    New vans stupid imo, I use my pick up because that's what I already had and does the job fine, but if I were to go the van route I would get something relatively cheap and run it into the ground and do that again and again etc

    I turned up for my first day with a family friend in flip flops... Had no idea about window cleaning!

    To be fair as I was only doing downstairs, it didn't really matter, needless to say the next day I was in trainers !

    Someone's canvassing my favourite area at the moment. It's going to be interesting to see how many I lose to him.
