    Decided no more one off's. You just cannot get the money you want.

    Even at double bubble you loose out on WFP. Trad is a lot quicker on one off's but I don't want to do em.

    So from 2016. No more one off's

    Just talking about window cleaning mind.

    Don't mind them now,

    £40 minimum charge, if they say that's too expensive then I haven't missed out.

    We have £25 min charge but it's not enough. £40 sounds better. But the job would need to be under an hour. With a tea break. But TBH. Not doing em now.

    Same as Jake. I quote a straight £40 when asked for a one off. They say 'I'll get back to you' so now just waiting for the mad rush of them all getting back to me :rolleyes:

    Quoted one guy £40 he says 'I was thinking more like £20'
    I replied 'well you weren't thinking of using me then!'

    That ended the conversation.:sad:

    I get the odd one at £40, but not that many, which suits me,


    But I will happily charge £50 for a 4 bed detached, £40 is the min though, no matter how small.

    It's steep, so people will generally say no, but when they say yes, I rub my hands together and adorn a wry smile :D

    I usually say between 20-30, but in the run up to christmas I think I'll be going to 40 now as I can't be arsed with one offs either at the moment.

    Doesn't always take an hour, could be 20 mins, £40 minimum, no matter how small ;)

    I don't need them nor want them, so I charge a high price, then, if I get it, it's happy days!!!
