The comical side to ‘old school’ double glazing salesman

Oh, how times have changed! Buckinghamshire based Hazlemere Window Company appreciates the comical side to the ‘old school’ double glazing salesman.

We not only pride ourselves on our professionalism and passion at Hazlemere, but our sense of humour too! Over the last few decades the double glazing salesmen has been widely susceptible to criticism, stereotype and innocuous ridicule.

Fortunately, the tide turned during the 1990’s, with double glazing companies, in particular ‘old school’ sales personnel, were forced to change their attitude and application, or be faced with irrevocable indignation towards a wavering industry.

However, since the dawn of the new millennium things have dramatically changed for the better. The industry has extinguished the resentful blaze that infiltrated homes across the UK; with the population growing increasingly confident in organisations like ours.

So, to celebrate the (almost) reincarnation of the ‘old school’ double glazing salesman, we wanted to show you some very amusing cartoons we discovered recently that depicts our profession in the now distant past – which most of you can probable relate to! Enjoy…
