    What sort of radius do you cover ?

    All my work is within a 3 mile radius at the moment but thinking maybe i should go further afield ?

    Mine is all within 8 miles :)

    I got a lot of work in a lot of areas now :) so if someone rang me now from any area i could fit them in a schedule easily that will suit me :D

    and 3 miles is great for u... u got good high prices aswell so your doing well mate.

    My furthest is 12-13 miles but it's on the run I did today, more or less a straight run with a few stops. Plan is to get more properties along the run and then split it into different days.

    About 12 miles. Love the idea of 3 mile radius but where I am not much within 3 miles so have to venture out a bit further.

    thats what I need to be doing mate, I'm up to about 60 now without any hard work but will have to push soon. I reckon I've got enough experience now to handle a lot more custies and I'm a lot faster than when I started.

    About 8 miles I think, but the majority is within 2

    Most of mine is within 3-5 mile(carlisle's only a small city) but I have a days work that takes me on a 15 mile circle but it's a very good earner all big houses in the country.

    I'm at around 50 ish I would have had around 60 but I have dumped a few just messers and people who dont bother leaving access and people who when i turn up say not today we will call you , so i nipped them in the bud before i start relying on the customer .

    a lot of mine are on 2nd cleans now so im flying through them my sister inlaws house took me 1 1/2 hrs first time round this time it took 30 mins so i will soon be banging them out .
    I'm thinking soon be time to take on an apprentice 30 quid a day 1 day a week or summat just to do bottoms while im up the ladder .
