    Why on earth do people namely other " window cleaners " feel the need to charge stupid stupid stupid prices for cleaning windows ???

    Let me explain .

    Today i had a phone call to price up a job she told me the address and i knew what house it was so thought ok i will go down and price it
    so i gets there has a look around and gives them the price of £15.00 for glass frames and her porch .

    HOW WRONG WAS I !!!!!!!

    OOOOOOOH NO she turns round and says is that for the insides as well as i want those doing too i said erm no ;ove thats just for the outside . the insides are usually more as theres more obstacles etc .

    the cheeky cow turns round and says my current window cleaner charges me £4 for outsides and £4 for insides . so i said you best stick with him then .
    no way on gods earth would i even consider doing just the fronts only for £4 never mind the whole damn house .

    wouldnt mind but they got 11 windows 1 bay window a bloody 2x4 porch and 2 upvc doors .

    CHEEKY MARE !!!!

    OK rant over .

    £4???
    There is no way he's paying tax/insurance etc etc,. he's prob on the dole & this is just beer money - that or retired & doing it just cause he's bored. You can never compete with that kind of fool on price, but your service will always be better!

    £4 is cheap for 12 windows!! But £4 jobs add up if you have alot in the 1 street..

    Why do you pay to get them cleaned anyway? Lol your a window cleaner! I'd never pay anyone to do something that I could do myself?
