    All depends on you. Target the customers you want. What are you happy with?

    As long as I do $300 a day I can pay my bills and keep food on the table pay taxes and fund retirement. I am debt free though so I don't need much. I usually do $1700-$2500 a week depending on the time of year. Two or three jobs a day normally. That's all this body can handle.

    It really is about where you live and cost of living.. 7K is just as good as $3,500 in some of these states in the US might actually be less. Your money isn't even worth the same!

    My only goal, is crush the last year month by month.. I do NEED to hire again next year, and raise prices! We hit max capacity this year.. It wasn't a fun year!

    I try to do $2k per week. If I can do that then I can stay in the black. Always hoping for better. Lately things have been weird. Lots of repairs on the wife's car, other vehicle expenses, $700 electric bills, and a high amount of reschedules. It really hit me this month. Hope things even out moving forward.

    In the Midwest I expect each of our trucks to average $4-5k/week. There are weeks where it's a bit lower and many where it's higher, but roughly $800-$1000/day avg is great for us.

    It's such a hard thing to do comparisons. It's like Apples and Oranges.

    What is your market size? Who are your clients? Residential, commercial? Apartments, rentals?

    Marketing budget?

    We average closer to $3500 per week per truck. I am on one though and I only clean 4 days a week.

    Very true, and of course the important thing is how much you get to keep. I keep my expenses low. With health and liability insurance and the other necessary expenses for a one man show I only spend around $1000 a month. My only marketing is my web hosting fee of $13 a month, oh and I did have new shirts made this year. One of my customers designed a new logo and website on barter so I had my van logo replaced.

    My market is 99.9% residential, middle to upper class in a pretty dense population area.

    Yes, 99% of residential is one man per truck. Most all of our 6p-9p commercial type work is 2 man crews.

    Roughly $20k annually. Mostly on pay per click, google ad words, social media, and Angie's list. Very little to none spent on print, never done radio or tv. Alot of our business is repeat and most new customers are finding us through our ranking with Google or Angie's list

    cost of living here is insane but I got lucky and bought a good sized property a few years ago before it got too crazy.. just cleared an area about 20k sqft where we are going to put our commercial building, it was a jungle.

    gotta save for a while to pay for the building though, its going to cost about 30k+ for a 40x80

    we do pretty well per week but could be better, hoping the location with street exposure will help

    but ya a 1bdrm apartment here can run you 3000/month for 500sqft, so its a lot different than other parts of the US

    My two two man crews need to do 35-40k amount to float our boat in Scruz

    They did 64 in August which blew our old record of 50 something out the barn doors.


    My NV numbers while growing, are pathetic in comparison
