ok dan, first of all think about how much work you will get doing this job, do good job being friendly you will pick up loads of work just with doing this single job. also do it before 8.am and its bonus to your daily income.

my price I would be happy with £15 tops I,m sure you would pick up loads of work with only doing costa gd luck

I used to to blockbusters with a couple more windows like that for £35 a week and got the manager to get a receipt book so he could take the cash out the till and put the receipt in it's place

Ooh, I'd like to do the insides of the estate agent opposite, not :whistle:

 

Plus is parking going to be a factor? Double yellows all over the shop. £30 including tackling snot left by kids on the insides, plus a coffee to go :thumbsup:

 

I'm finding full monty cleans are the way forward at the moment (when I have spare time to do them).

I think I need to charge more for the shops I do, I think Im to cheapncheerful:). My first shop I ever got,which was also my first job, takes me about 40mins and I charge £8, i think in total its about 70 panes of glass(inside/out), on the insides I have to move ornaments, signs, glass ornaments, there was a tea tray shelf system that I moved and it tipped broke every cup n saucer on it:eek:, but it is just for ornamental purposes in the cafe, so owner was fine about it. I was thinking of saying about doubling the price, but the job has sentimental value, I also buy a latte £1.50, which is good:)

As said before companies would write it off on expenses so you can charge a bit more

I do some work for homes and mortgages now for their landlords and always put a few quid on the price.

I get paid by the company who then charge the landlords

id try to find out what the previous guys price was by saying to the manager in an off the cuff way "whats the price?" . they already know within a pound or 5 . you need that extra 5

a lot of shop commercial is so low priced that it only pays off if you are on the high street for several hours . thats because by the time you get parked, get paid on a 30 day invoice that can stretch to 60 days you would be better off doing residential without the grief. you also might need extra insurance and if you employ workers some of these stores wont allow your employees to be under 18

 

basically,is it really worth it ?

 

up to a year ago i had quite a few shops as a subby for a london firm , then i was getting leaned on to do more shops but all well out of my area . i was also getting paid late ,in the end i stopped doing them and have not missed it one bit .

I use a receipt book for my commercial, look a bit naff, but they don't need to be to fancy as long as its got the date, write down the shop name,your business name, the price, can get a book from stationers,maybe asdas. Shop just needs a receipt to stick in their accounts book,job done.
