    Nice one daveyboy. I've had loads of custies approaching me recently as another windy has stopped working because of depression. I know the fella, so phoned him and he tells me he's not coming back. This puts me in an awkward position as myself, and Danny who works for me are overloaded. Don't really want to employ anyone else, as I'm settled nicely now. Mmmmm

    Usually this time of year it tends to slow a bit but i have been inundated with new work and enquiries. .especially full conny and fascia cleans which then lead to regular windows
    Maybe it's people getting ready for xmas parties and family etc
    I dunjo whatbit is but I'm not complaining. .just be nice to have some time to myself

    Well done mate that's a result. I really should tap into that as it would be good to have a live stream on my site, apparently its good for SEO.

    I'm in a similar boat, shouldn't really take on any more but every time I do the round at least two new customers ask me to add them to the round and now it's too big for a part time number....I believe at least one window cleaner has jacked in the village....I need to make a decision, go full time cleaning (hourly rate is better than my full time number) or sell the village round and build another round in the town I live in.

    Depends what its worth to you mate. Sounds like a one off job, I reckon you could easily get it for £120 but £150 would be nice. Then, when you get off early you can put your feet up for the day.
