    I dunno what it is but at the start of every new year i go back i have people asking me "what do we owe you" and when i give them the same price as it was last year they go "oh i thought it would have gone up". in my eyes its a tad strange or are people just asuming because petrol prices rise there house window clean rises.

    i have had a few people up there own prices

    Petrol up 10p per litre round here in just a month.

    That's an extra £8 per tank full.

    I have got all my prices in line now and will have an annual increase moving forward of 50p per year.

    The plan to sell is for sure. Just not sure if spring 2017 or hold on a couple more years.

    Thinking if I am selling up though sooner is better as in even just 5 years from now the ammount of window cleaners out there could be madness and this may well push round prices down.

    Just a thought.

    Diesel going up, public liabilities gone up, governments stolen half my pension, kids getting bigger and eating more (wife's definitely eating more)...got to keep pushing the rises or things will go backwards.
