Welcome Stephen. You will get used to the ladders mate, you'll be running up em in no time! Have you mastered how to carry them yet ie holding them on about the 4th rung and balancing them on your shoulder?

Hi steve, good luck pal and here's to a successful, prosperous time ahead


Out of interest are you using spikes on your ladders? Much safer if you do

Maybe when you get more custys start saving for water fed pole system if ladders are scary, for now just take your time and be safe

I have seen a few old hands with very lightweight ladders they move all over the place when you climb them they look like b&q value ladders.

Your ladders are you life so get a good set of trade ladders mine weigh 13 kilo and have safety feet, I would suggest a ladder safety booklet if your not secure on them. Welcome to the forum mate and I hope your business goes from strength to strength.

Welcome steve. You definitely need a good set of trade ladders. I have a set of titan ladders with big wide safety feet. Try midland ladders.......the safety feet are free if you order a titan ladder. Makes you feel a lot safer.
