Pricing Increase

Recommended Posts

Doo

Done my least fav run tues/wed this week told all custys that as of next month I'm adding a £1 to the cleans all seemed fine with it :biggrin:

I was a bit concerned as this was the first time I had done this but it has given me confidence to do it with my other runs in the future .

 

Is £1 the normal increase most guys use ?

1 pound is about right any less and not worth increasing. Trouble with my round some could do with being 3 or 4 pound more but don't think they would take that but they were priced badly when I bought round.

Yeah I do £1 to(that's if I put price up)

 

I know window cleaners ask for 50p increase, and most custies are fine but am not gonna bother with 50ps only time I get 50ps is when people pay me 6 quid with pound coins and 50ps lol

50P is about right, or 4-5% once you get over ten quid. The thing I've found out with price increases is that you've got to be prepared to lose the customer, if you're OK with that then go ahead.

if your not putting them up all the time i"m sure customers dont mind the increase

yeh your right you could also loose them i"d rather take the gamble and put them up than them being under priced

Everything increases in price, so it costs more to live hence why price increase is part and parcel of running your business.

 

If you loose a customer or two so what your price increase will more than cover them & who needs customers like that anyway .
