You're an idiot..
I did their entire house and didn't move a single thing..
Had one like that today myself
Ms Smith, I can't thank you enough for being ready. This gives me much more time to actually clean, you did a great job. If you are ever unable(or tooo dam old) to move all this stuff I'm more than happy to help.
After the works done.
Ms Smith, I'm going to take 20$ off your bill because you were prepared, you take yourself out to lunch.
I’ve been thinking of this thread all day. Both houses were ready for me because of my pre-appointment email. Best thing ever.
Do guy leave blocks & sticky tabs?
I'm all for prep email but it looks like you fookers are making it hard on your clients.
We move all the big shit (not out, just back & forth) that is movable and just ask them to move the small stuff.
I do. But I’m not opposed to not moving furniture. If the customer is older, like Mikey, I’ll offer to help move back the furniture and tab everything.
One of my customers I cleaned today has cancer and is going through Kemo. I knocked $50 off his bill and I’m going back tonight to move his couches back for him.
I love when they have everything moved out, but would never request or require it.
Hard to have clients repeat when the experience was a total PITA for them the first time.
I tell them to clean more often and to go around the bulk of it.
Had a job today where 100% of the furniture was shoved over into the left 25% of the living room we were cleaning. So helpful!
Also love when they pull stuff in to the center of the room before we get there!
Yeah, don't you just love that. Like when they pull the night stand out by 3 feet thinking that is helpful. UGH!
How do you go through Kemo?
I don’t know how to answer that, but I don’t wish it on anyone.
Both houses I cleaned today had everything moved.
I’m their favorite guest all year!
I do try to accommodate as best as I can. We tell them over the phone and in the prep email that we do not move bedroom furniture. We also tell them we are happy to move sofas/loveseats/chairs/coffee tables, but to please remove all smaller items, even end tables if possible.
But they get on a roll!
Probably half of my residential clients have all living furniture stashed in the kitchen.
And I can hear the Shark or central vac in the background upon arrival.
They’ve heard about The Kid and want me doing what I do best....sucking rug!
I do slide a mean ottoman around. I’ve even been known to flip one on top of a chair.
Or when they pull the sofa out, directly over the dirtiest part of the room...
Are you sending THE letter?
Yes, with a couple minor changes.
That letter is a finely crafted tool!
Just don't tell the customer to lock their valuables in the the trunk of their car.
Hey, you drive and text while eating a Wendy's Baconator and see how good you spell!
Would you mind sharing your prep info?
