They say that one man’s waste is another man’s meat and this is a perfect analogy to sum up that we all ave different needs and necessities in our life. With this in mind I wanted to talk a little today about how great a ladder can be as a gift, yes that’s right, a ladder. We are not just talking any ladders here however, we are talking about picking one up from the best ladder company around and giving it to someone you care about as a gift. If you think this is a crazy idea then you probably don’t know anyone who would need a ladder and you can stop reading here if you like. If you are intrigued then you perhaps do know this kind of person and whilst you may not get excited about a new ladder, here is why they might.
The stability of a ladder can decrease over the years depending on the material and for anyone like a window cleaner who uses a ladder regularly, this can be a big problem. Let’s say that a window cleaner is using an old ladder and happens to fall because of its lack of stability, that person won’t be able to work for a few weeks because of the fall and that means that they can’t earn money. a new ladder which has smart modern design can provide much more stability and remove the risk of falling.
If you are carrying around a ladder all day it can play havoc with your shoulders and the older ladders, especially the metal ones, use aluminum which, whilst it is lighter than other metals, can really cause you some discomfort over time. The new metal ladders that you can buy however are super lightweight and they are still just as strong as the old ladders. Imagine giving your window cleaner friend a set of ladders which will lighten the load off their shoulders the next time that they go to work, they will surely be overjoyed at the difference in weight.
They say that a dog is for life and not just for Christmas and the same can be said of a good set of ladders. Assuming that they are cared for well, stored in a smart place and that they are not mishandled, a good set of ladders really can last you for a lifetime. Many people prefer not to spend money on a great set of ladders which means that they have to replace them every 5 years or so. If you are able to invest in a great set of ladders from one of the bets companies however, you could be setting the recipient up for life.
It may sound a bizarre suggestion but if you do know someone who regularly uses ladders, they would make for a very good gift.
