DON’T USE THESE CLEANERS
We hired these people because of the “100% bond guarantee”. The cleaning was done but there were many items that weren’t done. They came back a second time and again there were numerous items that still weren’t completed. Considering the money we paid, this was very disappointing. In the end my daughter and my husband spent nearly a day completing the jobs. Do not use them! Janelle

WHAT A RORT
What a filthy rort. Paid $6,000 for a franchise from this company. Got no support at all. When I wanted to cancel, they said the termination fee is $60,000. Taking legal action through the Court . More fees to pay now.
Do not hire this dodgy business
Was booked by our property manager for bond clean. When I looked through the unit post "bond clean", it literally looked like they had just wiped a few things and vacuumed half the place. They dotneven do a half ass job. Do not hire them.
Hubby and friend were looking to startup a small business with their hard earned money. Unfortunately was tricked into something bigger with promise of guaranteed returns that was even mentioned in contract. Needless to say the returns never come and CEO did not even bother to respond when a mediator tried to help. In short, very good in painting a very good picture of the prospect but all they want is just your money. It's more than 2 yrs now and both of them are not getting a single cent back! Many have fall prey. Just stay away if looking for business opportunity no matter what they promise you!
- Express House & Office Cleaning
The most unprofessional contactors
Change price after the job is finish, refusing to correct typos on records and and blame their computer for the typo. They except the clients to correct a document. If you need to get anything done go for someone else you might have to pay more but it will save you on the long run.
Express cleaning Canberra by Rosemary Teng
Absolute waste of money. I asked for a bond clean of a 2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms unit. I described very detailed what needs to be done (wipe the walls, wipe kitchen bench top and window. There's no furniture in the house. Just the floor and walls to be clean. They gave me a quote of $150. They sent me 3 people, worked for about and hour and left saying they had to go. The wall were not wipe at all. No cupboard being wiped. The floor was covered in fine dust and the guy was not thinking of vacuuming before mopping. I had to tell him vacuuming first. It was a really bad service. Avoid this group at all cost.
Biggest scam to the point its not worth suing!
worst mistake i ever done was to sign up for test n tag franchise through Express and also all 5 members that signed up at the same time as me all cancelled the express franchise and i'm stilling waiting for a refund its been like 6 years now biggest joke for a company please if anyone is looking join i advise you not too unless your willing to loose your money,things have changed since i bought a franchise with them it used to be 5950+gst and now its like 10k also they guaranty me between $500-$2000 dollars a week when i signed up and a minim...um of 5 to 10 calls a week and i received 1 call that whole week and made $50 if your really still interested in test and tagging go out and do the 1 day course which is same course they send you to do as well,which you can find online by a test and tag machine and print out pamphlets and cards which that's what they give you to promote the business and you can do it yourself with out paying $180 a week in franchise fee also there's a government scheme called ( NEIS Program) run through mission Australia which encourages new businesses which basically help you out for the first year and pay you, that's right they pay you 300 a week to help you out with expenses for the first year only. get the government to help you out not Express you'll just run yourself into financial struggles with Express!
Horrible company to work for
In 2015 I made calls to many companies to buy franchise but all the company I called were expensive. I finally find Express I thought was cheap that I could afford. I call the company the CEO of the company wanted to meet me as soon as possible. We met at the cafe he said he could not give any information about their business until I pay $500 so I pay and they also try to sell me an iPad for $400 I said NO. What they said is the business mode is so easy you will be earning $ 700 plus a week. It was really good news to hear. Next day we met they...gave me small books few for franchisees lawn mowing and Cleaning and others. They promise it's so easy all you need is 3 customers pay day I pay the full amount of more then $6000 for lawn mowing franchisee. After signing up the communication didn't exist they were only calling each week if I didn't pay $180. They were harassing at that time I could not even afford cheap meals for myself as I payed all the funds. It was so hard that I was suffering depression when I try to explain that I wanted to cancel they said pay the fee and additional fee is more then 5000 to cancel. I cancel less then 1 year in the business and after 3 years I'm still paying off. Please don't buy anything from this company listen to the bad review.
Express was a ponzi scheme run by S..tts and Ar..n family. The whole franchise system here is designed to scam unsuspecting victims. They sold people Masters on false promises of guaranteed fixed returns. Then when they were running out of Masters they offered them to buy shares and started scam again.
They then opened 20 fake companies and transferred money to those in name of consultation. If you download liquidator report on Express you can see it all.
They are now running the scam under Waves Details Pro and Blast Pest Management.
They deliberately made people fail so they can resell the franchise.
Franchise rip off
I paid up front $10,000 for a Building inspection franchise got about $700 worth of equipment and a half day run down on how to inspect a property, a day at the head quarters in Brisbane on how good it is to be a part of Express Business Group, at first there was some help from the master franchisor but after a year or more of struggling to build the business it became unattainable I have had to go back to working in the field I wanted to get away from because of finances I lost my initial money I out laid and a lot more, things got that bad I could not meet the $180 a week fee and refused to pay.
I am thinking of putting in a small claim with the courts to see if I can recoup some of my money, has anyone else been down this route.
Waste of money
The guy who charged $350 plus gst for a supposed bond clean was a complete rip off!. I needed to pay another company to come back and do quite a lot of items missed by the guy from Express House Cleaning. He refused to return and insisted that I was wrong.
Avoid this company at all costs!
Don't wast you time and money
I was the owner of 2 franchises. One of the 2 franchises was sold to a new franchisee ONLY because the sales person was incompetent and made an error. Lucky for me the incompetency was discovered after the contracts was signed.
I still have a valid franchisor contract but the blood succors refuse to pay the royalties and stopped answering my email the day my franchise contract law fully ended and I stopped paying franchise fees.
This incompetent mob sells franchises to people that are struggling to communicate in English. When the franchisee ended (at an additional $4000 plus) his contract Arcon & CO blamed me.
I was in business before I invested in this ponzi scheme and with hard work I survived but lost a lot.
I’ve been with Express since 2012..
I was a franchisee at the start, than a franchisor. So just like many others I have invested my money into this Company. I have received help when I asked for it. Also received the income on my investment as promised. I am still with the company now.
We are extremely happy with the service Express Business Franchisees offered, we have used property maintenance in the South Brisbane area and carpet cleaning in the Paddington
area and found them to offer be fast, efficient, friendly and well priced. We would recommend them to anyone.
Not very happy with job done.
We used Express Home and Office cleaning service in Narre Warren, Victoria and were not impressed with the rushed job done. Skirting boards left dirty. Pantry floor not cleaned. Also bathroom door left closed with exhaust fan still on. Would not recommend these cleaners. Frank
Loophole scam preying on desperate people
Loads of promises. Happy to take your money. Not happy to return your money . Took to mediation only got CEO to agree to return $2k . Still waiting . Never could trade as Rentals Managment . Very clever Scam . Have spoken to many many people both in Aus and USA and NZ who wish they had never heard of this company. Be warned if it seems to good to be true then it is.
- Express House & Office Cleaning
They deliver what they promise.
Its low cost entry. Ongoing training is very helpful. You don't need to be experienced to run your business.
Because its low cost entry anyone can buy this franchise. This may include those who are very cheap and expect to earn lot of money without any work. Because it low risk they are not serious about doing work and fail at the end.
If you follow the guidelines of your mentor then you can't go wrong.
I am earning about $2400 per week and have got plenty of work.
I have bought two franchise services in last year and planning to buy more in future.
Its low risk business and nothing to lose. The only condition is to work hard and be loyal to yourself.
Hope this is helpful.
To sum it up they breached my contract, do not return phone calls or emails, as a franchise owner I would not recommend this company. They promise things but they don't comply with what they say or do, I bought an AMF and was told I would get payments for franchisees this has never happened, just keep coming up with excuses. Just want to make people aware this company will scam you.
Worst company, you will loose your money. This company making money from loophole of law.
Bad unexperienced training
Franchises From Just $5,950 + GST
Why pay $20,000 – $75,000 for a services franchise when you can pay from just $5,950 + GST?
It's a bait to attract people

I Had an terrible experience from ...Express world wide ( express business group) NZ I paid went for training Promised 6 to 10 leads per week I called them they said you can terminate by paying 50% of franchise fee ( 3800$) Terrible experience
