    had a customer text to say they want to cancel as someone has been round and said they would do it cheaper... just out of curiosity i asked how much they charge .

    (i charge £8 and said they could have it 4 wkly 0r 8 wkly , they wanted it cleaned every three months i never usually go past 8 weeks but thought sod it i got quite a few around their so said ok i will do it for 12 pound every 3 months as i charge extra over 8 weeks. and obviously it would take more cleaning so wanted more money for extra time spent their. )


    any way she said the guy charges £8. i said i charge £8 .. 4 weekly or 8 weekly . she said hes doing it every 3 month for £8 .
    i text back saying ill leave him to it then my prices go up after 8 weeks.

    basically customer not worth it as will just go cheaper everytime , wait till someone says i will do it for 7 quid

    not had them that long . i dont want the work that bad enough to clean a house for 8 quid every 3 months aint worth it .

    if customers dont stay with me for someone else saying they will do it cheaper they aint worth having imo.

    Depends on area. If a quiet suburb it likely won't be any longer to clean after 3 months plus, busy road is a different story

    Ditch them. £10/12 min for us that's 5 weeks.

    busy area , still building. every time i go their for regular 4 weekly ones they are always filthy and its like doing a new clean every time on them . so that one for 3 monthly at 8 quid would not be worth it for me . so u can imagine how dirty that one is

    Great if you can get that Damo but some window cleaners can struggle to get quality work with so much compatition about.

    Many compact local rounds near me have been built and priced so very competitive over the years but those cleaners can still earn a good living at it if they graft.

    Put in a min price just before coming on these forums.

    Bedfordshire is very affluent
