  1. I started joneswindowcleaners.co.uk about six months ago, I was told I need to buy a round however I heard stories about rip off rounds even when cleaners went around every house, in the last few months without buying a round I am up to around 1200 per 28 days and thats only about a day and a half a week and it's growing every week with the hope within 12 - 18 months of earning double that.

    Lots of hard work on internet and door to door, however my question is why do cleaners pay thousands for rounds???? when there is so much work out there

    Because they are scared of rejection , lack of time , established custom .

    Coz it easy thats why.

    Hand over £5000 for a £1000 worth of work. Month 6 you are in profit.

    When you have more than one van etc, buying rounds is a nice easy way to expand.

    You can buy a round and a van, wack a bloke on it and cop a wage from him.

    Rinse, repeat WIN!

    It's a lottery mate,I thought about but know people personally who were ripped of.I'd been in the game all my life and wanted to go alone.i done same as you,flyers ,good work,best window cleaner in area,and saved myself a few thousand.it can be done but a massive risk.
    I advise anyone not to although I sold a bit of work but hassle that was!

    Buying a round is easy but can sometimes make you regret it... just make sure u check it out before u ever buy :)
