    As I'm starting up in December once I leave the Army I'm trying to get ahead of the game with a kit list for WFP.

    But for a van mount, and the size of the tank from 350ltrs - 400ltrs I need a full list from frush to tank so I can price it up and know exactly what I need and to put it in my planning!

    A list of equipment would be great, I would like Gardnier poles as I have heard they are the best on the market!

    Kind regards

    There's no course about the window cleaning service. Only thing close is build your own company etc etc.

    They only find courses with your ELCAS that's only level 3. The course people provide are in house or The guys on here Level 1 & 2. So if anyone could keep on the subject of my main topic for for a kit list please.
