As if I need to remind you, the weather is bad. Really bad. Sub-zero temperatures, snow and biting winds do not make for good conditions in which to fit windows and doors. But we are coming up to the end of the year, and if your order books are full, how easy is it to cancel pre-booked work?

We have a full order book up until we finish, and into January of next year. We also have no space left. If the snow means we have to cancel jobs, then we would be pushing work into the New Year, something which both us and our customers will not want.

Last night we’ve had the most snow so far, but all our staff managed to get in roughly on time despite the un-gritted Wakefield roads. More importantly, our fitting teams got out on to site. We have had to swap some fitting around, but as of yet nothing has been pushed into next year. Though if this weather holds up any longer, we may not have a choice in the matter.

The other factor which we have to take into consideration is our customers. It’s all well and good us saying we want to come fit, but at the end of the day it’s the customer who has ultimate choice in the matter. They won’t want big gaping holes in their home for the snow and icy wind to come through. 

We’re going to have to hope it doesn’t snow as bad as the forecast is showing for tomorrow, and make sure we can charm our customers into letting us fit…providing we can get there!
