Hi Mark
          What area are you in Huh

I think its Northamptonshire Steve.

I think I'd probably charge about 10-11 for that job (Here in Bristol), but bear in mind that its only worth doing if you have other work in the area, and preferably close enough to walk to in less than 2 minutes.

Also, if you have to walk for miles to get to the alleyway leading to the back, and then fiddle around trying to climb over a gate (maybe with that illegal broken glass?!) this all takes extra time, and you should charge accordingly.

Even if it doesnt take extra time, I sometimes charge extra if a job's a pain in the neck to do!

Its round corner from me.

Easy access down alley way straight to back.

Old dear always in, but no prob if not. as just through gate.

Cheers

Mark

Hi Mark
          I would probably charge about 10 for that but you really need to know the going rate in your area.

Good Luck Wink

Steve
