I live and work in stevenage

But i work in aston..watton..datchworth etc too

Been doing this for 26 years now but only had a round in stevenage since last june as i moved from london and sold up my round from down there and then worked subbing off companies for a few years

Even subbed a bit from gcs from shephall before he sold up..you must know them as most of stevenage have worked for that donut at some point

I only know mark from talking to him up wedgewood gate getting my water but seems a nice guy

Stevenage is saturated with window cleaners don't get wrong there's plenty of work out there and with Courtney moving his unit down here and providing water there is only going to be more ,there's some good lads about.

Gcs is that Geoff or gjan?he had loads of work and a lot of subbies about 10years ago before he sold up.

Yeah that's the fella

I find that there is plenty of work round here

The amount of houses in the town there is plenty for everyone

I know a lot of windies round here from the days of working for Geoff

Exactly there's loads out there and once your established you never lose any work no matter how many times your work gets canvassed.I pass work on to people like Mark and a few others as I don't do much domestic work in Stevenage.

I always find any work I've canvassed for in Norwich, are all taken. Just having a wander round the city centre and you see the same three or four guys cleaning the same shops. How do you guys avoid this without undercutting?

How often do shop fronts have them done? I live in a small town with a few flowers shops bargain booze and some other small fronts like charity shops. A lot of them are dirty...... not seen anyone doing them and would quite fancy whipping round them early on a Monday morning

I have a round of 25/30 weekly and fortnightly shops. I always whizz round em on a mon morn whatever the weather. Quick break then on with some houses. All in the same town. Do em on a mon after the local drunks have thrown their take always all over the windows on a sat night

They certainly pay if you get enough of them. I've got 27 shops on a high street that's no more than 200m long. They range from £4-£12 depending on size and whether or not I do the sign too. Some weekly, some fortnightly. I do then on a Sunday so there's less Muppets walking behind me then giving me the look when they get bashed by the pole!

 

Best paying hour and a half of my round.

Im with ya on that beccy. I love doing shops. Get a good few quid in then onto the houses to top up. Wish I had shops every day. My van is parked in one spot for hours

It is good if you can get something in the same road or if you buy at a good price. Large windows and doors in front of a shop are also good. Usually, these things get less.
