15 mtr of guttering less groupon fees is utter bonkers if you ask me :confused:

    You need to think laterally Smurf… Go onto Groupon or whater coupon site he used, buy a bunch of these, then sub out your harder jobs to him using your coupons! You will need to be there to supervise of course.

    If ppl are happy clearing gutters then cleaning them also the fascias & soffits for a net profit of just £15 then more fool them I say. Groupon attract the wrong short of customers anyhow for any real profitable work in the future so I can't understand why window cleaners use groupon unless they are really desprate for work.

    What do you folks think or is it just me?:rolleyes:
