    Hello mate, for some reason I can reply to your message??

    Speak to Ben at Rutland pumps. I'm over the moon with mine just wish I had some more pressure washing now lol. It will come in time, most people that have booked in with me have asked for it to be done just before the summer.

    You cant go too wrong setting a floor at £1 per square meter (i.e. don't charge less) for cleaning and an additional 50p each for hypo / resanding on the cheaper side. or double that for nicer or more difficult jobs where you will need to take your time to get it done right because the drainage might be bad or there is a lot of muck on it.

    I am aiming at £50/hour I am on the job and usually end up between £40-50 / hour less my expenses/ travel/ fuel etc. I always give quotes as opposed to estimates and I will tell the customer "I expect this £200 job to take me 4-5 hours. If it takes more time that is my problem not yours." A lot of the time I see them smirk and think to themselves "yeah right that took me 2 days last time I did it". I turn up with my washer 200 bar @ 30lpm and do it in just under 4 hours from arrival to ready to leave.
