    I often wonder what percentage of houses/people never want a windowcleaner.

    There is a new estate close to me. Only 12 houses built. 7 occupied at the moment.....6 of them are already customers of mine. The occupants in the other house say they simply do not want a window cleaner. Fair enough, but still strange, considering all of these houses cost 550 grand. Surely if you pay that much for a house you would want clean windows. So, six out if seven want a window cleaner......I wonder if that is typical of all our lanes, streets and estates.

    yeh i dont want to go too far for work and have a job locally delivering a stupid magazine for little money and nobody wants it ...however i use it to spot dirty windows and of course pop my card through if i see them.....i see the same dirty windows every time...some people just dont care.

    ..and of course i will now have to hijack your thread and ask the immortal question....how often do windowcleaners clean their own windows.?..:eek:..ohhhhh

    i not answering....:hiding:

    As Im canvassing at the moment I can kind of tell who doesnt have a window cleaner and I get excited when I knock the door and they tell me to bugger off, next time Im out canvassing I will make a little list of who doesnt have a window cleaner and who does :) I recon about 1 out of 7 sounds about right.
