    Been asked to clean the inside windows of a regular customer, I have no idea what to charge him, for the outside I charge him £20, he has 18 windows. Any addvice would be great thanks.

    I have the same problem with pricing insides up, i use wfp on the outside, the way i look at it, if I charge £20 for outside, I would look around £10 for inside but thats just me!

    My pricing structure includes a small starter charge if you like to account for setup time, but bar that which the customer only pays once, I charge the same for the outsides as I do the insides. I am trad. So if its £10 for the outsides, its £20 for in and out, plus the starter charge.

    Insides aren't always quicker to do, as some times you have to remove blinds etc, and you also have to take extra care when working in someone's property. Removing ornaments from sills etc, shifting sofas in some cases.

    I always find the insides a lot quicker to do than outsides! no up down ladders for one! I always ask the customer to take anything off the cills, that way i dont have to worry about breaking anything!!

    If it was a regular customer of mine and I charged them £20 for outside I'd charge them double just, £40

    If its new or recently got or people I'm not really fussed about I'd ask for double and a half, £50

    Insides are like first cleans and if they are smokers or have pets or kids the windows will be stinking..

    I also charge the same inside as outside same amount of windows and no use of ladders just one room to another so why charge more, I get the customer to clear the window sills as I'm doing outside so all ready to go
