My Gutter Cleaning Campain



Recommended Posts

Belfastcleaning

One of my first jobs when starting out using a gutervac was a back to back house with one gutter run of apprrox 6m hence why I mention price from £25!* (price subject to property size & site survey).

 

Since then I have learnt that it doesn't really matter how little guttering there is on a property as all jobs are different and some are more difficult to clear than others. Some badly blocked guttering & downspouts I've found quicker to do by hand which is dangerous work that not many would want to do themselves. Hence why I charge accordingly but have kept £25!* (price subject to property size & site survey) on my site as a hook if that makes any sense.

 

Great if you get work booked in close together ie shared gutter runs etc but also need to price in time for the quote also fuel costs etc that can soon mount up.

 

At the end of the day it's up to you what you decide to charge but for me I want to take on profitable work for my troubles. Simples...

 

Hope this helps?

LOL...

 

Lol...

 

Still laughing....

Now this awkward one I qouted over the phone last week and got a call this morning saying they would like to go ahead. Obviously they have tried to get other quotes but for some strange reason have chosen me. Oh Deep joy :Image16:

That's Just to clear the guttering so how much would you charge then smarty pants belfast that is if you could do the job at all?

So you state from* £25 after survey and inspection? Yet you quoted over the phone?

 

I cannot give a price as I cannot see the rear of the property.. And travel costs would be approx £100 for the boat and prob £100 for fuel.. So there's at least £200..

 

How much are you charging ? £1,000,000?

I'd be going in at £100 for that (if it was all blocked) maybe I'm just lucky but round my way people appreciate that it's a dangerous job when doing by hand and pay well to have it done

Smurf Just because you are older does not give you the right to knock everyone's prices ! you have a very narrow minded opinion on everything and its your way or the highway on everything window cleaning related, im not sure who you quite think you are because in my opinion you are an old man who charges ridiculous prices that would quite frankly not last in most areas plus at your age if you was all that great of a success you would have a few vans out out earning you £££ like my dad at his ripe old age, instead of climbing ladders and sitting on a forum at 60 years of age Simples :Image7:

I respect Smurf a lot on here.

He provides a quality service and charges accordingly, I do lots of similar work and its ball breaking at times.

If his prices for his services are wrong then he would have no work.

I find the fella nothing but helpful.....Simples!

I to think that Smurf posts a lot that others would find helpful, and don't think his prices are too high at all. He doesn't hold a gun to anyone's head telling them they've got to pay it, he does a quality job and charges accordingly. I think there's one or two complete helmets on here that cry over the fact that they can't earn what he does. Melts
