    Hey guys,hope your all well and have your advice hats on.

    The dilemma we have is how to tackle this job,and the best way to price it up. We use WFP which currently reach 30ft with extended pole. The job seems to be at least 60ft to 70ft. We're unsure as to how to go about it, in regards to getting more extension poles or cherry picker. Any other suggestions would be great. The main points are: how to charge and how to complete the job. Pictures have been added to help. Cheers all

    Buy the right length pole, it means youre able to take on more work of the same size, and will be paid for, rather than rented. Thats what my brain told me, in your shoes...

    Doesn't look to be 70ft in size .. If u haven used a pole that size before. It is not a walk in the park.

    Is there anyone here who is nearby and can jump on the wash, first time who can use/has a pole that size and the time to teach? If I drove and had a pole that size i'd help a local(ish) windy.

    Is that you holding a pole in the pic Expurgoclean? The building doesn't look to much higher than the pole you're holding, unless there are more than 3 floors? An SLX-35 would do that job if it's just 3 floors. My main worry would be how dirty are the windows due to the building work.
