Posted by jonesy5 (jonesy5), 23 December 2003Always work through thick rain DONT STOP unless you soaked i have done this for two years and lost one customer, they need training up to know they getting your service come rain or shine
Posted by STEVE71163 (Steve Lowe), 23 December 2003Hi Jonesy5,
What do you say when a customer objects to you cleaning their windows when it is raining
Posted by Majestic (Majestic), 23 December 2003I dont clean in the rain because I dont like getting wet
Posted by jonesy5 (jonesy5), 23 December 2003hi steve
i tell them that i come on that day once a fortnight or monthly whatever it is, and i stick to it!
so they get used to the fact come rain or shine we will be there,like regular binmen.
as i say i have lost one customer sometimes people come out and say dont bother and i smile have a chat and say no probs see you next time, but it is a good system and i explain i got to work to pay the bills.
