I live outside of Memphis TN and want to get into window washing to make some extra money. I don’t have tools or a truck but I do have some funds to get me started. How difficult would it be to make 100 an afternoon doing storefronts or fast food restaraunts? What are the minimum supplies I need to get started? My goal is to make enough money doing this to be able to go part time at my day job. Thanks!
u can make that in 2-3hours doing storefronts easy.
applicator, squeegee, pole, towels, scraper, belt, water, soap, stir stick, 5 gallon bucket, business cards, pen
Thanks. What about a ladder? If I am doing Starbucks, Burger King, strip mall stores etc it will be single story but these locations still have higher windows above my ahead. I figure a telescope ladder could fit in my car.
Are you going to get business insurance and a business bank account?
• Swagbucks. Answer survey’s for around $100.
• Test lotions and such for cash, pays $25 to $2,000
• Mow-N-Blow 3 or 4 yards per day at $25-$35 each
• Get free things off Craigslist and sale them on Craigslist
• Make things out of pallet wood and sell them
• Deliver groceries through Taskrabbit for $25 per hour
• Sell your blood for $30-$40; 4 x’s = over $100
There is more to window cleaning then splish-n-splash.
Yes if I need too.
Is making 100 bucks on a wknd washing windows an unreasonable goal? I am a bit confused by your comment.
To do any sort of legitimate business with any other business you should have those first, then hit storefronts and get business.
Store Fronts are often highly competitive and established businesses pretty likely have most of the customers . Many stores that do not have a window cleaner where window cleaners are active likely don’t see the value in hiring a window cleaner.
Expecting to go buy a squeegee and ladder, and jump into earning $100 a day on a weekend or two just seems cavalier of the business. You will run into a whole lot of “No” so running that list I posted of searching other angles might be better pickings.
It just seems to me that majority of people on here put their heart and soul into building a strong business, but that never stops others from thinking anyone can take that business on a weekend day and run with it. Pardon me if that sounds a bit pointed, but there are a ton of things out there can earn you $100.
a step stool… u wont need a ladder for most store fronts. and honestly wont need a step stool very often.
i would advise against a ladder/step stool until u book that job that requires it- whiih in store front land might not be ever.
as an example i hit 5 stores today, picked 2 of them for an extra 50$ a month. took me 20 minutes to walk all 5 stores. took me about 30 minutes to do both stores.
Will you be doing it with insurance and business account to start out?
He’s trying to say it takes a lot of pounding the pavement to even get a store non the less enough stores to even hit a $100 on a weekend.
