    Ok i am asking this out of curiosity as i am sure i am not over charging yet their is some scrote in town that is following me into shops and undercutting me buy a lot! :dodgy:

    It is monthly clean and is only the top level in the pic NOT the bottom. so you got the three tall sets of windows in front, one on end, then round back you got another 4 or 5 sets of two, same as front.

    Cant really compete with that and wouldn't want to.I try to sell myself as a quality service and if they want someone cheaper there are always guys that will.But after a few months they either don't like the quality of their work or they get let down

    Yep exactly, I did say that obviously I can guarantee a top notch service and explained that there are bodgers out there that will charge pennies but not do a great job.

    So will see either way charging those prices they will soon be out of business and I can pick up all his old work lol.

    If it was once a month i would say £10.
    TBH it sounds desperate to do it for a fiver,not worth getting the gear out for!

    got to be worth a tenner every day of the week
     
  10. I would get £10 to £12 where I live as most would charge £20 for commercial round here.
    If the other guy is charging a fiver he can't be earning very much so my guess is he raises the price after 3 months.
    Not worth parking up and setting up for a fiver.
    I do not agree with undercutting so if I were you I would go back to every shop and ask if you could leave your card. Tell them you will happy to come and provide a professional service at x amount if they are unhappy with the "fly by ***ht".
    My guess is those calls will come.
