Another "how much would you charge for this" thread!

Recommended Posts

Hi all, just been asked to go and price a house for regular (2 weekly she says!) Windows cleaning. It's a new build, I'm going to see it tomorrow. Drive past it today and it's an little bit larger than my usual customers!!

 

How much would you charge for a first and then a regular clean - obviously we are going to have to guess the back but huge bi folding doors is my best guess and at least as much glass as the front!

I would go in at £30.00 but can't see the back and the other side so just doubling what I can see.

First clean at £45.00.

Also around the £30 mark, 4 weekly or 8 weekly.

 

Customer will probably expect it done for £6.00.

Ninety % of my round are houses like this. I would charge around £40 for that, but I do live and work in an expensive part of the country, so might be a bit cheaper tup north :)

I do find it hard with pricing single panes and have relised lately that I'm very much under pricing bays.

It's a lerning curve but getting better at it.

Do hate that feeling when you get half way around a job and realising you made a huge mistake lol

Don't price by panes. Walk around the property imagining that you are cleaning it. So, 2 mins for that, 3 min for that etc. Add it up, multiply by your hourly rate, add a bit more if the ladder has to come off, job done

Well I was thinking £30 - £40 a clean, I've got one smaller at £25 4 weekly. Looks like I'm probably not a million miles away price wise. They probably will be expecting it for £6 though! :-) thanks for the replies!

I think £30 seems about right, no more that 6-8 weeks though. £40 for 12week, but the two weekly will be forgotten about soon as she realises it's not practical

I'd be looking at around £35 but it all depends on where you are I guess

Perhaps.... but it isn't worth anymore.

 

Charging over the odds cause you can will come back and bite you.

 

I think you did right at £30.

Allways good to bag extra regular work this time of the year I find that new calls for a window cleaner slow down

I'd have said £20 just for what I can see there - so probably £35-40 for the whole house. Bit surprised a couple of people suggested £20 for the whole house.
