    My tip would be get some customers before you go splashing out on cleaning gear. Once you've got customers, then you know you're not wasting money. Look around the site for tips, don't read just the first page on a particular topic. Go through lots of pages. The more you read the more tips you'll gain. Once you've got your customers you will need to know how to clean windows. Clean your own and friends to get the practice. It's not hard :)

    Some basic tools you need before you get any customers - practice at home , friends etc .

    I can't imagine to get few customers - and you are not ready yet.

    about 200 - 300 quid you will have to invest anyway .

    Ladder being the most expensive ?! few squeegees (get with swivel handle) , a mop , a 6-9 ft pole and there you go

    my advice would be to get talking to a local window cleaner to you, tell him your looking to set up,

    ask him if you can work for him for free for a day or too just to learn the ropes,

    you will soon see if you like it and if you fancy starting up,
