does the top link not work? it does on my pc,   someone else has put in a lower quote so i wont get it anyway, had no problems with last owner and not done it for new ones my guess is they had bad work wherever they have come from just interested in what others would charge, job was handy for parking but its my best priced area so don't need the job

Works now sometimes Opera browser plays up with links. Unconvinced clients that have had a bad wfp job in the past can easily be convinced I tell them that any job done badly will give bad results a job done thoroughly and properly will give the best results.

i did told i her runs/spotting happens if frames aren't cleaned properly which i always do but i could tell by talking to her she was always going to go with other quote so i said give us a shout if he doesn't come up to scratch  then as we were driving off she came askng for my quote. i'm happy to work off ladders but i charge for it but its been so long since i priced a big ladder job i've no idea if i was anywhere near

Is it a pub?

if it is tell her due to health and safety you can't use a ladder on it.To ladder above them bay windows looks agro I wouldn't even consider it.

 

I had a job that I had been cleaning for around 3 years, they never had a problem with the work and I had never put the price up.

All was good until a new account manager came in and asked me if I would reduce my price "I said no chance and if anything it was going up"

From that moment I knew that job was going they shopped around and someone local came in 50% cheaper.They asked me to match it and I thanked them for their custom and stoped cleaning it.

my point is that no matter what method you choose chance are you wouldn't get it as who ever has quoted has gone in at a silly price.There are some desperate shiners about.

Confused......if you were to lower your price(do not) then would they be happy wfp?. or do they prefer seeing them done trad?

its a hotel

the price isn't the problem' she doesn't like wfp.   i was doing it for £35  took less than an hour and gave me good parking for 3 other nearby jobs, i said £120 for trad as there are 5 windows that are 30ft ish

The HSE guidelines require you to ise the safest practical option at all times. 

 

With that in mind she's adding £400 per clean to the job for the cherry picker.  😅😅
