    Anyone ever go on tell and see how many windies are in your area (not your town, but your coverage area)

    I just did and was shocked to see 19 as i never see windies around here.

    So went through and looked at each ones website, about 12 don't really do widow cleaning and don't offer many, if any of the services I offer. 5 have no websites, only two real competitor which is sparkle and rise n shine.


    So how many come up for
    Your area?

    I was also thinking that for a 10 mile radius, plenty of work For 18 windies lol

    There'll be plenty more mate, in your area don't think theres only 18 windies. Think of the guys that have established residential rounds that don't need to advertise and then the beer, drug, pocket money and immigrant windies. Still there will be enough work for ya to make a living but I'd multiply that by 4-5 times at least.

    I think there are about 10 in a 5 mile radius but I saw a new guy yesterday so I think a better number would be about 30 or 40 but i am in london so there are thousands of houses on a 5 mile radius.

    cant say 10 mile becuase I have never gone that far, too many houses in 5 miles. 150 000 houses to canvass.
