New window cleaner basing business off bashing wfp

You big show off :D

 

Once you have a go with wfp you will soon realise it's not as easy as it looks as requires a whole new skill set to do it properly.

 

Same as trad really as if you don't have the skill the job will turn out shite.

ahhh did i miss all the fun....i :h: em both....and at times i :swear: at both too...

as for the full out attack by the bloke on wfp.....do a full out attack on trad.....me....as i say...i love em both...and use em both...every day....

which is better...what a load of :turd:...we should all leave a window clean...a clean window is clean...however it was cleaned...and at the end of the day...thats where our wages come from....

RSI occurs in all trades including trad and wfp window cleaning. The most common long term effects of trad window cleaners is knackered knee joints, back, shoulder, wrist and hand issues all down to repetitive strain on the body.

Diwrnach your taking this too much to heart! If it helps then I'm willing to give you the number of the Knee Breakers Club ? Just ask for Tony Knuckles' and tell him i said this one is on the house.

All they do is call with the problem person , have a chat and a cup of tea, then break his knee caps. Its all very professional and you get a receipt for all work carried out.

And they are fully insured these days as well, just for piece of mind.

Wow, pleased i have had a busy day using the crappy wfp :laugh: ! I must sell it all and get on to using vinegar and newspaper to clean :thumbsup:

Each to their own method of working that suits them to earn the money as thats what we all go out for each day :thumbsup:

And a big respect to the decent trad guys as i am slow and useless at it thats why i use this modern wfp witchcraft :rolleyes:

yeh banana rules....as i wait for the lady to go out so i could wfp.....but....she didnt go out.....i was watching ...she has to go and get the kids....i got banana ready .....nope...her car didnt move....i think she has gone on an early half term holiday...grrrr you just cant get people to do what you want..

 

and another ...well she was out ...so out comes banana ....you see i think thats the problem...custys think...he used to spend so long cleaning trad....and now hes gone so fast.....ooops

 

so i looked next door and got banana ready.....she was out but was he.....and then....i saw the shadow behind the net curtains...booo banana had to go back to the car....oh i just cant be doing with explaining this new fangled way to peoples....

 

but....walk a bit and ...the fronts are all leaded and no cars on the drive....well i noticed the lad knocking about yesterday but what the hell its just the front....as i was cleaning the door slowly opened......oh hello i explained it all to her.....she said oh i heard some noise...hmmm..so i didnt knock on the door but...no cars on the drive means the owners are out....but not necessary...i may have interrupted some teenage tuffering....so why didnt he come to the door....no im not having a go at gingers...but..well maybe he was in the toilet....

 

and so banana goes back in the car....and i have to carry on the old fashioned way....but....i have to say.....wfp...its ....er...not as easy as it looks...but...its fast..safeish....well ask the wife how safe it is....and that builder who was nicely putting up the breeze block wall on monday...now that was a close one....i really need to look at both ends of the pole...

 

oh go on..lets make tuffers laugh before he goes to bed.....i was on one today....and er ..well ...the kitchen on the side gets very dirty sills...and this was a while back....so...well i dont want to get my sill cloth dirty....well too dirty...so i looked around and there was this paint roller lying in a tray on an exercise bench and i thought as cheapncheerful does....if i wipe the cra p onto the floor the sill wont be as dirty so thats what i did....

 

yeh to get paint of brickwork is very hard....it wasnt me of course i am :iaminnocent:....i reckon the guy swung it as he put it in the tray...20141022_135134.jpg.107bfe2897637b93188d21dc7400ce97.jpg

 

you cant notice them can you....i mean it blends in well....but most of all it wasnt me...im innocent ...i just clean the windows..

Friend of mine works on a PC all day, his wrist is completely shagged and he has problems with his fingers as well.

Exactaly, i am not sure how you would tackle this though. When i was cleaning i often had a good old chat to both wfp and traditional cleaners. One day it even happened that in a row there was me a trad next door and another wfp next door to him. We all got along, like you say though using that has his marketing campaign is not helpful at all. I really dont know how you can tackle it really.

there is only 1 way to tackel this guy ;):cool: :D u put him out of action an do it good o did i say that out loud:rofl:

I read most of it and was going to respond with this but never had the chance as the advert was taken down.

 

"Matthew Softley you certainly know how to wind fellow professional window cleaners up and mislead people with the total tosh on your website and comments here too"

he probley got a lot of stick as there is lots of fb groups if he posted it on any of the main ones like (wc uk) (waggers world)(wc world wide) ect he would have bin torn apart an spat out posting that:D

Trad ladder work is **** compared to wfp work. The only thing you get is a very tight bum hole when the ladder starts to slip or if you are very unlucky follow through. Then follows the aerobics in slow motion trying to land on your feet at the bottom. I should know I've been there :D

In Stitches!!!

Horses for courses mate

I prefer trad and it works for me but am also sorting a home made trolley when i get back to make the dangerous jobs easier

If you are happy and competent in your method then crack on and get the pennies in

I'm only a lowly tradder but it has paid for me to be talking to you guys from turkey

All being said when you try the dark side the next thing you will be wanting is a van mount and do all suitable houses with a wfp instead of just the hard to reach stuff....trust me I know :D

Most that invest in wfp be it a backpack or trolley end up with a van mount because of the huge increase in earnings potential this method brings.

Imagine doing a conny roof trad? :confused: A conny roof done WFP can earn you good money in little time, as it's the tools that are making the job so easy :)
