    Folks,

    I am keen to start taking on commercial work but I lack the knowledge with regards to who to approach and where. Who should I contact for council property work and when it comes to searching through google what search criteria should I enter when looking for agencies that deal with commercial property maintenance and tendering. I live in Staffordshire bordering the West Midlands so if anybody knows of any agencies in this area that I could try I would be very grateful.

    A big ask I know ...but If anybody does have the answers it would be helpful to many of us that are on here..

    Thanks in advance Mick......

    I,ve got a 3 story maisonette cleaning the communal entrance and stairs front and back it pays £35.00 and takes about an 1hr and 1/2. I am aiming to approach estate management agencies but progress is slow as i need to source the right agencies at the moment..thanks for the advice.. I,ll try a few shops locally..:)

    I see mate i got 60 pound pub which takes me 2 hours mate :) but i wouldnt of been confident doing this pub without doing them local shops first... its like a big step forward.... u seem like a small man doing a very big job :p but cos u build it up gradually it seems like your on the right level :p lol

    but if u get the big contracts then well done but go for what u can anything is worth going for as long as u can do well from it :)

    but my last 2 commercial jobs i gained are the 2 biggest ones i got :p thats a 18 pound major retail chain once every 2 weeks and this 60 pound pub once every 4 weeks :)

    hopefully a bigger 1 comes in soon ;) lol
