    Hi all, great site with loads of great information. I am another 'newbie' looking to get into the business and have read posts about building a round. What frequency do you find most custys want, 4, 6, 8, 12 weekly etc. Also do you allow the custys to choose the frequency they prefer or do you guide them to fit in with your 4/6 week round?

    I offer monthly or 2 monthly as it suits my round.

    I encourage all my domestics to opt for 4 weekly, most do as they want clean windows all the time, I also offer 8 weekly and some prefer this, I charge 50% more on 8 weekly, for example a 4 weekly at £15 would be a £22.50 on 8 weekly.

    Different ball game for commercial, generally they will call the shots on how often, then its up to you to price it right to suit you and also win there business.

    It doesnt really matter what you choose, 2, 3, 4 5 6, 7 9 12 weekly or monhly etc

    pick what you thinks going to be best for you and sell them on the idea, if looking for 8 weeklys for example you could tell them they dont really need doing 4 weekly as purified water keeps em cleaner longer if you want 4 weekly tell them 8 weekly is too long and they will get dirty, same goes for 6 or 12 etc. Just BS them basically theyll believe owt you tell em
