    Hi & welcome to the forum:thumbsup:

    I get phone calls asking for a price on the phone like that. So you can probably gather what I say :rolleyes:

    Take it you have been out to have a look at the job already so could you give a bit more info and even post some pics might help or a google street view of the school?

    Best have a look first on Monday (do a risk assessment), measure up and take loads of pics of all the school that needs doing to refer back to and post them on here. Don't forget to ask and get them to confirm what needs doing. Also don't forget to make a note of the type of materials that needs cleaning too.

    They will not expect a price, risk assessment and method statement there and then so make a note of the contact name and take his or her details to email it to them.

    If you are dealing with a contractor then personally I would not bother as they will expect you to do it for next to nothing.
