    £1600 in a year for 16hours work:) Think of how long someone has to work to get that lol.

    How did you go about getting the job? and was that the price every 3months or just becasue its first clean?

    yer not bad really, the first clean took the most time as it wasnt cleaned for 1-2 years.

    the property managment company phoned me and asked if i wanted to quote for cleaning them, that price is every 3 months.

    you work for someone else then?

    the other side of it is a bit slow at the minute, picking a few bits up here and there but there are a lot of guys doing the maintenance side around here. at the minute the window cleaning side is the best and makes more money.

    the worst thing with the maintenance side of things i could spend a day pricing up a job and then nothing comes of it so you loose on that.

    At the moment im at uni but its not for me. looking to do another course in jan. I do gardening work for myself and love it. im in the process of learning trad but its slow for me lol. Bought an applicator today as i was using a j cloth before and unger soap. All my work is within walking distance so when i get good at trad im going to ask my customers if they would like their windows cleaned :)

    bought a domain name from godaddy and will set up a site when i start out.

    Doing quotes and not getting them would be annoying but just part of the job i guess

    sounds good, everyone has to start somewhere! and you will get quicker as you practice. lot of huys use ecover and find it better than alot of the other soaps on sale,
    at least you have a good customer base with the gardening work so thats a good start. well if you need anything or any advise etc just post on here and get a load of help from guys on here.
