    Hi guys ,

    This afternoon I was approached by a facilities management team who want to sub out some work for a large chain on a retail park and asked me to quote them a price for the following work...

    Fortnightly exterior doors and windows ( shop entrance only )

    Quarterly interior doors and windows (shop entrance only )

    6 monthly Exterior main sign ( theres 3 as its an end building , about 35' to the top )

    Obviously I would love to get this work but I've never priced anything like this and not quite sure where to start.
    Any help is truly appreciated. Thanks

    PS the canopies are to be extras as and when requested..... not sure how I would manage them as the deepest one is about 2.7 meters deep.?!? IMG_2305.jpg

    I've usually found when someone wants me to sub for them that they tell me the price they will pay me. I had a company approach me from Scotland wanting me to clean a large glazed shop in a big city and they told me the specs and when the start date would be. Nice of them I thought :D
