    You should work out what you would be happy with for the amount of time it takes and charge that
    eg. A 4 hour job needs to pay at least what 4 hours on the glass would
    All my family are on the south coast and they can afford a decent price round that way..

    The cheek of it :mad:

    A rule of thumb, well my thumb. £1 per bracket to bracket on a gutter, so if it's S/F/G then £3 bracket to bracket on the gutter, plus a bit more if the price doesn't add up to a fair whack :)

    Have you thought about buying a backpack daveyboy1, filling it with tap water and using a pole and chems. Don't know if you've done any with a conny in the way, but it makes life easier :thumbsup:

    Wouldn't £1 per metre be hardly anything? I prefer daveys method, guess the amount of time/earning required, add a bit on incase.

    For above example I'd prob say £120 - £150
