No more apartments for me

I have finally got enough biz were I am not servicing apartments anymore. I always hated apts. No Money in apts. Most of the time you have to park far away then lug your equipment up a flight of cement stairs. NO MO APTS!

Hmmm......not sure i agree...

Why cut yourself short.. Every sale counts surely? Why not take on someone who will do just apartments for you? I.e if you get a phone call for an apartment clean should you really be turning it down? Why not offer it to a local company you could team up with who will do it or even a new employee.

Yes moving equipment can be a pain but clarity when making the booking on parking etc helps sometimes. For me allow the cost of carrying the equipment and up flights of stairs into your costs. i.e if it takes you 20 minutes then add this into your costs. If you have good customers they will understand the logic.

We will do apartments, we just charge them 25% more because they are usually not much fun. Plus we tell them we do not guarantee their deposit back. We hardly do appartments, they just don't want to pay for it.
