Hi Mr. Gleam,

I am hopefully going to get a cleaning contract soon.  Therefore, I need to offer an attractive price, so I know how you feel.

I think the best way is to do some market research.

For example, phone round building firms, offices and blocks of flats maybe to get a feel for how much they pay out.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes,

 Do you have a Buisness Profile? if so, start by dropping these of at  local buisness"s these will show what you are able to provide to a potential client, good luck         Anj

Hi Mr Gleam

Once you have done your sales calls and been included in the tender the client will usually send you a pack with what they would like included in the tender.

This normally consists of Company profile, Schedule of Works, Insurance documents, Health & Safety, quotation etc.

Once you have got all of these formats on your PC you just need to tweak them each time to suit the client.
