    Ladder exchange is a good idea that is as long as the price you pay for a new one you are not paying over the odds for the same ladder you can get elsewhere.

    oh i did have a crappy ladder norm i sold it for a tenner at a car boot:eek:....it was a bit worn and maybe a bit wobbly....i drove screws in to the stiles but once they go they go....

    i think all manufactures should offer a discount for an exchange item to remove them from circulation or to stop land fill..

    i have just put two vax in the bin.....when the first blew up they just replaced it and told me to keep the blown one for spares....but the second died just out of guarantee.... i made sure its replacement has a six year guarantee....what a waste though i am sure they could be fixed or the parts recycled...

    Well they are not going to take your knackered ladders in and give a small discount too without having the ladders up a full RRP are they now norm :D

    Its like the trade in scheme for cars we had a while back.
    Now every tom **** and hairy are trying to mimic the idea as a marketing ploy.
    But the government is not paying a subsidy to the companies offering the 'scheme' so where is the discount money coming from?
    Well it ain't. The price will include the discount obviously.
    In other words, there ain't no discount!
    There is just another sale for the company.
    :)
