New to business in England

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

im new to the site so a small introduction, I have sold my company in holland to move to England next month to be living with my girlfriend and start a new window cleaning business.  In holland we always put a slip through the mailbox(or hand them over personally when they customers are home) that the windows has been washed today with payment details on it. Since I’m new to how business is done in the UK, I would appreciate it a lot if you guys could give me some examples of how you have set up all your info sheets or payment slips. Or sent me in the right direction with a link or anything that could be helpful.

 

thank you all very much

Welcome.

 

Yes that’s what I & most do. Just a A6 printed bit of paper with two blank bits to fill in, which is the day/date and the price of their clean. 

 

Underneath they have the option to send a cheque in the post OR pay online. 

Half of my customers are always out so makes sense. 

 

Hope it goes well 👍

Thanks. How do I do that?

Too late I guess.

Although most websites have their bank payment details visible. But yeh something to think about next time.

@Watermark this may help https://windowcleaningforums.co.uk/topic/24286-your-windows-have-been-cleaned-today-slip/ the way in which we all do it may differ somewhat I have payment cards which I had done by a local company, I now have them done by Vistaprint, I also use http://cleanerplanner.com which has the option to print off payment slips once a worksheet is set up these are editable with your own details not sure if http://aworka.com also has this option.

Just write out an invoice on a self carbon invoice book , post one copy through the letter box and keep a copy in the book to keep a track on payments / or not.
