Thursday, October 27th, 2022

Cleaning is practically recession-proof; it’s a growing and stable industry in Auckland, Christchurch and other parts of New Zealand; and there’s strong demand for cleaning services right now. If you’re thinking about providing commercial cleaning services in Auckland – whether in Northshore, Highbrook or beyond – there’s an easy way to get started.

How much money do I need to start a cleaning business?

This of course depends on whether you’re starting from scratch, purchasing a cleaning business for sale or joining an established brand. When you consider the costs of marketing and branding, operational and administration costs, staffing and so on with a stand-alone business, the benefits of buying a cleaning franchise within an established commercial cleaning company quickly become clear.

For example – you can start with as little as $15,600* with an AMC Commercial Cleaning franchise. This gives you access to equipment, training, operational support and staffing support, and you can minimise marketing and administrative costs through competitive levies which are fully tax deductible expenses. AMC can often help with finance to grow your business once you’ve made your start. You can even stay in your current job until you feel confident, as most cleaning contracts offer flexible working hours.

Is a cleaning business profitable in Auckland?

With the right support and clients, it certainly can be. In fact we offer up to 24 months of guaranteed cleaning contracts through our AMC Contract Value Guarantee to give every cleaning franchise a guaranteed income – no selling is required during this time. Just consider the amount of cleaning that is required every day and week across New Zealand. You could provide office cleaning services, retail cleaning, aged care cleaning, school cleaning or childcare cleaning in Auckland & Christchurch. You might branch out and specialise in medical cleaning or industrial cleaning. There’s genuine demand for each of these services.

Do I need qualifications to start a Auckland cleaning business?

Not with AMC. In fact, you don’t need any experience in business or commercial cleaning, as we provide all the training you need to get started with your cleaning franchise. What you will ideally have is a passion to provide great service to your customers and the drive to make your business succeed. We help with all the rest.

Just like yourself, the AMC brand began as a family business and now has 500 franchisees located across New Zealand and Australia. With over 2,500 employees, you’d be joining a respected brand that is certified across cleaning innovation, safety and sustainability, and works with some of the best known brands as clients.
