    Just took this guy on for a couple of days a week as i'm abit behind I have a 800lt two man system.

    I've only been doing wfp for the last few months so I know I still need to pick up some speed and , on my own I've been hitting around the 140 ,150 mark a day and with him about 210 so after giving 60 i'm not that much better off.

    The work I've got is pretty well priced so my question is with two men on the pole does any one do over 300 a day ?

    Not being funny or anything. But two men and decent round should be pulling easily over £400

    A decent WFP guy should be doing £200 - £250 a day.

    A pair is usually a bit slower. £400 - £450 a day.

    Been out in a team of three before. God that was a nightmare. Spent more time untangling hoses and tripping over each other lol.

    Was fun to get a house done and paid for in less than 5 mins tho :D

    Did it take you a while to get up to speed? I find mind my self going back and checking the windows all the time ,where I've had a few windows with a bad finish on them it makes me loose confidence in doing them quick and going to the next house.after the second clean should you be washing as much?

    I'm the same Joe, I've been building my round since August and have experienced so many teething problems mate.
    I HATE hoses, they even manage to tangle my up when I stop for a sarnie in the van!
    I always look for mistakes and worry about a complaint.
    I take my time and my results are good, picking up plenty of customers too!
    We are still learning our trade and we will get better and quicker.....don't lose the value of money, £80, £100, £150 a day I think is great money and well done on starting your own business buddy.

    To get to the speed I am now. I would say a good two years.

    The first year you learn sooo much.

    But I can now bang out a first clean, quickly and more importantly spot free.

    keep going the way you are and your speed will come in time , theres no point in comprimising the quality of your work as you will loose customers and thats the last thing any of us want

    Im a decent WFP girl, and don't earn £250 a day, You earn what your happy with, Also don't rush houses, if a £10 house takes you 5 minutes, then look at the customers point of view, paying someone a tenner to spend 5 min on your house. Aint happening, they will soon be questioning you.
