Round For Sale in Manchester

Recommended Posts

WWW

I bought part of a well-established round - 5+ years - from a friend and then grew my customer base over the course of the last 15-16 months or so.

 

Between April 2018 to March 2019 inclusive, the average revenue has been £1,775 per calendar month. For me, that is about three days’ work per week on average, giving me time to pursue other interests.

 

The average job price is £13 with 82% of customers on a six week cycle. 52% pay by cash, 22% by bank transfer, 19% by GoCardless, the remainder by PayPal (with one solitary customer paying by cheque).

 

All the work is organised using Google Sheets. So, to support the sale I have prepared a spreadsheet and a couple of google maps showing the revenue by postcode for April 2018 to March 2019 and my current customers by postcode. The spreadsheet also lists the customers added in the last year.

 

Spreadsheet:

I’m selling the round due to a relocation to London.

 

I’m asking 4x revenue, or £7,100.

I don’t think it’s very wise to be posting these details on a public forum , the work could be pinched by someone

on a side note.... how did you input the postcodes of customers onto a google map and then save it for later? I have been wanting to to do this for ages to show a visual spread of my work. cheers

Yes also I am not sure it would be GDPR compliant. Either way maybe best to remove those links and share privately if needs be.

How many hours a day are you working if I may ask? I’d expect to be covering that amount of work in a good 40 hour week. It looks like a lot of driving covering a large area in a busy part of Manchester. Don’t mean to sound harsh but your expectations of value sound a little high. For that price I’d want the work a lot closer together.

I have only made available information down to the postcode level; there is no customer identifiable information (unless a postcode maps to a singe address, but I'm not aware of any).

There is no personally identifiable information in the maps or the spreadsheet.

In a 40 hour week you would need to clean at least 6 customers per hour; that's impressive! 🙂 It takes me about 15-20 minutes to clean a typical three bed semi 🙁 And some jobs are a lot bigger. I aim for about £25 per hour.
