    thinking about buying this round,



    This is a very small compact round all work is connected and in walking distance.
    The work is just off the M621 off the M62.
    Earns £400 a clean.
    Cleaned by traditional methods.
    Earns between £15-20 hour
    At present the work is done 4 weekly but customers are requesting to be cleaned every 2 weeks.
    Customers are mostly made up of elderly people and all pay cash on the day,

    £1600 ono no time wasters

    I dont know much about buying a round but if they all elderly I'd be cautious they may all be ready to pop their clogs soon ha ha .

    but on a serious note thats 4x the round worth .

    IMO if you can get it for £1300 I'd have a look. See if you can maybe do a deal where you pay say 50./' now & 50./' later & ask for a few random numbers to ring to make sure it's genuine. I know it will take you 3 cleans to get it back but after that it don't sound to bad. I'd defiantly enquire if your serious about it. Also if you got that kind of money to spare think about a canvasser. They usually charge x2 so you could get that for £800.

    check if the customers really want to go to 2 weekly & if you want that frequency if so that only makes it x2

    yeah the thing that is getting to me is that the mobi number that hes given is the same number of the firm he said he bought the round of a year ago??

    also the same number comes up for other stuff on google?
