Just about to start my new window cleaning venture. After years in the print trade i am now venturing out cleaning windows both residential and then onto commercial when I am more established. Like most people on this site, start up costs have to be low as money is tight. The plan is as follows, any constructive comments would be appreciated. The end plan is a two man Reach and Wash Van with hot water feed, but to begin with its got to be the cheapest option. Unger Starter Kit (traditional gear) 18ft pole 100gpd reverse osmosis system without pump upgradable to a 200gpd or a pumped system later if needs be ESR18 backpack TDS meter I already have ladders and hoses. I am creating a small web site outlining my business, also started generating leaflets, flyers, Cards etc. If anybody has a good source for the following it would save me loads of hours of research. Best Equipment/Web Site for the start up equipment. Window Cleaning software Window Cleaning Templates for Risk Assessments, Bus Plans. Good name of a insurance company for insurance. I would like to sort this over the next few weeks, then its out onto the tarmac knocking on doors. Thanks everyone, and if anybody can share their start up story it would be appreciated, particularly pricing I am aiming at about £1 a window for a normal window which includes frames wash, then about £35 an hour for more labout intensive work like conservatory cleans, pvc revival or commercial work.
