    Yes I think you've been nice there lol.
    I'm based in north east too. I've realised with these sort of jobs defiantly need to priced correctly.
    When I say correctly, I mean say for example it takes you hour and half, Could you make more doing your regular window cleans in this time? Also it's very short notice.
    I think i would of said £100maybe more. I try see all kind of these jobs so I know roughly how long it would take us.

    Problem you have when asking for opinions on pricing is we're all from different parts of the country and pricing varies greatly. Hopefully you'll get some replies from other windies near you.

    It actually only varies based on one factor..... mentality of the window cleaner.

    'Oh I live up north so I cant charge what they get down south' well that's total toss.

    2 years ago my average 'per house' price was £7.80, Today it's £15.20. More than double.

    I did the same as everyone. Price low stack high thinking that's good business sense, I avoided posh houses thinking 'ooh they wont have me' and basically mentally undervalued myself in a big way.

    Only issue was a lack of confidence in what I was selling which ultimatley was me. Also I was rather skint and priced on something being better than nothing.

    Now the money is in the bank and business is booming and I only hit affluent areas when looking for more work, i dont even entertain council estates any more.

    We have been looking at relocating back to south London and have asked friends there how much they pay their window cleaners and in 6 of 7 cases it was less than I would charge and also some jobs the southern lads have posted on here are well below my rates so just shows that the whole 'ohh down south pays more' mentality is nonsense / myth. (With the exception of London proper)

    As always though, just my personal observations and opinions.
