    I dont think you'ed be far wrong with £40-remember its a business expense for them therefor tax deductible.

    ok dan, first of all think about how much work you will get doing this job, do good job being friendly you will pick up loads of work just with doing this single job. also do it before 8.am and its bonus to your daily income.
    my price I would be happy with £15 tops I,m sure you would pick up loads of work with only doing costa gd luck

    I used to to blockbusters with a couple more windows like that for £35 a week and got the manager to get a receipt book so he could take the cash out the till and put the receipt in it's place

    Ooh, I'd like to do the insides of the estate agent opposite, not :whistle:

    Plus is parking going to be a factor? Double yellows all over the shop. £30 including tackling snot left by kids on the insides, plus a coffee to go :thumbsup:

    I'm finding full monty cleans are the way forward at the moment (when I have spare time to do them).

    Ok, after thinking about the exposure and the fact its a weekly job I reckon £30-35may be the way to go.

    £25 because I wouldn't need a ladder or pole. Hang on do they want the sign done too?
