You can give an estimate, but ask a few questions first, you need to find out if they are shopping around for the lowest price possible, you do this by giving them a price, if they go quite, pause to long, gasp, etc - You have sussed them out, personally I wont bother with customers like this.

 

Start with whatever price comes to mind, I had one last week 3 bed semi, and I said it would be a minimum of £10 – never heard from her again. A day later that same week I did a first clean for a 3 bed semi £40, the price over the phone was for £25, but when I got there to give a definite quote the price ended up being £40.

I just don't want the custom of someone who expects a quote and won't give details

i use google maps and street view to estimate a price over the phone

 

alot of the time its not worth the petrol to go give a price for them to say the last bloke only charged £4.

I normally get a hunch over the phone,I promote myself,give a good usp and done.If I think there going to be difficult then walk away.

I am lucky that have so much work I don't worry.
