Hello - My partner has had her work hours reduced and is wanting to do something from home to top up income. She has thought about ironing but would rather work from home but get out and about if that makes sense - rather than being in house all day. She has talked to a few people lately who have cleaners and pay anything between £8 per hour to £13 per hour and she was thinking of setting up and charging something in between. THe questions she wanted to ask are
- Do most cleaners supply cleaning items or do the clients leave their own stuff (obv. this would impact on cost)
- Insurance - will she need insurance and if so any recommendations how much she should pay for this
- SHe isn't wanting to set up a huge business - probably just work 8-10 hrs per week and is happy to do regular cleaning or occasional cleaning. Can anybody recommend cheap business cards - she went on vistaprint which stated they were free but then at the end they were going to cost quite a bit. She said may have selected wrong type so may try again. Any advice regarding cards/flyers welcome.
