    Right was wondering what you guys would have done !
    Went and priced a large house in the country with a very large two storey garage ,gutters cleared and all PVC and windows cleaned .
    Priced it up 2 men 2 days but when I got stuck into it we got finished on the same day .
    Charged the same money as excepted by the customer when I priced it .
    Right or wrong ????????

    Right :) some you win some you loose. They wouldn't pay extra if it took you 3 days!

    totally right...just wish i could do that more often...its usually the other way with me...the custy realises i have underpriced and some bless them pay me a bit extra...pricing is a minefield....which is why i not so keen on new jobs...:)

    Did you tell them it was going to take 2 days? If you did and there is a chance of on-going work at the house I'd offer some discount. If it's a one off, take the money and run :whistle:

    If you priced the job and they accepted the quote and we're happy with the work.....then no issue.
