    Hi guys,

    I'm getting mixed feelings about this but I was just wondering what i should charge per window?

    I live just outside the Guildford area in Surrey, I was thinking £1.50 per window as a rough guide?

    Cheers

    Hello mate a lot of pricing is location I lived in shepperton which is approx. 15 miles up the road from you and I know Guildford has it nice areas I also did a lot of work around there but ( over 20 years ago ) every job is different £1.50 can work no problem but I have found this is always a rough guild to pricing,

    You can try but if your new starting out you may need to offer cheaper prices to attract customers.

    We have all done it.

    I just price it by how long it will take, fuel cost, travelling time. The pound per widow or 1.50 per window can come back and bit you in the a-hole

    if you have an idea of how long to clean a house just price it by time to clean, you should have a rough idea of pricing by the size of the house, this will come naturally you can also underprice. it will all come with experience

    You should be charging per hour mate, I'm in Heathrow and aim for around £140 a day (5-6 hours working) and I think you could aim for £140 ish for a 4-5 hour day over your way.
