    As above chaps,

    These two hotels are adjacent and wanting cleaned.. Regularity will depend on quote they say.

    First hotel is much bigger and has around 45 rooms, and as shown in pic some third tier work involved.

    Second hotel has lots of glass two, and a heavily glassed health suite but easier access by look of it tonight.

    Can you please help me price this as it's much bigger than anything I'm used to,timewise how long may it take doing Trad as well? DSC_0433.JPG DSC_0434.JPG DSC_0431.JPG DSC_0437.JPG DSC_0438.JPG DSC_0440.JPG DSC_0441.JPG

    I'd price them both at half a leisurely day each, so a total of a day. You going to do the 3rd storey off a ladder?

    Was going to use backpack for the ones that have a lip below them (third story fronts of hotel one)

    I'm not sure I'm fast enough to do that all in a day,maybe I would.

    chances are they want the ground floor doing often and the upper floors less often. id want 50 notes for the ground floor [each] and a price that was enuf to make me smile every time for the uppers. that one with georgian windows could be a goldmine [altho hard work] id go in at 100 for the upper floors ,150 total theyll hav a job to get it done trad much less than that .

    id do each hotel on a seperate week

    Go for it. If you get them both you're probably too cheap, if you lose both you're too expensive, if you get one you're pricing is about right. It's all experience in the bag whatever the outcome.
