It’s bye-bye to the Prochem Blazer truck mount. The last machine has been sold to Coventry-based Mr Bit Cleaning and Upholstery Cleaning Services.

And Mr Bit boss Eddie Prudhoe is over the moon with his machine.

“It’s smashing it. The Blazer represents the best business move I’ve made,” says Eddie. “It has opened so many doors for me.”

Eddie had his new truck mount installed into this very smart new VW Crafter by John Hattersley’s fitting team at Prochem’s headquarters in Chessington.

“It’s quite simply the easiest and best service I’ve had,” he continues. “Any question no matter how stupid I thought it may appear was met with helpful answers. The install only took two days and the training I received was brilliant.

“The Blazer is so reliable, I’ve had no issues with it and it’s simple to operate.”

This truck mount extractor is a first for Checkatrade member Eddie who has been running Mr Bit for six years now. He has found there to be a huge difference coming to one from using a portable machine.

“The most significant difference is the power to hand and speed at which it works,” he tells us.

“These factors alone have meant I have been able to get more work to the extent I have tripled my sales turnover since I got the machine. I am picking up regular repeat business.”

Coronavirus lockdown saw Eddie take a £2000 hit to start with but he picked up end-of-tenancy cleans and these have made up the difference and more. In a bid to make the most of new business opportunities when on-site, he has also got himself trained with Prochem and learnt to do tile and grouting work.

“The aim is to be able to pick up more work from the customers I have as well as expand the client base,” he says.

“Prochem for me make great products – I use their chemicals. And the company fields a great team offering an all-round five star service.

“My next step will be an upgrade to a Prochem Legend truck mount.”
