a) never hired a window cleaner before and therefore thinks it will be 150$
b) actually did have someone do it for 150 but for whatever reason she just cant seem to get a hold of him anymore…
I dont know what area you are from and whats acceptable there but when in doubt count your estimated hours. We charge 120 per hour and our minimum fee is 180. That looks like it would take 3 hrs so definitely wouldnt go lower than 360 PLUS HST
Unless your new (one year in) it should be 70+. I try to price things at 100+ now but sometimes miss it and hit 70-80. I’ll accept 80 If its a new clean as I know I’ll hit 100 the next time, but 70 is a bit low.
Even as someone ‘just starting out’ I would still be weary about pricing low. I’m not sure what your long term goals are (or what the market in your area is like for window cleaning) but charge for long term also… Consider cost of insurance, equipment, future payroll etc… This way when you’re bigger, you won’t have to drastically up your prices for your first clients or stop answering their calls. 70-80 is really reasonable.
Your likely not going to be efficient for a bit, so if you do some searching on here for how people are pricing and what those people are making per hour, then you can base your pricing off them. Garry has posted his pricing on multiple threads and hits 100 per hour. A search on his pricing should give you a good reference. Of course one offs like the 4 season room you posted take practice to quote.
