    Hi there,

    I was talking to a customer, who recently got her front garden (which is slabbed over) jet washed, (NOT her driveway)

    She had two quotes for it, one at £120 and another at £150.

    IF thats the going rate then I thought I could do this as an add on to the business.

    I thought about getting a petrol jet washer at £250, this is a better make and more powerfull one then a £400 petrol Karcher jetwasher.

    Anyway do anyone else offer this service??

    I mean I wouldnt mind charging someone £80 to £100 for a drivway if thats the going rate lol. even doing it on a sat morning or something lol.

    Honda petrol washers are a good job if you have around £600-700 to spend

    If your serious about it invest in a good pressure washer. You want a washer with a flow rate of at least 10 litres per min and at least 2500 psi. You also get a turbo nozzle that fits on the end of the lance. (gun) The more powerful the machine the quicker you can get the job done.

    The prices stated are about right for a drive, im about 80 - 120 for a driveway, also do paths, steps, decking etc. Prices start from 30.

    I paid 650 for my washer which included 30 meters of premium hose and turbo nozzle + deivery.
