  1. I watched it. Thought it was pretty decent in the beginning then a I got fed up of the over the top drama, things going completely wrong then suddenly working out. The editing is completely all over the the place and the dramatised music felt like I was watching Kitchen Nightmares USA. At the end of the day It's reality TV, so it just entertainment. I think the majority of the show is scripted for the suspense.
  2. He's talking shit dude. Find someone else. He simply can't be arsed and you and your customers are the ones being let down.

    I've actually landed jobs and been the more expensive quote, I know because some of my customers have said. They pointed out I was polite, read good reviews, made more of an effort having a conversation and giving out some handy tips about other plants in the garden. Simple stuff like this goes a long way. And yes, I do write my quote on one of my cards. I don't think that is unprofessional because they can always ask if they want a written quote. I think it only looks unprofessional when you turn up in a clapped out vehicle, scruffy clothes, rude and then hand them a quote on a crappy looking business card. All those things together are big red flags.
  4. Same mate. New customers calling has dropped significantly. I've got plenty of regulars and don't have a team of lads to support so not to concerned. Last year went crazy for most of the year but as others have said I also don't think people are worrying to much about their gardens, now that pubs and restaurants are opening up and people looking to spend on their holidays abroad.

    Ground staff

    Is there a shortage of ground staff?
  7. Hi, I need to find a groundy/climber in Derby. All my work is domestic, pretty nice jobs most of the time and decent pay. If you live in the area, then please send me a message. You do need the relevant NPTC qualifications CS30,31 (optional CS38, 39). Having your own PPE is essential. Look forward to hearing from you. Cheers, Dan.
  8. Old Hilux. MK4 or Mk5, but in good condition they are few and far between. Minimal electrics, solid trucks though and parts widely available.
  9. Just remember a baseball bat at the bottom of the stairs as one of those layers. You want them to remember that night they had their arms broken.
  10. Seeing them in an episode of Can't Pay, We'll take it away says it all really. They are thieves and it's simple as that really.
  11. A piece of Oak I discovered during a walk. I finally got round to fixing it to a raw steel base. Now it creates a completely unique focal point in the home.
