    I don't think its that easy for them to get into, it takes time to build up a customer base and the only way they'll do that quickly is by slashing prices to the point where even they can't make a profit. Was'nt there a picof a load of them on here with the bloke affectionately known as 'ginger bolIox' taking the lead?

    Why do you just assume all of us on here are not foreign as you put it. I think that is a rather racist question to ask :rolleyes:

    i wasnt being racist, what are u smurf,

    im sure up in places like bradford or luton there surely must be some organized firms . by the law of averages

    i remember tother year somebody mooted the idea that the polish or lithus would be fearsome if they took up on the squeegee like they did building . well theres plenty of em in my area but non taking it up . iv even infiltrated the lithu facebook groups in my area and raked in loadsa work too

    I was asked once by a polish firm to give them a quote for a large contract they had won. Turns out they don't do window cleaning above ground floor :D
