6 week frequency - number of cleans a year



Recommended Posts

Why are you having jobs due on certain dates? Just so unnecessary. 

I text the night before, I get round roughly 6-7 weeks and this system works without any pressure or hassle. 

Im off to Vegas Friday and when I get back I have no intention or pressure to ‘catch up’, just pick up where I left off.

I genuinely think some of you guys are being far to regimental with this.

So if you have a week off you make those due clients/jobs wait 8 weeks before their next clean ??, If so total madness if I have a week off i will drop straight back on to the work that was made to wait due to me been off and they in effect they are all a week behind until fully caught up. 

why is it total madness to skip a month....theres people on hear that do cleans 6/8/12 weekly are they crazy then.
so if I have a round that customer are 4 weekly i start 8am and most days finish between 4-5pm.
generally struggle to fit new customers in.
I'd say 90% customers know I'm regular as clock work get money left out gates left open around days I'm coming with out having to tex, call, or remind.

now if I have 1 or 2 weeks off explain how I'd fit those customers in as well as keeping to rest of my schedule when I get back..
surely somewhere down line if try fit all these in on top a lot of my customers would end up waiting 6-7 weeks for a clean any way where I'm trying to cram these in as how do you fit 1-2 weeks work missed on top of a packed out schedule....that is what's crazy...

customers understand that your only human and like any job you are entitled to a holiday.
if I'm going to be off next month, the ones I'm missing I will let know in person if I see them or leave a note after I clean month before, also leave a message on my website/facebook saying off between ?-? any customers due between this time I will be skipping a month.
never had any annoyed customers just messages of ok have a great holiday etc..
so don't see how its madness or crazy..

if i had the time to try cram in 2 weeks work on top of my usual work, think that would suggest to me that I have too light of a work load and need to grow my business more,
if thats the case for you, then at some point down the line when your business grows, you will also understand some of us on hear that's commented that say we skip a month you will under stand why it isn't possible to just catch up with them.

Dave B has a 6 weekly round where he makes £200 every day. Darren G has a monthly round where he makes £200 every day. Steve G has a 4 weekly round and he makes £200 every day.

Dave, Darren and Steve all take two weeks off for the Monaco Grand Prix (sounding good Steve?) And a few beers.

Which one looses the most money?

DO YOU GET IT YET?

my work calender is yes 4 weekly ..each day full so if I had a week off it gets skipped...theres no way I could fit in that weeks work the next week as well as that weeks work...
then you have the scenario following month your gonna have to do those customers your fitting in a week or so early to get your work back in to the usual 4 weekly schedule,
how do you get round doing your customers the following month that you've done late last month, you must be doing them early say 3 weeks or less to get back on track other wise surely the week you had off the following month you have no work scheduled, because you've crammed it in the week you come back of holiday...
just don't make sense to me.

There's no cramming.

 

My work is 4 weekly.

 

If I have a week off, I start from where I left off so the entire 4 weeks gets shifted down a week, so in effect it will be 5 weeks since I have done them all when I get to them but once they are done they are 4 weekly again.

 

Forget months, days, dates and times I don't deal in them.

 

Start where left off

Dave b . Got his first weeks work done that was due when he was away , before he went away . When he came back he got the second weeks work done and gradually getting it all back on the proper week . Result he didn’t lose a penny .           Now Darren g . Couldn’t pull any work forward as he was having two weeks off in the middle of the month . When he came back he tried to do as much as possible . But before he knows it the month is up . Result he lost about 7 days pay .                     Now Steve g he is well lazy , worked his 4 weekly as normal . Didn’t think to do some early . Had his two weeks off . Came back started where he left off . Result he lost a full 2 weeks pay .
