    Just tell them it has been (x amount of years) since your prices have gone up and they need to go up now to keep you in line with the higher cost of living and the need to be competitive
    Any reasonable customer would understand

    How do you let them know how much to pay then Jonny?

    Most of mine pay online so are used to paying exactly the same as last month

    However i do have the odd really nice customer like this who appreciates my work and she asks every time

    "Hi, just paid £15 on PayPal, please let me know if price has changed. Many thanks Caren"

    one of ours as moved so I met her today for a priceing this is the first time ive ever seen her and we have been cleaning her windows 5 years ! 40% we have never seen in years ! so I thought a nice letter would be better then just a card with a higher price on

    I couldn't be bothered with the hassle of a 20p price increase. Just put mine up £1 a house from last October but that has been my first increase since I started in 2004. Earning enough to pay for my life so I don't feel the need to keep going higher year on year.

    I have a draft from mine last year somewhere. I'll find the letter when I get home.
