    £8 is the cheapest I have, but its not worth any more then that so its fine. £10 is pretty much my new limit now though.

    only just....its £10 because some of the new jobs were not worth the effort by the time you park up get your stuff out etc....i have one at the mo and i said £8 and then remembered my minimum charge and so changed it to £10....without seeing it...when i saw it...i put it up to £15.....if she leaves it much longer i have altered now to a double charge first time.....so she had better hurry...

    I can't see how ppl make any decent money at window cleaning if they do it too cheap myself.

    Houses £10, but that is a small 2 bed house, small flats/bungalows £8, usually a house is £12 though.

    You have a cost figure each year, and you will do so many cleans per year. So you will have a minimum figure, even if you don’t know what it is

    You could start by dividing the number of expected cleans into your cost. I.e. £6,000 in cost divided into 2400 cleans gives you £2.50

    Including your living cost; i.e. £12,000 divided into 2400 gives you £5.

    Add your two figures together whatever they will be, and then put a profit margin in for your efforts.

    If you are working your prices, you will very rarely use the minimum price, as it’s a base figure. It’s only used when you get those small jobs. You tend to work from your average price and move forwards from that figure.
