    Was out today leaflet dropping not working picked up a couple of jobs when a woman approached me and asked for a one off clean front only, three story town house 3 big and 1 small dirty windows and a door, to be honest don't think my slx22 would reach anyway I quoted £12 she thought that was extortionate is that too much what's your views considering she didn't want any maintence cleans afterwards.

    My one off cleaning charge minimum is £30 for a town house it's £40 minimum, outside of that if they aren't happy with the price then they can clean them themselves.

    For me that was too cheap, I charge 10 to go to 2nd floor on a regular service so one off would be a score.

    That said all areas are different but you set your prices and the most important thing in this business I feel is stick to your prices ;)

    To be honest I didn't want the job only want regular customers for now, but because she was in the area I was leaflet dropping and trying to build up custom I thought go cheap maybe get a recommendation out of it how wrong was I lol.

    Btw it was a very expensive house.

    id have done it for £8-9... You were there already, would have taken 15mins? a quick scrub and rinse with the pole, the neighbours get to see you in action too... And although she might not have been willing To commit on the spot to regular cleaning, it might have been a nice little bonus job now and again when she catches you cleaning the neighbours...

    I personally dont do one offs, but you asked our opinions and my opinion is that your price is not extortionate :)

    Understand what your saying high tower, Was in the wifes fiesta not the van so would have meant driving home 6 mile round trip like I said don't think the slx22 would have had a long enough reach anyhow, but good to hear everyone's opinions.

    22 should reach on new builds. 25 min for older builds.

    Unless you go round it.
