Help been asked to scrape moss off roof

I've been asked to srape this roof and having not done this before I'm after some advise please. Due to the extension at the back I don't think my pole will reach the top of the roof, so would I need scaffold? Also I take it the scraper blades fit onto the Gardiner poles? 

Any help would be much appreciated

I only offer pressure washing roofs but you could spray a biocide to kill the moss and scrape it off a couple of weeks later. 😉

Wouldn't it make more sense to say no and that you don't do roof cleaning? 

Unless you're looking into getting in to this line of work?

It is something I've been looking into for a while but this looks awkward. Worst case I'll pass on

forget about pole and the other stuff you mentioned above 

you need to work around each tile by hand including gaps between the tiles otherwise in 6 month the moss will be back 

I bought this ladder attachment from USA now available on amazon - very great to access the roof https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ladder-Max-ABM-2002-Stand-Off-Stabilizer/dp/B0007R6L8Q/ref=pd_sbs_60_2/260-8695615-5472933?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B0007R6L8Q&pd_rd_r=d6567b7d-7d1e-4b83-a49f-0b0b7303432c&pd_rd_w=Ry605&pd_rd_wg=l1yUA&pf_rd_p=2773aa8e-42c5-4dbe-bda8-5cdf226aa078&pf_rd_r=Y3HJYDHW0DJZ0KTHTZWF&psc=1&refRID=Y3HJYDHW0DJZ0KTHTZWF

also you would need  other safety bits and few basic hand tools for scraping off the moss 

or jet wash
