    Sounds like you have same prob as me I live in a village with 6 cleaners covering it they run it like a club people have had same cleaners for years it's like an unwritten law they stick with em loyalty I suppose may just have to try a little further mate if an areas sewn up it will take persistence to get in prob have to buy in

    just seems every place i go to there windows are cleaned and theres no dirt on them. if i come across homes with the odd bit of algae in the sills i pop a leaflet in and i sometimes knock but its a no go. ive covered almost everywhere within 15 miles of my home. looks like my only option is to get someone to come with me and pay them to knock and talk the lingo OR pay for advertising at 80 odd quid a month.

    i get jobs but i have to spend mass amounts of cash on advertising to get anything. theres so many cleaners who have been going 15-20 yrs and they get all the work

    Used to work for a firm in Banbury can see the attraction for lots of competition up northwest I've been looking upto 42 miles away for start up chances I need a good healthy start to pay the misses what she's used to couldn't get going locally would be too slow plan to make. A bit by travelling with the aim of building my way backwards to my area
