Established Residential Window Cleaning Business For Sale

People often have good reasons to have their windows cleaned -to get their house ready to be sold or rented out, to spruce up the house for visitors, as part of a spring clean, or in the words of one customer who built their dream home:"there's no point having a house like this if the windows aren't clean."People will also pay good money to have their windows cleaned, especially in a well-to-do city like Canberra. We have benefitted from that fact time and again over the ten years our window cleaning business has been operating. One of us began this business as a solo operation, but the business grew, and for the past few years we have been flat out as a husband and wife team. During that time we have built an extensive customer base, with a lot of genuine goodwill from a lot of people. Most of our work is residential, but there is also a healthy dose of commercial work. On top of window cleaning, we also offer other services such as solar panel cleaning and gutter cleaning. Solar panel cleaning is quite easy to execute, adds handsomely to sales, and the solar panel cleaning market is expanding.

Our customers are spread out over a large area;both in Canberra and the many surrounding areas, including Jerrabomberra and Murrumbateman, and also places I had never even heard of before becoming a window cleaner, such as Wamboin and Royalla. Most of our repeat customers are serviced annually or six monthly, and many book the next job as soon as a clean is completed. Winter is supposed to be a quiet time for window cleaning, but we have built the business to a point where we are flat out even throughout winter. Demand soars during the end of the year -starting with the onset of spring and continuing all the way to Christmas. There is always too much work during this time, and we cant satisfy all of it, but any new owner would have the option of adding manpower to take advantage of all the opportunity. Other benefits to this sort of work include the opportunity to work outdoors, stay physically fit, be mobile and visit interesting places and meet interesting people.

What you will get if you purchase our business -

  • A large customer database -with plenty of important details on each customer.

  • All advanced bookings -all the way until Christmas.

  • All of our window cleaning equipment, including a water-fed pole and four ladders.

  • A very popular website that adds a fresh injection of new customers on top of regular customers

  • Training and ongoing support to ensure you adapt to the work as smoothly as possible. This will include communication on my part with customers about you the new owner, facilitating the transition.

  • A 2018 VW Caddy is available at an additional cost to be negotiated (if desired).

If the business is not sold by the end of the year, I will close it. If it is sold, I will stay involved for as long as necessary to ensure a smooth and successful transition for the new owner. This is the perfect time to buy it, with spring having begun and many months of high demand in front of us. If you are interested, you are welcome to come along and get a taste for a day or more at no obligation.
