Shop Front, What Would You Charge For This?


Recommended Posts

I have not done any shop fronts & know a lot of them are done quite cheap by trad.

Been asked to quote for this on 2 weekly & monthly for sign, the doors are all glass too, I know its only small, but not sure.

I am thinking XL Bacon double cheese burger meal? lol

What would you charge?

2 weekly? they'll be absolutely greased up.


I'd recommend weekly (maybe twice weekly), £10 weekly, £10 for sign once a month.


That's exactly what I was thinking price wise, glad you said that, I didn't think how greasy they would be! good point!

Ubik or Virsol diluted would be good.


Same as masons.


But in all honesty if it was me, i would say to the manager i want £20's worth of food for each clean.

Good tip I have some Virsol for first cleans & manky conny roofs, what mix would dilute it for that? or just use it in hand spay gun?

Also would you just trad it or wfp outside?

Last firm was £15.

I got called in to quote my local Mac D's


Outside, inside 1st visit


outside & doors 2nd visit


outside & doors 3rd visit


3 visits a week at £45 per visit.


I worked out each time is about an hour maybe a bit more.


The last "national" firm was charging £15 an a visit.


Soooooooooooooo £45 a week! I wanted £45 a visit!


basically told the jumped up bleep to do one.


The last firm couldn't wait to get out of the contract, that's why they stopped coming!

FYI i dont waste any time now with commercials.


Waste of time and money, unless you dedicate a van to just commercial.


residential is less stress and very very very VERY easy money!

£15 is very cheap for a mcds, I charge more and yet mine are considered cheap for commercial. But it's regular work and money and it means I'm earning money before most windy's are awake. Then I start my residential for 8:00-8:30.

They pay monthly direct debits which is always nice.
