I was getting ready to go and do some door to door sales right now, but just heard from the weather man (Starbrite Doug) that its gonna rain all week next week. Would you guys just not go out and try to fill the schedule today or go anyway and fill it for after the rains?
I am going anyway, and see what the responses are. Just curious what you guys would do, I will post up to tell ya what the responses were…
go make some money!
[B][/B]I try not to pay too much attention to the weather. If I stopped scheduling or working every time there was a chance of rain, I’d never get any houses done, especially in the Spring. We try to work through the rain, unless it is a downpour all day, or a safety risk to be on ladders. I also reassure every customer if they feel any windows got spotted because of the rain we will come back and touch them up for free. I’ve been called back maybe once in 10+ years.
I realize the peeps in Cali and other areas may be different. I’ve heard that some cancel if there is even a 5% chance of rain.
I do remember the days of old, when there was even a hint of rain, I would cancel the job to goof off. Those days are long gone, unfortunately.
I’m worried here in PA about getting some cancellations. Got 4 jobs scheduled today with a chance of rain. Like Seth, I’ll encourage my customer to keep the appt. and touch up any rain spots if any for free.
F**K the website Tory. My website is all re-done and my web presence will be better than it was before but in the end you NEED to get in front of people.
