    window cleaners go through the right path of self employment, pay insurance, get all the gear, and i have a local druggy knocking on my road, missed my house because of my signed car outside! quoting 3-7 quid a house and he has gained 3 in the past 15 min.......dont people care who they let in the back and i know for a fact 1 clean he works got broken into while they were on holiday...go figure.

    I hate this too, people dont care about their windies, I know from full fact they don't care how safe/unsafe etc you are!

    They care about having their windows cleaned but now care how and who by!

    Ive had to drop jobs because I cant get on the roof(above the living room) and ppl always say, well my last windy did it...well am not him, and its not safe!

    Lol some people..

    But its us thats get the jobs eventually!

    They will turn up for a few months and either stop because of winter or just stop cause cant be arsed.

    While were running buisiness, we have to carry on marching on!

    I like the Scottish idea of a licence of which the custie should ask to see this before you clean or quote. If on the bat king cole or benefits you cannot get one of these.
