    I have a small commercial job to quote. I don't usually bother with this as it can be a pain but can be a good earner?

    The job is approx 50m. Just two story, 3 sides, large square alloy gutters. It will need a generator which I have. I will probably look to do it on a Saturday just to avoid people and traffic as it's mainly around a car park and the drive. I reckon I could do it in an hour but don't want to undersell myself as i'm new to commercial stuff....

    Well depending how bad it was I would want at least £300 for that one to make it worth my while.

    I was going to take a punt at £200. I've already had a look with the camera, it's not bad at all

    I would go in higher if it was me as the ones you think are going to be easy are generally the ones that turn out pigs to do.

    3 quid a metre would be reasonable for a residential iob so would be 150
    Commercial you bump it up as they will claim it back on tax so go for it mate

    Plus the generator which I used to hire in. Just got a bargain recently for a brand new 5kva loncin, only £300. This will help pay for it if I get it.....

    Whatever you personally want to earn for a days work is what you should charge
    We all have our own ideas on price but if you had that 1 job for a day and would be happy with 200 for a day then that's what you charge if you get my point
