  • when did you start window cleaning?
    1991..think it was a tuesday
  1. If it is a regular clean don't worry about it Pure water landing on the roof is just like it is raining and will cause no issues
  2. Pricing and price increases

    Franchising is a good idea but would cost more to set up Once up and running though I reckon it could be quite lucrative I have ideas but to start with will just be subbing out work until i have enough to fill a round full time for someone The idea is to eventually get off the tools so running all the day to day worksheets and employees etc would be pretty much my only job
  3. Pricing and price increases

    A few years ago i was subbing off a big firm and used to take double what i could do and pay another guy to do the extra I paid 20% and it was the trad days back then I took £200 for a day for me so made £160 Took £200 for him and paid him £10 ph as long as he did £20 ph of work Left me with £100 per day from him minus 20% so made £60 a day extra Subbing and taking on self employed guys part time is a good way to get built up before going the employment route once you have the work What's the worst that can happen? Have an extra round falling behind until you fill it with someone
  4. Pricing and price increases

    I will retire and have the business running for me Only here once and be buggered if I'm working till i drop My dad worked stupid hours for the future and died before his 54th birthday What was the point of it if you can't sit back and enjoy life 42 now and will be off the tools before 54 and enjoying myself As my grandad said you're a long time dead Prices need to go up i agree but it is a balance between growing a business on ok prices and being a 1 man band on very good prices However mine are going up in Jan as it has been 3 years since the last It all depends whether you want to be a 1 man band forever or a businessman earning from your businesses working for you while you reap the benefits of your hard work setting it up
  5. I miss frankncheerfull

  9. Payment

    Put a note through and say you have also added a £10 admin fee Totally legal and make her pay Tell her she has 5 days to pay or it will be passed on to your debt collection agency which will then incur additional fees from them
