    hi all i was sent hear by all round cleaning he is a mupet only joking lol

    any ways he set up his company in window cleaning i had the idear way back in 2003 after my daurghter was born but i dindt like the heights in cleaning :ph34r:.
    so after so many years in and out of work i finaly got a skill welding where i was good and was going to go on a coded corse bring in big bucks but becouse of the so called cut backs there wasnt any funding and i lost out.

    any ways now i was told to go into window cleaning so im having a glanced at the situation and keeping on a look out for jobs whether i could get into window cleaning and make at least 15k a year.

    so what you think i dont have alot of money.

    welcome the the forum!

    to set up as a trad window cleaner, and to get some decent ladders and equipment you could do it for around £1000.00

    It is possible that you can make that, but wont be easy, you need to pick up and do at least 32 jobs a week all at a min of £10 thats £320 a week,

    £320.00 x 4 weeks = £1280.00 a month
    £1280.00 x 12 months = £15,360.00 a year!

    so better get out there and pick up the jobs before someone else does.

    Does that £1000 include a van RC. Seems like a lot to set up trad. Cost me between about £200 including ladders & bars for my car for the ladder.

    No just the equipment. to get the proper trade ladders (double or triple) and 'A' frame ladders, then there is all the window cleaning tools etc.

    A frames start around £120+
    proper trade ladders from £300+ (non diy type as they aren't ment to be used)
    then there is the ladder mitts, ladder mats etc

    Doubt he will hack it for long tho I know what he's like lol .
    Wait until people start messing him around and him waiting to be paid he will soon pack it up lol .

    Like today for example 1woman says how much do I owe you I said £24 she goes ouch !!!
    I don't think it would be that much erm can I pay you later in the week as I have no money on me .

    Then another owes me £20 my lists getting bigger and bigger .

    not good then! thats why i state on my invoices that i have a late payment charge if not paid within 14 days. i have no debt on my list, apart for the ones that pay on line and takes 3 days to get into the bank.
