Hi everyone, Going to start out window cleaning end of january- my thoughts- everyone will be either spending for xmas or skint after- 20 jan is start off day. I'm going to canvass the hell out of a small town of 7500 properties. Location- Suffolk- Bungalow City to be precise. Competition- After reading the forum, they are not my customers, if they approach me and already have a windy then fine but won't be looking to poach anyone. Bungalows- not sure what to charge, surely it's easy for people to do there selves if they have a bungalow, although this is a retirement, pretty sleepy suffolk market town. Any help on pricing would be much appreciated. Pricing model:- if i secure 3 properties along the same street at £10, to get the next two would you drop to £9 and to get the next five drop to £8? Equipment- I'm going to buy a 25 litre trolley and buy a pole. This is to stop buying a van so early. This leaves me with lack of presence- i.e a visual sign of a van but will wear uniform with name of business etc. R/O system already present. Payment:- I will eventually setup a website- I have done this before for other businesses, i will make sure paypal is an option of payment to avoid the dreaded knock on the door when no one is ever in. Added Services- I was thinking of cleaning the wheelie bin whilst at the address. This is to add value. My background is chemicals so the idea would be to use a seperate brush for the bin and then leave lemon/bubblegum/vanilla. This is an added value service so i'm thinking of doing this for a low price of £3, if they dont want there windows cleaned then it's £6. I appreciate any advise, i've done the university, couldn't do the office- surrounded by vipers, and slit your throat in your sleep individuals! Thanks Dave.
