    image.jpeg How much would you charge for this ?
    I cleaned it today for £12 front only.
    Took me 45 minutes without ladder = happy customer and repeat booking

    FINEST could you please adjust the title of this thread as its not really clear/make sense in relation to the post. Thanks.

    When I was cleaning I would have probably charged £6-8

    Done. Wow 6-8£ isn't that a bargain ?
    How is it possible to build up a business having multiple vans and employees for such prices?

    Remember pricing is often dependent on area. I could possibly push that to £10 here in Cornwall. Saying that though I haven't been cleaning for some time now so who knows could maybe get more I cant imagine so though.

    Thanks for the edit

    Yeah you're right. Area is such a deal.
    Some people literary have no money for cleaning windows. From my canvassing experience I found out that if they can pay £7 they can also pay 12£. Those who are stuck with paying 5£ mostly just don't value the service and will stick with who ever charges least.
    I just love it when you quote £15 £ 12 or £10 and they agree..

    45 minutes to clean that is ridiculous, you would clean it in 5 off a ladder

    I am in Nottingham. I have a minimum of £12 just to turn up. My avarage job price is around £25.
    A house like that I would be £14 front only £20 front and back assuming no extensions or conservatory.
    How I clean it does not matter. I am being paid for clean windows not weather I use a WFP or ladder etc etc
