Advice with approach to companies


Recommended Posts


Hi everyone,


Started up a small business doing exterior cleaning recently, was employed by a company doing the same thing for a few years so decided to go it alone. Pretty much all the work I've been getting is pressure washing which is fine as I enjoy it. There's too many window cleaners undercutting each other in my area so the pressure washing suits me as not many other people are really doing it in my area. I've been getting work doing driveways and patios but it's relatively small jobs. I was wondering if anyone could help me in my approach to companies. I've been emailing a fair few just basically telling them what I offer but haven't had any work as of yet. I'll keep plugging away but just hoped some of the experienced folk could give me some pointers. I've been emailing haulage companies, plant hire, caravan parks etc. Thanks in advance.

Just keep plugging away, you will always need a bit of luck to get to speak to the right person at the right time. Business clubs might help and it is more likely to attract someone's attention if you have any training / H&S certificates. If you have try and get to speak to the H&S department and ask them how you could get work. Property Management Companies are very hard to crack but once in can be very good business.
