    Seems to be loads starting up, the use of ladders meant there was a limit to the amount of people taking this up who wouldn't go up a ladder but with wfp there is no safety issue. I have had to get out there and take on more work than I can manage because in time there won't be enough to go round.

    What area do u live in?

    Theres a fair few round here but ive never been worried about other window cleaners as there is so many houses out there without a window cleaner, im sure if i didnt actually have work to do i could go out and get 10 new customers everyday if not more. Problem is cleaning them :rolleyes:

    I wouldnt worry about the ones with the WFP trying to start a round. It takes a long time to build a proffitable round so they'll soon be out of business.:thumbsup:

    I see at least one new signwritten van a day and sometimes up to 3 'blank' vans a day doing wfp down here (Dorset), there are literally hundreds of windies already. Theres loads of houses obviously, but anyone who wants a windie has one already, I need to build my round up asap!! :eek:
