    I don't work on my own street for the reason above. Turned down a couple of houses in the last week, some will say money is money well I say privacy is peace. Harder to sack houses off when they live on your street and it's just awkward isn't it.

    Why should you just bin them off without getting payment
    No other business would let it slide
    I would be hammering on the door every time i passed even for 6 quid
    They would pay up believe me

    Letter through the door stating that if the bill isn't settled by a certain date, you will be taking them to a small claims court

    For 6 quid I would just keep hassling them. Pretty embarrassing for them at the school gates in front of all the milfs.

    Small claims court, bloody hell where is this all going?

    What I do is clean them 2-3 times , if no payment then go to door one evening explain i don't like like it building up to much and they always pay. Saying that I do have 2 or 3 I need to speak to now on my round that owe for 2 cleans. I'm lucky all my customers are either working people with a budget for window cleaning or retired old folk who are sitting on mortgage free houses so have a spare few quid
