    Yep had this convo with a customer today.

    She wanted tops done only i said £10 but i said you will get stitched up with that. House would only be £12

    Obviously she went with the £12.

    Most of our houses are £10 minimum now, but in my area two companies operate at £15 and £16 minimum.

    [SIZE=medium]Yes of course, lots do, it’s because we have a cost to operate the business. Factor on top of that what you want as profit and go from there.[/SIZE]
