Hi all ok this is my first potential big contract!

I have been asked to do three blocks of flats 2 houses and 2 bungalows.

Block 1 has around 85-100 windows average size most about 3ft 5ft

Block 2 very similar but about 60 windows of same size

Block 3 has around 20-30 windows again about the same size

I roughly know what i will charge on bungalows etc but could do with some real help on the blocks of flats.

I have added a pic of one the front of the biggest block the back is the same each of the sides of the block has about 9 of the smaller windows and 3 of the 3 pain windows.

What sort of prices would you guys be charging?

Prices for the biggest (pictured) block is fine or if you like a price on whole job?

I know it is hard to say but my first big contract that i could really do with now so want to make sure i get it right.

Oh it is monthly clean and will be a 12 monthly contract.

Any suggestions about contracts etc welcome not had one before no idea of the formalities etc.

Oh another thing is i will have to get a new pole if i get this job as my slx 25 is not high enough i need like another 5-10ft can i just get another bigger section to go on bottom to add that or will i need new pole.

I know it is a bit of an ask but need to get back to them ASAP and don't want to royally F the price up, i know roughly what i would charge but wanted to know what you guys would say to see if i am about right.

Thanks in advance:)

I think on a monthly clean is probably about right,probably could get it done in a day and a half as really compact work with little driving and setting up required,Get a tight contract signed with them and you could be laughing

Sorry should have said I am wfp.

So you charged 500 for 300 windows ADE
yes mate wasnt just normal window though they were alot of french doors and and big pains of glass plus i cleaned all plastics aswell took me 2 and a half days there were very happy with it said its the best clean theyv had in 5 years.

im on ladder as well:)

if i was you i think your price is ok as its nice you have that every month no point been to greedy as you mite lose out if i know someone wants my services either garden or windows on a regular basis i keep the price not cheap but just right because i know its regular good money every week/month;)

if its going to be a 1 off i bump up the price and hope they say yes.its just business.

Ring back, a mate of mine waited a year for a job while they sorted out their 'expenses'.

Got the job last month.

But keep at them.

I was tempted to ring back in a couple of weeks and drop the price slightly but thought it would be a bad move and look desperate, but think i will get in contact again soon.

Just a follow call to see were their at,wouldn't drop the price unless you wasn't confident you were giving the best price.
