    A big hello to everyone

    not too good at forums but willing to try it out have called in a few times to see what's on the site and very impressed with it all

    The story so far windy wise did a few years of storefront window cleaning many moons ago (the weather was better then I'm sure) and I was younger and slimmer all trad in those days now hoping to start up a mixed wfp and trad service but as people have mentioned the wfp side adds up and the van insurance is a killer has have been driving company cars for years so no no claims

    Still employed at the moment hate the job but unfortunately the money's ok looking to get started this year with the window cleaning so far the equipment is brodex (price led decision) the van is a connect and trad gear ettore

    Look forward to talking with you all and wishing everyone a prosperous new year

    Liam

    Hello mate and welcome.

    Rather than getting a van setup straight away, why not get a trolley??
