    Hi All,
    Back from living and window cleaning in Australia.....
    Quiet different here in the UK for pricing, would appreciate any advice on pricing the cleaning of conservatory roofs?
    Also been asked to price a commercial shop front, large glass window about 5mts inside and out?


    Many thanks John

    Welcome johneastmids :thumbsup:. Average conny roof 1 to 2 hours max, charge your hourly rate at 2 hours and you'll be ok. When you get the hang of conny roofs you can then price more than your hourly rate. They are an add on for me, so I charge more than I would for normal window cleaning.

    DIARY OF A POMMIE IN AUSTRALIA


    August 31

    Just got to NSW Australia .
    Now this is a town that knows how to live!
    Beautiful, sunny days and warm, balmy evenings.
    I watched the sunset from a deckchair by our pool yesterday.
    It was beautiful.
    I've finally found my new home.
    I love it here.

    September 13

    Really heating up now.
    It got to 31 today.
    No problem though.
    Living in air-conditioned home, driving air-conditioned car.
    What a pleasure to see the sun every day like this.
    I'm turning into a sun-worshipper - no blasted rain like back in Brum !!

    September 30

    Had the back yard landscaped with tropical plants today.
    Lots of palms and rocks.
    No more mowing lawns for me!
    Another scorcher today, but I love it here.
    It's Paradise !

    October 10

    The temperature hasn't been below 35 all week.
    How do people get used to this kind of heat?
    At least today it's windy though.
    Keeps the flies off a bit..
    Acclimatizing is taking longer than we expected.

    October 15

    Fell asleep by the pool yesterday.
    Got third degree burns over 60% of my body.
    Missed three days off work.
    What a dumb thing to do..
    Got to respect the old sun in a climate like this!


    October 25

    - This wind is a b*****d.
    It feels like a giant f*****g blow dryer.
    And it's hot as hell!
    The home air conditioner is on the blink and the repair man charged $200 just to drive over and tell me he needs to order parts from f*****g Perth .....The wife & the kids are complaining.

    October 30

    - The temperature's up around 40 and the parts still haven't arrived for the f*****g air conditioner.
    House is an oven so we've all been sleeping outside by the pool for 3 nights now.
    Bloody $600,000 house and we can't even go inside.
    Why the hell did I ever come here?

    November 4

    Finally got the f*****g air-conditioner fixed. It cost $1,500 and gets the temperature down to around 25 degrees, but the humidity makes it feel about 35.
    Stupid repairman.
    F*****g thief.

    November 8

    - If one more smart b*****d says 'Hot enough for you today?'
    I'm going to f*****g throttle him.
    F*****g heat!
    By the time I get to work, the car radiator is boiling over, my f*****g clothes are soaking f*****g wet and I smell like baked cat.
    F*****g place is the end of the Earth.

    November 9

    - Tried to run some errands after work, wore shorts, and sat on the black leather upholstery in my car.
    I thought my f*****g **** was on fire.
    I lost 2 layers of flesh, all the hair on the backs of my legs and off my f*****g ****.
    Now the car smells like burnt hair, fried **** and baked cat.
    F**k. F**k. F**k.

    November 10

    -- The Weather report might as well be a f*****g recording..
    Hot and sunny.
    Hot and sunny, Hot and f*****g sunny.
    It never f*****g changes!
    It's been too hot to do anything for 2 f*****g months and the weatherman says it might really warm up next week.
    F**k!

    November 15

    - Doesn't it ever rain in this damn f*****g place?
    Water restrictions will be next, so my $5,000 worth of palms might just dry up and blow into the f*****g pool.
    The only things that thrive in this hell-hole are the f*****g flies.
    You don't dare open your mouth for fear of swallowing half a dozen of the little b*****ds!

    November 20

    - Welcome to HELL!
    It got to 45 f****n' degrees today.
    Now the air conditioner gone in my car.
    The repair man came to fix it and said, 'Hot enough for you today?'
    I wanted to shove the f*****g car up his f*****g ****
    Anyway, had to spend the $2,500 mortgage payment to bail me out of jail for assaulting the stupid p***k.
    F*****g Australia
    What kind of sick, demented f*****g idiot would want to live here!

    December 1

    - WHAT!!!! The FIRST day of Summer!!!!
    You are f*****g kidding me!
