    I decided to give the van a spring clean today. I have pretty much abandoned the handyman business this year, and been passing all my work on to another handyman that was just starting out. As such I decided it was time to make the van a bit more window cleaning orientated. I've kept just a few basic hand tools, but all the power tools have been kicked out now.

    All of this and more came out of my van:

    This is it empty, for SPCleaning :

    And the finished result:

    Pretty packed out but a lot tidier than it was, and Posh can vouch for that.:D

    There is much more room in there than I expected TolishAPurd

    I think we are going van hunting again on Tuesday and this model we are interested in. There are a number of ex British Gas ones available for £5695 +vat on 2011 reg. So we shall take a look.

    Sounds good. Mines a 2011, had it since new as was ex demo. For handyman work I never liked the doors that open both sides a s there was no room for racking and the like. But for yourself getting a van mount, it will give you options on which side you pull the hose out from.

    Yes mate, handyman/home maintenance, gardening, you name it. Always had work on, and I liked the variety. I got fed up of quoting in the evenings, driving to builders merchants, and working inside peoples homes. I only started the window cleaning as a little sideline and it just took off. Windows is reletively stress free for about the same money. Im a much happier person now ive left the handy work behind.

    At one point I was dragging all that stuff out to get a lawnmower hedge trimmer and hand tools in. Window days I was blowing grass cuttings off my boab before starting.:D Even with that I still have a great round, well priced, compact, and constant stream of steady work. This is why I have never liked the folk that come on and spend tonnes of money before getting custies- they are totally missing the big picture.
