    Just had one of my clients contact me regarding changing her 4 weekly service to a quarterly sevrive.

    I charge her £9 for a 4 weekly and I said to her a quarterly service will be £18 she nearly dropped down dead.

    Some customers are ******** stupid does she really think im going to turn up once every 12 weeks for £9 pounds.

    Shes in the bin and she will never get back on my round.

    They think cleaning windows is just cleaning windows. I don't charge more the less I do them.

    You should do, whats the point in turning up every three months to clean windows for £9 pounds a complete waste of time.

    I charge 0.75 pence per window( as a rough guide) on a 4 weekly clean then if the want it 8 weekly i half the 4 weekly price and add it to the 4 weekly price for an 8 weekly clean.

    E.G £7 4 weekly, £7 Divided 2 = 3.5 so £7 + £3.5 = £10.50 fo an 8 weekly clean.

    If they want it quarterly i charge double the 4 weekly price.

    For me personally why would you bother messing around with client that have a value of £36 per year, not worth the hassle just find another client.

    I do a few in the street, she tells the neighbor he does mine 3 monthyl for £9, before you know the neighbour has changed to a three monthly for £9.

    I dont want those type of clients.
