    Got 2 big jobs to price up :) need a cherry picker for both 1 job is every week and the other is every month

    Cherry picker is £480.00 including VAT with an IPAF Operative
    Im going to use my backpack on the platform but may be able to take my hose up their.

    Going to charge £600.00 for the weekly job - should only take me a few hours

    And going to charge £650.00 for the monthly job

    Just need to do the risk assessment and method statement and then wish myself good luck :)

    sounds good :) will you be able to use the cherry picker for both jobs in a day? so for the job once a month you will be able to at the same time as the weekly one, and make crazy money ;)

    £770 if you can do both in a day

    that all sounds great and would be a huge boost to your turnover if you get the contract. i dont think your price will be competitive enough with the cherry picker hire and operators costs as you might come up against bigger companys that are trained to operate these hoists themselves and some have their own cherry pickers . hopefully im wrong and you get lucky , if you do get it consider getting trained up yourself to operate the cherry picker and youll make thousands a year more , all the best little h :p :D

    You should get trained and buy one

    masons.... this building is the pier on a seafront mate ... hes the photo mate

    I got no choice mate but to chage that much mate... it cant be done without a cherry picker... and its the council who are going to pay for it anyway

    this photo is the main attraction to the town aswell :)

    pier.jpg

    plus the other building that needs cleaning every month is this:

    the hub.jpg

    To be honest.... the price is pretty cheap conisdering the amount of time and effort am going to put in to it mate

    No way can they get to these without a cherry picker.... they gotta pay the cost for it to be cleaned mate... cos to be honest its impossible to do it without a cherry picker... on a main road... and the first photo is just awkward with them metal things wrapped around lol
