  1. Simply Business

    We're giving away £10,000!

    Hi everyone, I hope it's okay for us to post this here (and apologies if we've got the wrong section).I wanted to let the members of Window Cleaning Forums know about a campaign we're currently running, where we're encouraging people to #TakeTheLeap and start/grow their business in 2020. And to help, we're giving away £10,000 to one lucky person. We know just how important small businesses and self-employed people – like lots of you – are to the UK. You're vital to our economy, provide employment, and keep local communities running. But worryingly, small business optimism is at an eight-year low, and recent research suggests over 600,000 small businesses could go under in 2020. When it comes to starting or running a business, research suggests finance in particular can be a challenge. That's why we wanted to help, by giving away £10,000, and encouraging others to #TakeTheLeap this year. You can enter the competition here – just tell us a bit about your business, and how the money would help.If anyone's got any questions please just shout! But otherwise, here's to 2020 being a successful year for all of you and your businesses www.simplybusiness.co.uk/take-the-leap/
  2. Hi Everyone I have been reading this forum for a while now, and I’ve got a huge interest in window cleaning but haven’t had the b#### to go ahead YET! great forum!! Im sick and tired of my job (long hours, **** pay etc) I really would like to work for myself and start up a successful window cleaning company. I’m 35 years old and I want another Crack at the whip, currently my salary is 27k. It sounds like a very rewarding business, and love the fact that nearly everyone on this site as a passion for their business. Obviously you get your chancers in the game, but I would like to go with the professional approach what I have been reading on here, ie) logo, business cards, leaflets, uniform, sign writing van, marketing campaigns etc (sounds like I am being ambitious, but to work for yourself and earn proper money, you have to I guess) There is so much valuable information on here and it’s like a back bone for the professionals. Ideally I would like to get into the WFP side of things. As I think me and the ladders just won’t get on, and by the sounds of it, it’s the future for the window cleaning industry? I have bought some trad gear already, ie) bucket, 12” squeege , applicator, micros, clothes, & scraper. I have been practising on my windows and watching you tube videos. (Wagga) - I take it this is a good learning curve Would anyone be able to help me out with a few of these questions? WFP - to start, would you recommend a trolley (pure freedom) or a back pack? How many houses would 25l containers do? Roughly Can I purchase the water rather than making this -seems complicated? (Will have to read up on this a bit more) When canvassing for work, and you get the nod to clean their windows, when would you do their first clean? That day/next day? How do you manage the round? With new customers etc. Because obviously starting out around my full time job ideally you would want to do the new customers the same day? Company name? Thoughts. something that’s quirky, or stick to something like JB WINDOW CLEANING SERVICES? what works best? Don’t want to run before I can walk, and jump in the deep end - but a van? It will be quite daunting competing with other window cleaners in the local area and I’m a newbie. Would that put new potential customers off? Should I buy second hand WFP gear to start (budget wise) or go straight in. What kind of budget would you say for leaflets, website, business cards, WFP etc. Currently got 1k left over from a loan as a starting point. I’ve got 100s of questions and I’m sure il bombard you with them and go through the forum looking for answers. Ps. Hopefully you don’t bombard me with “another new window, here we go” Thanks all. Why as this come out so big? @Gav

    Round for sale Bedfordshire

    PRICE: £15000 DESCRIPTION: I will be relocating soon and so I am selling my full round (trad cleans) to the highest bidder. This is a 9 year old round, mostly well established customers. The areas covered are mainly from Bedford to Biggleswade and Sandy, including villages between and around those areas. Half of the work is on a 4 week cycle and around half are 8 weekly. Some are 12 weekly. Average 4 weekly income is £3500. However, there are many opportunities to earn more from guttering/fascia/roof cleaning. Most customers are prompt payers, around 60% cash and the others by cheque/bank transfer. There is a good opportunity to grow the round in these areas too, since I haven't dropped any leaflets for quite some time. The work is priced at a good rate of £35-45 per hour, and that's me working alone. In terms of timescale, I am now looking to sell in the next couple of months, around June/July. I can provide more information if interested, and I can show you some of my work too. Gary 07843 444661 LOCATION:Bedfordshire PICTURES:

  5. hello guys, Just wondering if anyone could spare some time on answering the questions for me, would be much appreciated. What do you need to start up in terms of equipment? How much will the start up fees be? Do you need a Waterfed pole? Are there any alternatives to this? What method would you recommend using? Will it require training? If so can you send us any links or instructions? How much is the general rate? How much is the general rate for a standard 4 bedroom house? How long does a standard 4 bedroom house take? Best ways to market? What local advertisement can you use? How do you maintain your clients? Do you offer monthly subscriptions?
  6. HI there, I have had a potential commercial customer approach me to carry out monthly work on his business premises but he said my business would have to be VAT registered. I am however under the threshold and don't wish to voluntarily register any time soon. Has anyone else been asked this and is there a way round it as the job is a rather good one and I don't want to miss out on a job. Thanks!
