    Don’t take it if you cannot buff twice a week. They will very naturally want fewer visits, during which the VCT will become so filthy and worn, it will be a nightmare.

    That fantastic sum should get you the top of the reliable gene pool. I've got nothing against making money, but you get what you pay for.

    I walked in to one of their jobs one morning to have breakfast ( they have good breakfast) and went into the bathroom to wash my hands. The guy had just mopped the floor and had actually mopped around a couple of paper towels laying on the floor. I should have snapped a pic but it was before smart phones.

    Russ......we are presently servicing 12 supermarkets, all over 45,000 up to 60,000 sq feet. We are there 7 days a week, scrub & propane buff every day. We've had this account over 12 years. It's a good account but takes up a lot of time & energy. We never buy new scrubbers or buffers, way too expensive & new or used works pretty much the same. We use Signature wax which we get really cheap. We have at least 5 extra scrubbers in our warehouse at all times because scrubbers break down all the time. LMK if you have any questions
