I couldn’t help but notice how dirty the windows were on a mid-rise building here in town. When I inquired from a business inside who cleaned the windows they said they weren’t sure but that they were supposed to be cleaned every year. They told me who owns the building and I ‘googled’ the name and found a website with an email address for contact. How should I go about requesting to put in a bid for the window cleaning? Should I just send over an email requesting this, or would it be more professional to write a letter the old fashioned way? I only have business cards and a website, no fancy brochures or anything. If I got the bid I would plan on renting a lift and doing it off the lift. Any suggestions would help! Thanks!!!

although they will probably tell you, “they aren’t dirty yet”
your battle is against “a budget fighting for zero”
commercial as a whole is pretty much looking for a price equal to “wages” (30% of retail price/sustainable business)
I would give them a call and let them know you would like to be put on there vendor list. Follow up with an email and even a letter… hit them from all fronts.
If you go inside the building and look in the elevator if they have one there is usually a little listing of who the property mgmt company is.
Do both! Then when you’re finished with that find a third way to reach out to them.
