    Used to be at first house for half 7, now it's more like 8, purely as I like the extra sleep!

    Mate of mine starts at 7.15 and never has a problem, he chooses the customers that are up very early to start each day, he's fine tuned his round to perfection, 800 customers, only two workers, and he's minted. Trust me when I say this though, he works very very hard. Earns a fantastic living though, and always starts dead on 7.15! - why I told you all this I don't know! But yeah, 7.15 is the earliest i know of anyone starting residential...

    About 10 ish but might start earlier if I need be also depends what I'm doing. I don't do pressure washing, guttervac work etc before 9 in a residential area just so not to pee people off.
