    Hi!

    Do you think it is rude to ask a customer if he would like a one off clean or a regular service and then when he/she says that they would like a one off you reply that you dont do one offs ?

    Not at all
    Aslong as both parties make clear from the start
    I don't do one offs either ( unless it's an existing customer or family )
    They can always find someone who has time to do it

    To be fair i only say no to people who i suspect would be messers from the word go therefore i do not want to get involved. I do one offs all the time but with "price adjustment" as cheapncheerful suggested

    I have to say last year I just cleaned what came in and as a result I neglected a lot of my regular work so I have a new policy of putting them before new jobs...

    I have three new ones to price tomorrow and all will get a double price as I AM too busy to faff about anymore...

    still waiting for a renter who agreed my price to phone back and ask why I havent done them to which I will reply...leave me the money and they will get done....rentals are the biggest source of one offs..:D and if that sounds rude...tough titties..:whistle:

    in fact my policy is money first work last...I did a one off last year for £125 and demanded the cheque was sent to and left with the tenants...
