    Do you lads put your full postal address on your website etc?


    The reason why I'm asking as received out of the blue by post 5 large A5 envelopes all from the same management company that I have had no dealings with in the past inviting me to tender for 19 newish buildings (blocks of flats) communal area exterior window quarterly cleans.


    Should I bother to put in a tender or not is the question as some numpty will probably do it for next to nothing just to get the work?

    Also been thinking after counting up all the flats which happens to be 214 in total that's another 214 potential new private customers to be had.

    What do you think now should I give it a shot?

    What can you loose from putting in a tender, what have you got to gain if you got it?

    Thats how I think :)

    Just done a qick calc and my rough price it's only worth about £43.84 a week net £2280 a year so nothing to get that really exited about.
    However gaining redular cleans on those flats aswell could push it upto nearly £30,000 net a year if everyone paid a tenner once a month. :rolleyes:

    Can't see everyone wanting them done every month though but gives you an idea how my brain works..... :D

    yer i have full address on mine!

    go for it, nothing to loose but loads to gain!
    it wouldnt be 214 private customers, as they will be paying for it within the rent of the flats or service charge.

    The mangagement company only want the communal windows cleaned (not the flats) every quater so you can figure that one out yourself.
