Fronts only and inside cleans.

Recommended Posts

Dundeeladdie

Hi all. Had loads of great advice and info from all on this forum. It's great how willing to help us newbies you are.

 

I was wondering...

For residential only...

 

1. What percentage of your customers have insides cleaned too?

 

2. What percentage only have fronts cleaned?

 

Thanks all.

Have around 100 regular customers at the moment just one lady has inside clean and two other people have fronts only the rest gets everything done outside.

Thanks guys. That's a relief. Those numbers sound good to me.

So it seems safe to presume around 1 or 2 out of every 100 have fronts only cleaned and about the same numbers opt to have insides cleaned too.

 

How do you price for fronts only and how do you price for insides (residential)?

I've got about 180 regular customers, probably 20-30 have their insides done on a regular basis, if it's a good customer I charge the same for inside, not so good customers get charged 1.5x the outside price. 0 front only, I don't offer it as a service, it's all round or nothing, I hold the view that recommendations are the best advertising, if a customer recommended you to a friend or relative based on their windows, then looked at the back and thought "that window cleaner ain't very good, look at the back windows"..

So learn your craft and keep doing a.good job and rewards will come

I know a trad lad that just does fronts only for donky years and charges extra to do backs when asked less frequent. He covers what I call the pain in the arse area of the town as are all old terraced properties with difficult access to the backs. He has a very compact large round he has built up over the years. Hence why he prefers to just do fronts only which makes his job so much easier & quicker to do as he just parks his car up and walks his round.

Hi I have 2 fronts only.. I have 1 that has tops only. These jobs are next door to where I'm working in so don't mind custys choice. I wouldn't go out of my way for a fronts only unless it was easy enough n time effiecient to do. And have only about 5 that have insides done. Have thought about offering it more though, but don't like moving peoples ornaments n things from insides of wi ndows. I would ask them to move things out the way if they want insides done at same price as outs or add on a bit extra. Remember kitchen window can take a while as usually covered in years old grease at times.

I have one front only. About 5 years ago he randomly said he just wanted the front doing, even though I can easily access the back. Normally around Xmas he will get me to do the back conservatory and side windows - I just charge 2.5 times what I normally would.

If the customer is not in to give me access, or forgotten to leave the gate open, then I just do the fronts and charge just over half the usual cost.

 

The few interior cleans I do get are minimal, but I don't mind them, especially if I've just done the outsides as it saves me petrol or walking distance.
