What Would You Charge



Recommended Posts

evo343

Went to quote this job this morning, my first 'big' job. Been thinking all day that i may have underquoted, but really wanted the job as im new to this so there is a fine line between pricing it high enough but not too high as to miss out on it. Anyway im happy with the price we agreed but she agreed a bit too quick so could probably have gone higher.

 

The job is, empty gutters front and back, clean gutters and fascia front and back, and do windows inc conservatory. Just interested to see what you guys would have got from it.

£25 house and Conny (not roof)

 

£50 gutters

 

£50 fascias and gutters

 

I don't think you'd keep it long if you were to charge £40 a month for the glass.

£40 is just for a one off. Not a regular job.

 

Guessing this is just a one off due to amount of work wanted to be done.

Looks like im about on the money then. Thats good to know, some of you have gone higher and some lower so thats cheered me up. Im down in the west of wales where everybody wants something fof nothing! I couldnt get away with charging as much as people do in larger towns and cities.

Yeah she didnt know wether she wants them done regularly so ive priced the windows as a one off. I guess she is waiting to see the results before deciding if im going back! If she wants windows done regularly ill drop it to 25 quid, theres a window above the garage aswell that you cant see in the picture. But yeah im happy with the price.

Charge what you feel comfortable with mate in time and with effort,experience you can walk away.

Aim to be the best in your area and you won't go wrong and stay top of game.

Yep. I'd get the ladders off to check the sills though. Just to make sure they ain't green. Nearly been caught out before on that.

For me a deep clean job like that would take approx 6-8 hours to do properly. That's including a few tea breaks and chatting to the customer.

Mind you I am old so take my time :Image13: .

 

How long will it take you? WFP?

Nope as they pay for a quality job. Simples...

 

Put it this way I think many sell themselves rather short.

 

Also if you must know Tuffers when I gave them the price they said it was very reasonable. Go figure….

Maybe you should have offered to rent out your ladder to them for 40 squid so she could risk her own neck trying to clear & clean her own guttering. :Image13:
