    If you're quality of service is decent and the people like you, why worry? I would post flyer through a door you were cleaning, gives customers choice plus I have hot system so perhaps they might prefer it to yours. I don't knock doors and haggle like most, it's not my style as I find if the customer is calling me then you are definitely not going about the business of windows very well, not you personally but any other person cleaning I would do the same.
    Life is life. Just remember that the romanians are coming and they going to work for a pound a house.

    It's all these redundancies. I know it's hard but I suppose the decent ones have to find work as they' probably have families. I don't worry about losing customers as mine are loyal but picking up new ones is getting harder. We have 2 new ones in my road and loads in the area that weren't thee a year ago, all with smart new vans and systems.
    We should set up regional divisions and if your not on the list.......

    Does using hot water appeal to people?
