    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
