    There's a thread on another forum about this company. They seem to be targeting the North. A few from Yorkshire have said they have come across them.

    Any customers that you lose to them are fickle!

    They are buying a round without capital.

    Unfortunately from what I know they did the same in the commercial sector and it did work. From what I was shown. They plan Togo uk wide.

    It won't work on domestics. Commercial yes.

    They don't even have the .co.uk domain extension; that's pretty cheap and dodgey, or can anyone get a co.uk domain there?

    Here in Australia, you want a .com.au domain you gotta have a business number - is not available at all for personal use.

    Anyway looks like the Google of window cleaning is coming top a town near YOU :)

    Like a total wave - best buy a snorkel ;)

    Don't mean to wander off-topic, but I've officially registered both business number and company named with ASIC plus got the .com.au domain and a merchant paypal account.

    Now I just have to get a clue how to start a business! :)

    I just dislike people undercutting etc, I suppose it's not to say they will undercut. Iv lost a few houses this week and I'm assuming it's due to undercutting as it's been about the same area

    They generally charge a higher rate as they "take longer" than us lowly cleaners.

    The dislike means you dislike the post. Not the content. I would change it to an agree ;)
