    So I email a local school I drive past most days to say let me clean the filthy bike shelters for exchange and/or put a free ad in their magazine or such like.
    Anyway they ring me and say thank you and while you're there can you quote for the whole school! Result but other than shops I only clean residential. So I'm there tomorrow to clean the shelters and price the rest of the job up.
    I'm slightly clueless on price and am concerned about both the height ( I have 5 poles but am yet to use the largest ) and the annoying vents situated half way down.
    Will post some pics I took today

    That's one ugly school lol. Just price as a day rate. Why are you concerned about the height? get you poles out while your going shelter and try it out

    good point, only concern is they are brodex poles and did half get one out and it felt like a flipping scaffold pole. Concern is I have never used the longest pole. It won't be til the summer holiday anyway. Yer the windows have ruined the building! What about the fans? Imagine water will leak everywhere.

    The kids won't notice ;)

    You did ask permission to take pics of the school from the gates? You never know what you might get blamed for :specs

    hi and congrats boy that is high..good luck
    ...Im only small fry these days so cant help you with a price..

    if I got that ...I would be off for my slx straight away..dont know how big though..

    ..just the first clean would cover a new pole time..

    it would be a great job no one around take your time...music on..:D

    in my case...drag the missus along and show her how to wfp...

    and possibly the kids too....


    AND WELL SPOTTED TUFFERS NEVER THOUGHT OF THAT....who was a gary glitter and jimmy saville fan...in fact there after cliff too now..no one left...except noel and his jumper:rofl:

    Some jobs aren't worth the hassle and this one looks like one. But good on you if you get it done. I've been trad for 25 years and WFP for a year now. I wouldn't touch this place with a barge pole. But that's me. Always like to be in and out of a job as quickly as I can. As for charging, like Dredge said, go day rate and if they ask how long it will take then always over estimated . Good luck mate
