    Im no expert on the matter but I think in time you will get quicker. I consider anything over 15 per hour good money

    Not to bad to start with, you will get quicker. Most of the guys that have been doing it for a while can get between £30-£40 an hour depending on size and cost. Best I have done in one day is £350

    depends on what van you have to be honest mate as to what payloads you can carry .

    when you are starting out mate just remember " quality over quantity " i like to spend a bit longer on the job to make sure its right to try and retain the customers
    if they see you are spending time on the job and doing a good job they appreciate it .

    I think you will speed up over the coming months and use less water. Remember you should be working on your prices just as much as you would work on your actual window cleaning.
