I copied this below from 1 of andys earlier posts;

And the reason why i would like to buy rounds around the country because i want to control the window cleaning business in the uk.

on a basic note:- i want all the work in the uk, im only here to do business and i havent come to this site to make friends.

Sounds like Andy is is the business of canvassing, not window cleaning †Undecided

Perhaps he is providing a service to people who can't be bothered to canvass †Huh

One thing for any potential buyer to keep in mind. I've often found that new customers can be quite fickle. They've just got the new house. New window cleaner seems like a good idea. Once the first few mortgage payments come in, they're looking to economise. Guess which bill is first to go? You guessed it †Wink

Different with an established round where the customers have had a window cleaner for many years. Such a round would be worth much more than a brand new round.

Don't know if any others would agree or have had same experiences †Huh

Yes I agree that you are paying for the canvassing and it`s not cheap either.

I`ve also had a few problems when taking on new rounds and know what you mean.
