    going to go thru all my round and put prices up on a few customers that are underpriced... also thinking of adding 50p to a few jobs that are 8 pound but should really be 8.50 :p

    I dont bother with 50p jobs .
    I like to keep it to a nice round number like £8 or £9 .

    But I prefer the paper jobs where they are a nice round figure of £10 or £15 so they pay in paper money most of the time .

    if thats what its worth, put them up, 8 divided by 100 is 0.08 x 6 is 48pence, so a 6% rise. got to go up a few percent per year to avoid having a big price rise and the customer wont mind so much.

    Would have thought hitting customers with a price increase just after crimbo and in bad weather too boot would not be the best time do you?

    May I suggest that if you have any customers left by spring that would be a better time to start thinking about putting your prices up ;)

    Nothing like a small 25% increase. What's inflation at? Lol
