    Maybe worth asking how much they are paying someone to clean their windows first. That way will give you an idea if it's worth the hassle of putting in a quote or not as some go as low as 40-50p a frame. Best bet is to work out how long you think it would take you and hourly rate you want out of it plus add any other expenses incurred.



    Good luck with the quote.

    You need to set yourself an hourly rate you want e.g £30. Then judge how long it will take you and round that up to the nearest hour. That's what I do anyway

    U cant ask anyone on here cos we all have different prices mate

    Look at the job and work out how long it will take u :) then price it up per how much u want to earn an hour

    Go the lowest price u can :) dont go in at a daft price make sure its good business for u and good business for the client cos one commercial can lead to other commercials
