How much would you pay?

    Just doing a bit of market research

    How much would you be willing to pay for a cleaner or someone to do the ironing?

    Hi

     

    I know the cleaning agencies charge $23 per hour, but if you supply all the cleaning materials I would charge $25 per hour.

     

    Not really sure what I would charge for ironing but try $25.

     

    Are you thinking about doing it ?

    Hi

     

    I would say there is a market for it, try an advert in the messenger and see !

     

    I would also try and put in the advert that you are a brit, I think it could be a bonus.

    Hoovers are cheap enough and all the rest get from 'The Reject' shop.

     

    Good luck

    definately a market - my aunt does cleaning and has been turning work away. she does it on a couple of basis - one is that she works 'for herself' if you like with the client paying her. The other work she has is through a lady who runs a cleaning business, cleans herself and has people who kind of work for her - like my aunt - where she sets the rates and then the client pays the cleaner and the cleaner pays so much of their hourly rate to this lady.

     

    Does that make any sense or have I waffled too much?

     

    She gets $20-25 per hour and supplies most of her own materials.

    I am a teacher by trade but don't want to do teaching when we get over there in October. This is something I might consider - my OH calls me Monica (from Friends) so this cleaning lark might be just up my street.

     

    How easy is it to set up your own cleaning business over there. Who/what do I need to register with???

    Seriously..........

     

    I think there is work in that area.

    A lot of professional Aussies have cleaners.

     

    Best of luck :)

    Hi

     

    These are always looking for people to work for them. I understand they pay about $25 an hour and you can join up with a friend to work if you want. They have loads of work east and west of the city

    now i know why there has been no ironing done today ..... tut, tut! Only joking, he is doing a great job on the cooking front - early days guys, he is not doing too badly!

     

    Nick - there are a few places who iron by the basket full - I looked into this and there are two places listed in the yellow pages - I did some ironing for a friend and charged her about $15 per hour and she bite my hand off .... I think the other places where charging about $20.

     

    Good luck with it - let us know how you go.

     

    Cheers

    I'd say $25, go for it girl, give me a shout if you need any help with the marketing side of it....I am sure we can come up with an appropriate business name.

     

    Take care
