    Well I don't normally do mates rates to be honest but went to quote a job earlier only to find it was an x work colleagues son I knew when he was a wee boy. Anyway after a long chat going over old times for some unknown reason when giving the price on his 4 bed detach external house clean including the usual gutters in/out soffit, fascia, conservatory, windows and driveway clean I said " that's a mates rates price". Doh! to be honest I don't why I said it but at least I did not reduce the price by much.


    Maybe I'm just losing my marbles :Image3:
