I get really bugged if I am off schedule. Happily though dropping add ons will help sort that. For me it's monthly, every other month or one off.

Could you share how you would quote for each frequency Mr Green on say a £10 house?

I mean once you have settled in your mind the job price, do you have a ratio to account for the extra dirt the longer the frequency?

i.e. standard, x1.5 or x2. thanks

Nope. I simply make it up as I feel. £10 becomes £14 becomes £30.
Just depends how I feel.

I'm just showing what can be done!

 

And yeah I suppose it did go on a bit but here isn't no need to attack to it, save your critic for people giving bad advice and being "negative" JAY.

Nothing wrong with having a dream and setting your mind to it and pulling out all the stops to achieve it and making it a reality!!!! Good luck Paul,, with allot of hard work and dedication anything is possible in this World we live in!!  :1f44d:

I'm Monthly but it's usually 5 weeks sometimes 6 and sometimes it's even monthly.

If I want a day or 2 days off I just take them and then carry on again, maybe start a little earlier than the normal 09.30 and work through till 04.30 with lunch on the hoof or maybe not.

The beauty of it is we can do what we want when we want...never had a customer complain that I'm late....I tell them when I take them on that there will be a period in the Summer months when I will be a little later than usual due to hols....and I may be a bit behind around Jan Feb time when we seem to get the worst weather.

But the major difference if you are calendar monthly and late is . That money is lost . You have told your custys 12 cleans a year you miss a month you lose . Every other frequency 4 , 6 or 8 weekly you can pull em forward and if late put em back in line . With no money lost .

Of course all of this only matters if you need / care about that weeks worth of work.
I have always been monthy. Had 2 weeks off last month to go on holiday and did I loose a second of sleep? Nope. If I only do 3 weeks a month i'm not bothered.
There is no 'correct' or 'only' way to run your round. That is personal choice.
I run mine how I like it and I won't presume to tell you what will work best for you. That's up to you.

Yeh totally agree . About everyone running there round the way that suits them . But at the end of the day it’s bad business to lose cleans = lose money . I had 2 weeks off in the middle of August . I started pulling the work forward in July . I was a week in front by the time I went away .by mid October I was back on track . In a couple of weeks time I will start it all again . Guaranteed I will have at least a week off at Christmas with all work due that week up o date . Result . =no money lost all work up to date . Starting on the front foot in the new year .

Guess I'll just stick to running a bad business then.

I’m not trying to tell any one how to run there business . Or saying anyone is running there business bad . There’s probably plenty on here who run a bigger and better business than me . At the end of the day a lad asked s question and got a few opinions which is what the forum is about . I’m probably a bit ocd and greedy when it comes to keeping on top of my work . Back at it tomorrow. Looks s bit nippy first thing . So I got down to screwfix and got the lad some new gloves . Don’t want him crying cos it’s down to single figures . :1f603: now chill out and watch countryfiles weather for the week .

I tell my customers monthly, 6 weekly, 2 monthly but by monthly i mean 28 days which is what i put in my spreadsheet

If i do a job at the beginning of the month and it then says due at end of the same month i will leave it a day or 2 to be at the start of the next month but if it's a 2 monthly (56 days) then i will just do it even if it was only done last month

 

Nobody has ever complained as they were originally told they will get a clean once a month but also nobody moans i am late as i have days/weeks to play with before i am considered late
