    Would 50p a pane of glass be taking pricing too far .
    Not including gorgian windows or leaded

    Some panes you can get on properties are very large so I don't see how 50p would be enough on those.

    I can't see why it would ever be helpfull to charge per window pane - you have to charge for each job on it's own merit -as a total job not per window

    I wasn't talking about forms smurf just a basic pricing system .
    I know the US cleaners have a different way of making there quote .
    The whole point of was for instance a basic style house were they have side opener each size and a pane in the middle doing the panes at 50p each .
    I know there maybe other factors involved were it could be a larger single pain of glass .
    Just because I have heard different pricing of cleaners in the UK .
    I wouldn't want to go through all that paper work the American cleaners do .

    Think number of windows is a pointless way to price, most custies get wrong how many windows they have when you ask them over phone/online anyway, and if youre there quoting in person its much better to price on type of window, access, how close it is to other work etc.

    Pointless way to price.

    POINTLESS.
