£16 too much?


JJ Window Cleaners

Recommended Posts

I was asked for a quote today for the house in the middle. She wants all the windows you can see cleaned, plus two similar size windows round the back and spme patio doors.

 

I'm inclined to tell her £16, but her neighbour across the street (with the same house) wants hers doing too, so should I drop it a bit or stick to my guns?

Personally I don't charge more for a first clean for a regular but would not drop the price because there is another job close

You should have a minimum you would accept to do the job so why would you go lower

Personally I don't charge more for a first clean for a regular but, it's about time I bloody did....I'm sick of spending an hour for 8 quid cause I think it'll only take me 20 minutes next time....it rarely does !

I got so sick of spending twice the amount of time for £7 and they end up being summer one offs. So my new policy from 2 weeks ago is first clean £10 front and same back... and I wasn't bothered if I loose a quote because I am already maxed out. You know what... they where happy to pay... bugger and almost all are now regulars. I think people like it when they pay a price and then get a "discount" for all the other cleans. I think im onto a good business model.

if 16 is what you charge normally then stick to your guns . as said earlier this high stuff is risky ,in winter really risky -so well worth charging a bit more for

You start charging more for first cleans when you got plenty of work & couldn't care less being rejected.

 

I woouldn't say I have a lot of work however I don't do cheap first cleans anymore . Many ppl say regular to get you clean their windows cheap then NO mo Required thank you ...

i always say "do you want a regular clean or simply a one off ? "

 

i say it as if either way is okay by me. and i say it Before i give any price. iv learnt that the wrong way is to give a price first then find they only want a one off because then they switch to trying it on with a false promise of becoming a regular , once they realize there is 2 prices
