    I went to get a hair cut and the main man has known me for life... he always talks to me about my business etc :) He goes to me do u do conservatory cleaning i said yeah i specialise in that... He goes his roof is very dirty all green. I said to him...

    For your house with conservatory your looking at between £12.00 - £15.00

    But with the roof on top your looking at an extra.

    Then i said to him the roof will not need cleaning every month tough.. just once every 4/6 months mate. he said yeah i see.... He goes to me just do it for me i dont care what u charge me i trust u ... i go to him i got to see it first though :) Cos ive done the same before and regretted it..

    I said to him i dont want to rip u off or rip myself off and just want to be fair :) He totally understood and was happy :)

    He said to me he doesnt like strangers working on his house or anything he goes i know all tradesmen who come in here for a haircut i always get them to do my work for me... i never look in yellow pages

    Lol

    So im goign to go round his house and quote him..


    Im thinking of charging him £15.00 for normal house :) or maybe £12.00 if theirs not many windows.

    Also for the roof.... im thinking of charging an extra £10.00 :)

    what do you all think :)

    And im up north remember :)

    A conservatory house normally down here is average 12 pound :)

    I myself charge between £30 to £40 for cleaning the roof.

    Spray virosol on the roof then clean down with water(you can use pure water too but I think its a waste)

    Yep, sounds ok for the house. But nothing less than £20 for the roof. It's a specialist clean and always takes longer than you think. Use Virosol or you'll be there all day.

    I priced his house up £20.00 including his conservatory :) (without the roof)

    I added an extra £10.00 for his conny roof - i should of done it for 20 quid ! but its still a good price because i know hes goign to be a good regular customer

    So £30.00 in total... after that im goign to do his windows etc for £20.00 per month :)

    It should take me half an hour to do all his normal windows

    and 60-90 minutes to clean the conservatory :)

    Its like £18.00 for the full conservatory but really i t should be £25.00 ! :| but nevermind next time i will be with it :p

    But from now on am goign to charge £25.00 for conservatories :)

    Still worth it for me :)

    extra 20 quid per month :)

    On any job i always think, at the end of the day cash is cash..... what is my time worth....

    I try as much as possible to keep all pricing the same or you will end up not liking certain jobs becuase they dont earn as much....

    At times you will have to prioritise and i always make sure i look after the customers who are worth the most to me.... so as such I dont fluctuate pricing as really..... they should all be important,

    But you do right to be getting the work in. Good on ya pal!!
