    Cold canvassing cafes seems to give me a lot of breaks.... seems always some business head is eating when I ask...

    Last time I canvasses a cafe I got thrown a steady two bones...
    This time... well, photos say it all... lovely job.

    Insides not finished yet, but will be shooting for a builders first clean then routine, the outside fronts is ready for regular clean. at the back, the ground floor will be builders' but I might just give that in, but not without mention of course, to sweeten the deal. Screens will be included, I assume.

    Would like to hear opinions and suggestions, anything at all.

    The work, i can see and plan effectively, though may have over looked or missed something. And the all important quote, pricing this size is new for me.

    You can either set yourself a day rate and work out how short/long the day(s) will be or price by individual Windows

    That size on a monthly clean I would charge £40. If they want the balcony including £50.

    Have you got the equipment to clean that high? I'm thinking of the single window above the bay in the front, the glass roof panels at the back, and those 2 windows above that.

    If you haven't then its probably not worth the equipment investment for a one off job.

    On the back and above the glass wall at the front, windows can be done from inside. I can get access to a pole to reach the top two windows of the front(painted wall, to left of glass wall.)

    Well, after my second visit to check the place out (important, i feel, with a job this size and my first quote of this size)

    I hope the punt is fair and successful. They wanted a lot of cleaning throughout the month, so ive given a quote of the weekly and monthly bill, overlooking the builders clean hike to hopefully increase my chances.

    It would mean masses to me if i got this one in. This would be the point to build a portfolio of site photos and client reviews.

    It would also do me well as I picked up a 40 pounder walking back along the way there
