    as you know went out posting other day in rain and got texts off 2 of them +one more last night so went quoted today
    iv already got a few houses around this area so was nice to add a few extra

    one was only 4 windows at front easy 2 normal sized windows 2 small windows got it at £5 plus will pay over paypal 5mins

    one was two bed room semi quoted £9 ,only after posted I thought why 9 should of rounded it to 10 but is still easy ,easy excess to back no messing .not got back to me yet . 8-10 mins

    the third I quoted a £10er two bed semi 15mins max ,got the job
    and an easy gutters in out front and back ,and some
    Fascia's cleaning front and back
    at the back theres a near flat roof extension so can easily do gutters off that then the gutters on the extension.
    Google Maps

    I feel I can do the gutters and windows in 2hours and charged £65 for gutters and £10 for the windows .im personally happy with that ,but is that less then what should be charged for them .back is the same as front + gutters on extension .would like to know what people thought.

    anyway when I said 10er for the windows she said great ill have them done every week ......................I was stunned but felt that was to much ,I did say I do most of my windows once a month ,I said I don't personally think you need them every week but ill do them every 2weeks and if you still want them every week after a while ill change it to weekly .so we both agreed fortnightly. And finally, she said her friend wants hers doing but shes going away tomorrow for a week or two and when she gets back she wants a quote for windows gutters and the roof /sides of her conservatory .

    all this with a few hours canvassing in rain ,that I didn't want to do ,well seems to have paid off .lol .

    Is that including the fascias on the side of the house?
    That is a bit irrelevant though as that is an easy 65 notes for an hours work
    If you are happy with that price then it is the right price
    The more you do them the easier it will be to quote on the fly and get it right
    Easy money though bud so well done

    I have leafletted since 9 this morning and just got home although i did meet up with Adams0211 and have a little doss but have done a good few hundred leaflets in an area i am targeting as it joins onto my best area
    Will keep you posted

    the side of the house is the apex ,because im doing this off ladders I said I might not be able to do it ,but if on the day I can itll be another £20 which now thinking about it is cheap for the side considering the height of it .so 75 for all gutters and windows and if I can do it another 20 for the apex.
    was going to do a diy trolly wfp a while back for this exact reason but never got round to it .
    going to pick up a progutter over weekend (needed one anyway )
    Iv done the odd 1-2 gutter cleans before and the odd conny roof ,so struggle to know how long it takes but we ll get there .

    Progutter get from b&q for 7 quid
    If you are only gonna use it for fascias then buy a pump for £14 off ebay
    Battery for about 12
    Put it in a exterior junction box from b&q for a tenner
    Buy a cheap pole off ebay
    I wouldn't use that for everyday window cleaning but would suffice for fascias
    Dirt cheap ..jimmyboots did a thread "homemade alternative to backpack" which has links to the parts needed
    No need for reel or anything and tapwater is fine
