    I've spoke to kapre but no more. Charges 2600 for 1000 but last time we spoke he said he was going to raise prices? I asked him he would do 500 of work first but had no reply so u left it.

    He canvasses an extra 15% so 1150 of work for 2600 on top to cover dropouts but the main reason I decided against was he doesn't guarantee 2nd cleans which to me is a bit too risky having had a high drop out rate from canvassed work in the past.

    But ultimately like any canvassed work u pay your money and take your chances.

    I'm sure the price is dependent on where you are, frequency of clean. I was happy and I'm tight. I'll update when I've done the work.

    Yeh, so far, 2 cancellations before cleaning. Pricing is good. Most importantly, no complaints from customers. It is a bit weird if you're used to canvassing yourself, because you already have a connection with customer and an idea of what you're up against and any special details that a canvasser might not notice.
    I'll be using them again and I suppose that says enough really.

    Wouldn't the money your spending on canvassers be better spent on advertising, local rag, flyers etc ? Just a thought. In my mind you get better customers when they come to you.

    lol canvassing is a rapid way of expanding your business if you have the money to lay into the cost to aqquire the work

    u can drop as much leaflets as u want and advertise everywhere u will not build a round as tight as u wud canvassing nor as fast


    my guy went out two weeks ago done a few streets beside each other picked up 27 in the space of 4 streets all monthly no drop outs and all well priced and only one job bad access u try to flyer drop for that response
