    Pricing driveways

    Pricing is always better in a more bespoke fashion. No two 100 square metre drives will be the same, one can have a great run off, water supply and access the other may slope down towards the garage door (poor drainage) and have a poor water pressure...and maybe much more lichen to deal with. Drive two may take twice as long to clean or longer even though it's the same dimensions as drive 1. Always price drives on overall time estimates or get burnt.

    Pricing driveways

    In Fife an average drive wouldn't be anywhere near that, like a two car drive. People always lie about what they earn, I could get ten emails through my website ( people that specifically look me up) and if I asked for even 300 to wash only a 2 car drive I would get maybe 1 or 2 max to the point of sale. This market is diluted by Facebook buy and sell cheap boys now, you can make a decent hourly rate up here on them but there is 100% not a goldmine there unless you had a website that was massive and offered various add ons..AND ranked highly for all cities.

    Best gutter vac at the moment?

    Had the pro gutter tools out today. Handy they are for sure..these gutter inner shaped ends (for anyone who hasn't seen the pro gutter tools) are put on a Harris pole. So today I just pulled the whole lot along the back of that conservatory. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    What pressure washer?

    Honda gx 390 21 litre a min. Also good to use a fsc with down the line if you choose and gets lots of water down for rinsing off Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app The gx390 would be more than ample to be honest on par with this and like less than half the price Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Help with price

    It's going to average an hour at the very least on each I reckon, and that's ones with like barely any dirt on the exterior. If you don't have them and get this contract; do yourself a favour and Google pro gutter tools buy them and a Harris pole. The longer the better. So price wise I would always target 40 an hour min on commercial but maybe you'll want to go in around 30 quid ph since it's so substantial in overall worth? You could easy do ten or more of them in a longish day if they are close by to each other and consider getting paid help too. If you get a helper you can lower the bid, pay a wage, get another half the work done per day min and still be in decent profit. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Help with price

    Hard to suggest anything based on minimal info. Are they front and backs of larger houses? How long do you think each will take? How much do you want to make per hour? These are the starting points to consider not what they tell you they want to pay, YOU choose and if they say yes that's good and if not so what.... Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Pricing driveways

    Fsc handy for small patios in my opinion, less risk of turbo marks *left when you judder over some bits and maybe go right over others correctly. If your using hypo less risk of this anyway and a turbo is fine, I use a twin headed one just to get a lot of water down and I often rinse off with it too..from a distance. Funny enough the single turbo doesn't kick out twice the pressure of the duel turbo I notice, but perhaps has a bit more pressure. Some guys fsc then turbo local to me, personally that's a lot of lost time I think. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Pricing driveways

    Sensible priced and so nt forget if your new to it be prepared to go a bit cheaper to start with, it's handy for the experience and so you get before and after photos. Short term more success at quote long term better rep...and up prices. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
