    I would use some scaffold planks along the side next to the wall to spread your weight on the supports as you move along.

    Rest ladders on the end of the conny and climb up
    Use pole from the end to do that side

    Whatever the charge is for the conservatory clean (only you can decide how much that is) plus the rental if you want a conny ladder rented plus about £10 each way to collect it and drop it off.

    Cant really see to advise from them pics, i usually just manage with a combination of ladders, step ladders and wfp. If you can get to the roof line you can clean it, but i much prefer doing by hand where poss.

    As for charge, well thats up to you, my first conny i did for £30, my last one was 100 and ive one booked next week for 120. So it depends where you are in your business. you could always come down in price if needs be, ive dont it a few times quoted higher then dropped my price but only because i need the work.

    I always think its better to quote a price you would really like and be happy whilst doing the job and take your time than quote a price where you think, eh ok i suppose ill do it for that and then be rushing to try and make your money and begrudge doing it.
