    Now I'd charge 6 but have 3 almost same that are altogether, I do em trad and had them since I started. I do those for a fiver but all 3 inside 30 minutes.

    I wouldn't get more than £6 around these parts for those.

    Hi Sharon,
    Small jobs like the one in the photo’s, can get awkward to price as your round ‘grows’.

    Having 4 together does help, but I think I would charge £10, that’s probably going to be expensive for a lot of people. So I would recommend to the customer to have them cleaned every 8 weeks, at the same time explaining the average cost to them is about £5 a month and that they might find it expensive to have 6 frames with 11 windows cleaned more frequently. It would be up to them to decide the frequency, I just recommend.

    If I was pricing it I'd go 6 or 7, but it'd be money for old rope at a fiver, wouldn't be that upset at 4. Cakewalk stuff

    Would it be really worth doing for £4 chip! If you do 200 cleans per month and your expanses are £5k a year it’s going to cost you on average just over £2 to do each clean, so it becomes less than a £2 job! you will have to do several of those per hour just to keep you at the minimum wage.

    Whatever price you do it for, always account for £2-3 pounds for cost, until you go into 1 full hour working then you can account for any work by your hourly cost.
