Most expensive accident?
Posted by Simon_King (Simon_King), 30 January 2004About 17years ago I managed to drop a 3 1/2 mtr ladder through a front door that happened to have a presservation order on it!! Total cost for the glass was
£706.05 including VAT. Customer was so glad to learn I was insured as his last window cleaner wasn't. I was glad too!Thats my best or should I say worst. Can anyone top that?
Posted by Terry_Burrows (Terry_Burrows), 30 January 2004 Brings back memories I had years ago to window cleaners with me,they only been with me couple of days we were working at the Rentokil top head office
in east grinstead,Mr Sir Clive Thompsons office
the window cleaner had stood up on the rad,it was febuary the heating just coming on, he took the rad off
the wall, dirty black goo every where all over the off white carpet at that moment in walks the man himself by this time the water was now 1 inch
deep in places I said good morning,he said o dear
well this went on for some time utill it got sorted
my Insurance had run out by just a couple of days
£1000 later out of my pocket it came I have to say I did not lose the contract,as MR Thompson and myself
had to wipe our mouths and get on with it
so sir Clive,you will remember me very well
who would have thought I went on to become the fastest window cleaner,now you know I run out the place as fast as I could thats why I am fast
