    When i first started out i gathered i was driving from job to job etc was a right headache

    but now i can do 3 houses at 1 time with my van parked in 1 place

    some places i gotta drive a bit out of the way were ive just got that 1 house... but thats part of the game mate

    When building a round up from scratch mate u gotta live with this and just improve and improve :)

    but when u get more busy... ull probs end up selling them on or something

    For newer guys it's quite hard to get compact work.. A lot of our work is streets or developments of 20s and 30s.. And a lot are all within 1-2 miles away from my house.. I have 1 area nearly 100 houses over 5-6 streets..

    If I was new starting up I wouldn't worry too much about it being compact, but I would just target £20+ houses..

    100ish houses on one estate, another 50 dotted around the town, all within 2/3 miles of my house, so pretty compact. the estate with 100 houses i blitzed door to door for 2 weeks and the best thing about it is every house on the estate is identical, so its easy to get in a rhythm with them.

    dont just hope, everytime you finish a first clean, knock either side and offer to price theirs while your there, alot of people go for it if they know you clean next doors already!
