First cleans.



Recommended Posts

Going back to the op there are window cleaners in my location that I know one would charge £8 anther £10 another £12 and me £15 -£25 depending how frequent the clean is (without a conservatory or extension on the back)

 

Less is more as they say so I prefer to work less for more :D

I clean a similar house to this on an estate in a village for £18. Yes I was pushing my luck but I don't really need the work. I started doing it two years ago. Now I do two others at £18 and another 2 at £25.

There is another window cleaner going onto the estate and he charges £13 for my £18 jobs. I have never met the guy but it appears that he is a bit grumpy and they don't like him because of it. I try to be nice and helpful, always smile and polite. They told me recently of a new window cleaner who came and canvassed and they proudly told them that they had me.

 

In short, if you can charge more do. Once you have them they don't often change.

Like I sad before there is no right or wrong price as long as both the cleaner and customer is kept happy.

 

You could be the cheapest or even dearest cleaner going but if the potential customers don't like you for whatever reason you will never win the work.

No Tench, I'm in Mid Devon. I tend to work in West Devon and Mid Devon. I have a couple of larger jobs in East Devon. I only go to your neck of the woods for leisure, never for work.

Here's another one. £2.50 fronts - £5.00 back, front and side window. They have most of the houses in the close.

I've got some £5 houses (fronts only, all in a row), very compact and can do 4 of them quicker than a £20 house a lot of the time.

Don't get me started on hoses :mad: mine will loop and loop when it's reeled in and then get wrapped round the spindle when reeling it off just lately. I bought new hose thinking I'd stretched it too much or something, but the new one is doing the same. It's either the way I'm reeling in or the reel has had it.
