    There is this franchise cleaning company around me, they do window cleaning, think I see them once around, but they ranked petty high on google.

    I bet you cannot guess the price... they quoted me.

    I asked for a quote for this: 12 normal windows which two are bay windows and two of the windows on back are on the third floor. I asked for one off and monthly.

    Two bays, one window and a door on front side. Door and three small on side. Back two on ground, two on 1st floor, two on top floor. Nothing major!

    Say a price I bet you wont guess it, either that or im super cheap!

    For first clean and then monthly..

    £76 first clean then £69... I said are you sure, he said yes that's the best we can do.
    I really couldn't see anyone ever paying that.

    For me I would have said £25 first time then £20 after, so I think I was cheap lol.

    They must get enough to stay in biz! Nice work if you can get it, but we'd be waiting a long time for those kind of pay days

    there is a guy round my way that prices like this, if you wonna do this then you gotta target up market clients.

    100k+ income
    Not the sub human scum that knocks you £13 for a flat who has not got a pot to pi$$ in.

    £700-£1000 a year to keep your property looking sharp is not bad if you can afford it.

    Its the people with champagne taste and beer money you gotta weed out.

    Its only expensive if you cant afford something.

    That does sound alot, but it does depend entirely on where you live? I'd be half that too, but some people just don't know better or care about price if they have enough money, infact some people 'want' to pay more as they think they are getting a better service. We need 3 x as much work as them. Still I am much happier there are companies out there increases the trades prices, rather than bringing it down to pennies as shown in another thread!

    to push the price up the limit of acceptability in the given demographic, if we could nail that... We'd be happy folk, and probably good poker players :D
