    Ecoplug Max... Fakes ??

    They are that colour because they are max I think. That said the ones which don’t say max have the same amount of glyphosate in them, both work well.

    Fxcked Up!

    Yesterday started horrible! Arrived at the job to remove 2 large conifers, small drop zone with sheds fences and a by line to contend with and instantly realised I had priced the job very wrong and only 1 was coming down on the 1st visit!! Gulp!! I had 2 options, 1 take a loss and crack on but the loss would have been substantial ( the odd time of its £100 quid out say I’ll crack on move on lesson learned) or 2 speak to the customer explain my self very apologetically and give them the option of us walking away whilst they go with quote number 2 or get more quotes. The customers knew I was genuine and could tell I was mortified a) because I’d Fxcked up but b) because I was potentially letting them down. We had a chat renegotiated on price compromised and cracked on. At the end of the day they where made up and understood the job needed 2 visits. We now have a good customer who has booked us in for 2 further jobs so the day ended well but started with a very humble beginning! my reason for posting is quite simple, we get quite a few threads on here of non payers and awkward customers etc but yesterday I experienced the good understanding type and relearned the lesson of being human and getting it wrong from time to time.
