3am Window Cleaning

So last night I was feeling quite restless. (I deal with insomnia quite a bit) I have a Job I do for an AT&T store where I just send the invoice to corporate. So I decided to go on an adventure. I drove the 30mins to do the job while finishing up doing a few estimates I promised to do for people’s bank. So I did this:

Surprisingly it was 45° out! It was lovely.
Also I got Another job while out! Haha 3 Tim horton’s restaurant. Because I decided to get coffee at the same time the franchise owner was there at 5am. ! W00t!

Anyway. Figured I would share.

Nice. Great video. I guess my only advice would be to wear one of those hi viz vests so people don’t think you’re casing the joint or trying to break in. :wink:

Ah good idea. Especially if it was one of my bank Jobs! :wink:

Nice job, man!! Made me smile.

The music seemed perfectly appropriate for the scene you presented.
Pleasant. Upbeat. “Whistle while you work-ish”

If you don’t mind me asking, how did you bag an ATT? The one I did had to go through their janitorial company and the others are FMC so now I just tend to skip them.

Yeah, it’s a lot better than the Jason’s gonna get you music.

lol. I’d actually like to see that edit.

  • that’s funny.

Wait. :eek:
Shh…

What’s that noise?!? :frowning:

Great video, the first window cleaners I worked for where from New York. They told me true window cleaners start at 2:00 A.M. !

Actually, word of mouth. Manager of the company heard about me. Called me. I did an estimate. Then she says oops I don’t have authority here is the info for corporate. Emailed the proposal to this guy. He said great! Please do it! So I send him an invoice.

Get this: EVERY WEEK. Once a month in and out for 55$ the other 3 weeks just exteriors for 25$

pretty pleased with this gig.

Had a nite gig 4 months back, nice to break day routine.

[QUOTE=Majestic66;326567]Who were those guys ? I love starting early on my route days , but not in the winter !

Ivan Steinberg and Herb Karlin , they left New York in the 80 ,s . Ivan tells me his claim to fame was they cleaned all the windows at a place called Kings Plaza I believe . I believe the Company was called G & S Window Cleaning as well . They are way old school. They sold that route for 25 X the monthly gross back then.

[quote="“sedemente,post:13,topic:32298”]

Wow !!! I know the guy who does kings plaza now. Those names are very familiar. A guy that works for me once in a while use to clean kings plaza . My friend wanted me to buy it years ago didn’t want nothing to do with driving out there .

Yup 25x. That’s what routes use to go for. I believe they sold it to a guy named Eddie Gilllman or Shelly hanes Then one of those guys sold it to the person I’m referring about.

You use to work for them ??? In Ny or another state

Small world !!!

Wow I just texted my old boss he knows Ivan an herb there in Vegas now .
Tell them your talkin with a guy that use to work for Troy !!

Funny now that I think about Kings plaza maybe I should of bought it.

Sorry to be nosey, but I LOVE THAT SHIT! :slight_smile:
(hearing about ‘that guy you used to work with back then’)

Your not being nosey!! It’s a small freaking world man … That guy that works for me once in a while was the guy “Tony”, who glued the change (lol) on the ground . He talks a lot about the kings plaza route , an how he use to love doing it !!

So when I heard kings plaza I was freaking !!!

Ok talked to Ivan tonight , sometimes he is confusing. This is what I got Herbs last name is Kahn and he moved to Texas a few years ago. Ivan and Herb started Clean Rite Window Cleaning in Las Vegas about 1980. I worked for them 1992-2008 .Herb retired about 5 years ago and Ivan kept the business till 2 years ago when I bought his route. Shelly Hanes is Ivans brother in law and he is in Florida now .I guess Eddie bought the route I NY and Shelly stayed and worked with Eddie for 96 months . Ivan said he got $30 on the dollar . Ivan also said there was a worker named Freddie . What s Troys last name ? Does he know Ivan? These guys go way back to hogs hair brushes . Old school for sure .

1980 woo ya he is an old Schooler .

My old boss’ name is Troy Maltoff. Prime window cleaning he sold 2 years ago he is now In Fla near Shelly Hanes

Troy is my age, all he ever didi was work work work 7 days a week night , an day . He was a window cleaning freeek ! But I have to say he made lots if money, an he worked real hard, for that he has it real easy now. He is still cleaning in Fla . I think he said he picked up 3000 a month In route work , an does condos . He has no stress no employees like me :). "He misses me though " He wants me to come down an partner with him .
