MY VAN, MY OFFICE :)

M&J WINDOW CLEANING

I'm totally new to this business but I'm hard working with my head screwed on, sold I've sold my car and bought for the first time in my life...a van, A Peugeot Partner....and I LOVE IT..!!!

 Its not bedded in yet with my industry stained mats, simply cleaned and valeted and awaiting the bumps and grinds of daily life....

 

My debate is 'WHAT'S THE BEST THINGS TO KEEP IN YOUR VAN...' as a window cleaner..? My Office, my van...

My van is spotless. You don't need the ceremonial paperwork all over the dash etc, you just need your kit. Remember your a window CLEANER. My theory is, no one will trust me to clean their windows if I don't even keep a clean van. I'm sure there are some scruffy gits about that would disagree though 😂

It very quickly goes from new and exciting to same old same old. If its any help, in the cab of my van I have;

 

A pen

Leaflets

Business cards

My Sum Up Card reader

Microfibre cloths

Scrim

my ipad

Whatever bottle of fizzy drink i'm drinking today

An empty Lucozade bottle (Once you finish the bottle of fizzy drink it will become apparent what this is for)

 

Oh and fit a dash cam. Every one thinks they can just pull out in front of you because you're in a van and therefore must be slower than them 🙄

Oh yeah, I got that apple play thing on my new van so I plug straight in to the USB but that is a good shout. I forgot my TDS meter and test cup too!

I've found if you search the address on Royal mail they are pretty spot on. With an iPhone you can click the map and it takes you to the navigation app. Royal mail have it pretty spot on, I think its done with their machines. But yeah, Google or TomTom alone ain't trustworthy

Lots of pens, whenever you need one you'll never find it, so by having loads of pens increases the odds of finding one!
