yeah power washing for the rainy days get windows done while the weather good i'll sometimes give an estimate over the phone if there 15 mile away say £150-200 just so they know what there looking at been out plenty of times in the past were drove 20 miles got there to price up n they thought it was too much. e.g the last one was about 12 mile away to quote gutters and fascias took me about 25 mins in traffic got there told him £55 he said No thats too much the last time i had it done it cost me £10
