Gutter Sucker owners, David and Fran, have a lot of apprentices in their business: “my son on his days off, my daughter and other son who are at uni,” David said. “We bought the business because it is not a franchise and we run it as a local family business.”
David and Fran recently purchased the business which has been operating for nine years now.
“One of the reasons they moved to Montville was because of the trees, unfortunately that’s what creates leaves. The business’ client base is primarily situated on the Coast and we thought that there was a greater call for its services in the hinterland.”
“As locals ourselves, we are looking to expand and it is a goal of ours to build a second machine that purely services the hinterland.”
“We have found that our clients who have previously lived interstate, particularly those in fire danger and storm belt areas had their gutters cleaned regularly in line with their insurance requirements – they are anxious to get you there if it looks like storming or in dry fire danger times. They know our service will help reduce fire, water and storm damage.”
More than a “boy with a toy”, the difference in David’s gutter-cleaning system is their quiet, effective and quick vacuum, designed by the previous owner, an ex-engineer.
“The simplicity of the self-powered system is magic. It appealed to me because it requires zero power from our clients and access to their roof only. In the short time we’ve had Gutter Sucker we have realised how much our domestic clients and real estate agents love the one-on-one service they receive.”
The team arrives on time, at a time convenient to you and gets the job done quickly, offer a pensioner discount and can even clean your solar panels whilst they are up on your roof. Of course, they carry substantial Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance along with Legislative Working at Heights documentation.
The Gutter Sucker does not drop leaves, dust or rubbish into yards or living areas and the mulch created by the machine is a wonderful source of garden fertiliser. Our clients can choose to have us spread the mulch for them on their property or we can take away as required.
“The simplicity of the system and ease of it, the personal service we provide along with the positive response from our clients means that it’s not a hard thing getting out of bed every day to go to work.”
