    I had a phone call today from the New Look shop in our local town to come in and give them a quote tomorrow. now as this my first commercial call I thought id ask you guys first. do you charge more for commercials because they can probably afford it, or quote lower on the basis that they will get quotes from a few windys and pick the lowest?

    they want it done fortnightly, its a pretty small shop, two windows at the front measuring 2 x 1.5m each max. and a double door inbetween the windows. im thinking about 12 to 15 quid fortnightly? or am I way off the mark for that?

    if its just outside you would be lucky to get that for it, there are a few store fronts that start from £5 around here!

    Can't see how's it's worth it, I bet you won't get many more. Some old bloke will do it for £4/£5 mate.

    That's a £6 shop

    so im looking at 5-8 quid then. for me its more about getting the job rather than getting a massive price, because im pretty sure the last windy to do this store did the whole street of shops, so could lead onto other jobs if I get it.

    this paddy power one in our town has a budget of £35 a month to clean it.

    it needs cleaning once a week on the outside and once a month on the inside!
