    I got a few customers on my round that its not even worth doing... i got 1 customer at £8.00 and thats the whole house... with a full conservatory !

    And this customer i have to knock their door to get to the back its a right headache.... it should e priced at £12.00 easily !

    I got this job the first timei went canvassing and didnt know much about pricing

    lol

    I also got a few more that i want to take off.... due to awkward access problems and daft prices and bad payers

    i toke 1 off already so now i got 94 customers.... but i want to take 4 more customers off

    shall i just go for it ? ? :p i will be left with 90 customers but these 90 customers are decent :) lol

    Or tell them you.priced it wrong the job is taking longer than you thought and you need to up the price if they disagree then drop them but you still have that option dont just bin them you could still salvage something

    If you can afford to drop it, then drop it.

    This is a great suggestion. You've got literally nothing to lose if you want to drop them anyway. Politely explain the price needs to go up, otherwise you can't afford to continue with the clean. They can take it or leave it. Give this a go and let us know how you get on?
