    Hi,new member here,
    Found this forum as i was searching online to learn more information about starting up a window cleaning round,i'm currently working in a dead end factory job,the main benefits are that i start at 6am and finish no later than 2pm so i figure i have plenty of time in the afternoon to get a window cleaning round up and running gradually so that i can eventually leave my awful :mad: job and become a full time window cleaner :cool::D hoping to learn more info hints and tips etc on here,
    thanks

    pound a window is a good rule of thumb and then an extra pound for luck.don't think parts of the country come into it much.If your in no real rush you can canvass a few streets and if you get loads going for your price it may be too cheap if you get no customers your probably too dear.

    I wouldn't do 50p a window personally. As nearly said a pound is a good guide.

    Maybe £2.50 for a bay window,£2 for a patio door it all mounts up in time.If you work off ladder you got to set the ladder up climb the ladder clean the window and climb down the ladder,Bay window may need 3 ladder moves.average 3 bedder may mount up to £8/9 and take 15-20 minutes if your going in at 50p window you'll be doing them at £5 max you'll get plenty of work but not enough money to live on
