    I'm just starting up and any advice would be loved.The HMRC are sending me a package so i can start the self-employed part and spoke to simply business today about getting liabilty insurance (£69.12 per year).

    I've got some business cards made and on there way and flyers and will be going canvassing as soon as.
    I would love any advice on things to look out for and really struggling on how much to charge.I dont want to undercut other window cleaners and dont want to over charge as to put customers off.

    So any help would be appreciated, king regards Jason.

    Thats good to know thanks.
    To reply to Tuffers i've only cleaned my own windows and was happy with the results.That said...i find it harder with each variation or size of window.I've been cleaning my windows with a rainbow type action which i have seen on youtube demo's which is good.Whilst i'm waiting for all the paper work side of things to go through i'll be cleaning friends/family windows for some more practice.

    Till then i'll plough through the website and see if i can pick up any handy info...thanks.
