Contract Cleaning,sole trader/trading or LTD Company




Do not not forget that you  may decide to take on further work - to overtake current work..

In that you  may leave the contract to take on work that pays better money...

You have the option to leave as a sole trader or limited company [where they  have the option to tender out - you have the option to leave]






THE PRICE DOES NOT GO UP

THE PRICE DOES NOT GO UP


Yes window cleaning for over 35 years in eastdean and friston.. and Eastbourne..

The price has never gone up - I leave it up to customers to out the price up... [commercial and domestic, social housing or private individuals]

They decide what they will pay... and what they can afford..

I find this works better and many customers have put the price up far beyond what I would have done






Commercial contract cleaning,tips.

Commercial contract cleaning,tips.




I have had Commercial  contracts for over 20 - 28 years.

Think before  you put up the prices in relation to Inflation...

 Many Contracts these days  are dependent on tendering..

At the point of putting up the price - the contractor can or may - tender out - to find "Competitors" and compare prices ..

Better too - keep a contract [if you are happy with it]

These days it is no longer about loyalty or the number of years you have worked ....

FREEZING TEMPERATURES AND SLIPPING WITH WFP



You have a system that will not work ...

Icicles |from ledges ?

Freezing water on the ground ?

Always ensure you use a microfibre cloth [or some kind of cloth] for cleaning
entrances/doorways/ .

To prevent leaving freezing water on pavements/doorways/entrances....




USING A TROLLEY SYSTEM IN FREEZING WEATHER..

USING A TROLLEY SYSTEM IN FREEZING WEATHER..

As per above and I use a trolley system [which suits my my finances and business..

I use various machines - for varying jobs and use a small space for the job I am doing on the day [within my van]

Whether it is "window cleaning" or "pressure washing" - "gutter clearance or high level vacuuming"

All is unloaded every day ...

___

Yes "Using the trolley system in freezing weather"...

[I have adapted and modified mine "to work for me and my customers"

So I make sure I put my [modified hose and hose reel]  indoors [as the water will freeze in the hose.

Make sure the containers [OUTSIDE] have enough methanol to stop freezing [If you do not have a garage -or lockup]

Make sure your  filtering system [if outside] is covered and protected from freezing...[bubble wrap is good]

Also your filter system needs protection from the sun to stop "algae bloom"
