Cloudy2Clear Windows – Service With A Smile! It’s been a crazy few months for Cloudy2Clear Windows. The company which specialises in repairing windows which are steamed up, broken or damaged by replacing the panes – not the frames has grown rapidly as homeowners take advantage of their services. Managing Director Tony Telford feels that it’s all about service. ‘Our product is simple. If your double glazing is misted up we

can replace the glass at a fraction of the cost of a new window, in any type of frame, and with a new 5 year guarantee. But it’s not just about saving people money, although that obviously helps. Many tradespeople have struggled since last year and I honestly feel that during the good times a minority perhaps didn’t focus on customer care as much as they should have done. We make sure we turn up when we say we will,

do the job the customer requires and leave their house as clean as a whistle. I often get comments back from customers on how they really didn’t expect that sort of service which, in a way, is very sad for the service industry as a whole.’ Cloudy2Clear service Newcastle and the surrounding areas and Tony is finding that his approach is a major factor in his success. ‘The truth is that it’s not

just the personal satisfaction that I get from doing a good job but also it makes good business sense. I get a huge amount of business from friends and family of people I’ve done work for, which just goes to show how much a little bit of effort is appreciated.’ So, if your windows are steamed up, broken or damaged give Tony a call for a free quotation on 0800 61 21 118 and he’ll be happy to help!

LEGAL MATTERS

RUYS KINGSTON PARK

Solicitors cost a fortune so why use one? This week I was in court again with a business person who hates the legal system. The judges are rotten. The barristers are all stupid, and whilst I am a nice person they would do it all better. Which begs the question, why bother to instruct me at all, why not just handle their own divorce and financial settlement? This made me ponder the value of a specialist family lawyer. Of course it costs money, and of course the more you disagree with your other half the higher the cost will be. It also costs quite a bit to go to the dentist, but would you fancy filling your own teeth? What I can offer is knowledge, amassed over a twenty year period. Clients are often in a state of confusion, panic and distress when they first come to see me. I can help them form a clearer picture very quickly. Whilst every case is different there are regular financial themes that occur. I know the relevant case law and what the likely outcome would be if the matter were to be heard by a judge. I know how to pitch an offer to try to reach a settlement that is workable. I like to think that I can offer creative financial solutions. All of this is what a client needs quickly so that they can move on with their life. The legal process can be daunting. If a client is running a business that will probably have to be valued. Equally, if it is a new or, clearly not very profitable business then I would try to make sure that precious money was not spent on a valuation. Pensions may need to be

valued and advice given as to Pension Sharing. The correct level of maintenance needs to be agreed. In the long term it may be possible to pay a lump sum in lieu of maintenance, a clean financial break. Presenting a client’s case in the best way is crucial. A divorce client is often going through one of the worst periods of their life. They can be very stressed. A lot of Emmersons Solicitors business clients are used to being in control of everything. They can therefore become very angry and frustrated if they are on the receiving end of divorce proceedings. However, appearing in court without a family law solicitor could be a disaster. They may be too emotional and quite often too aggressive to a judge. One client recently said that everyone in the court room was too polite to the judge. Luckily for him I had advised him not to speak! Thankfully he followed my advice and only addressed the judge after an order had been made in his favour. He doesn’t know how lucky he is. So why instruct a solicitor? Knowledge of the law, the procedure, the likely outcome. An ability to negotiate on your behalf, to be your voice, to protect you from your angry self, and to guide you through the legal process. Or you could borrow my pliers and take your own teeth out!

OLD START FOR A NEW YEAR - BY RON CLARKE

OLD START FOR NEW YEAR The turkey has barely been digested and already your resolve is beginning to breakdown. Yes, it is that time of year when we probably all made a long list of New Year resolutions and already most of them have been broken. Don’t worry, you are not alone, very few of us who actually make such commitments actually see them through. No doubt you talked about getting into shape, getting down to the gym or the local swimming pool, or maybe deciding to cut down on the old alcohol intake, less chocolate or even giving up smoking. Or what about taking up a new hobby, changing job or even being a little bit more organised. The list is almost endless. But with the festivities just out the way there is little chance you have stuck to any of them. Well, maybe the road to resolution was paved with good intention in those early days as you put the goodies back in the cupboard, gave the pub a miss and sneaked off for the odd couple of lengths at the leisure centre. Even the bicycle was probably dusted down and pumped up for a solitary outing. But has all this continued? For the vast majority the answer will be a resounding negative as willpower has succumbed to temptation and you have already slipped back into the old habits. Well, at least you made a token gesture and actually made some resolutions for 2013 and made a start. But a start is about as far as most of us get. The finish line is never crossed as those new proposed lifestyle changes prove to be a quick 14

HAPPY NEW YEAR sprint rather than a marathon. To be fair, there will some of you out there who are well on the way to actually achieving the goals you set yourself as Big Ben chimed in the New Year and Auld Lang Syne was in full in voice. Please take the deserved plaudits. You are doing well. For the majority who have already fallen at the first hurdle and failed miserably the best resolution is probably to make no resolutions at all next time round. This means the self-inflicted pressure is lifted and we have more time and space to do what we want, when we want and if we want. Now then, where did I put those running shoes? Happy New Year

Right Up Your Street

Serving local communities since 2004 11 monthly issues • 52,400 booklets • Over 100,000 potential readers YOU CHOOSE where you advertise - and to how many people!

A VERY NICE THANKYOU

We do not actively solicit testimonials from our customers as we do not wish to “tout for praise”. However we received the following from one of our long standing advertisers who has asked us to publish it - on this occasion we are happy to oblige

Why Advertise with RUYS ? I havebeen advertising with this magazine for over three years now. Like all businesses we have struggled due to the recession. This year I had to be ruthless and cut out a lot of our advertising. As a business we monitor all new customers to find out how they heard about us. We have advertised online, in glossy magazines, newspapers and with Yellow Pages. We realized that none of the newspapers or glossy magazines were working for us. However, we obtain business every week from our advertising in RUYS. It is very cost effective, it goes to the right demographic areas for us. It saves us having to organise leaflet drops in those areas. I know that a lot of my friends hang onto RUYS all month in case they need a tradesman. I would use it before Yellow pages because a lot of trades people simply can't afford to advertise there. You are also more likely to find someone local to you. I firmly believe that businesses should trade with their business neighbours. Steve and Lesley are a pleasure to deal with. They know I am busy so they always remind me in good time that they need my order. Others I have dealt with just say too late. They are extremely honest, very ethical and go out of their way to help you. Their pricing is transparent, if you are a regular they will do you a good deal. They will always come up with a solution to fit your budget. Finally I would like to praise Steve for his artwork. He frequently changes my artwork and this is included in the very reasonable cost. The layout is always perfect and the print clear. I felt compelled to write this piece to say thanks to Steve and Lesley and because I always like to share a good business experience with others. I wish to remain anonymous because I do not want others in my industry to know how successful this advertising is for me. Mrs. JR.

In what continue to be challenging times for most businesses it is very gratifying to hear that RUYS is helping local companies and that oor commitment to friendliness, professionalism and integrity is appreciated.
