    ok still WFP is fine depends come in a tad higher at 5 or 6 quid if there not happy say ok how about 4 quid a flat bit of a night mare due the to people in the flats and balconys in it.

    also hard to price in for the cherry picker unless let the landlord sort that out and you just do you thing.

    saying that i cant see why you would ever need a cherry picker on this?

    The way I work its is my hourly rate (£35ph for up to two hours, anything over two hours is charged at £30ph as I don't have to travel) then add costs to the here any specific equipment, if your buying equipment then add 20% of the cost of the equipment to the quote.


    So for example:

    7hours work

    Plus cherry picker hire @ £135

    (7x35)+135
    245+135
    380

    I'd prob then go in at £420 and allow them to negotiate.

    They have requested a cherry picker twice a year for a deep clean on all the frames as there are lots of trees around the flats!
