End of tenancy- pricing
« on: November 26, 2018, 10:18:41 pm »
Hello. We started with our cleaning bussines nearly 3 months ago. We are already in cooperation with one of letting agency in our town. We do End of tenancy cleans for them. Ive done  5 jobs for them only  but they want use us as a first choice company. Im bit confused about pricing for that kind of job. Sometimes they saing ‘general clean’ only but batrooms look filthy with a scaled taps or showers and descaling takes a lot of time. We want to charge £15p/h for our job but still think hour rate is too low. For example: 1bed flat with one bathroom takes 3hours for both of us, so:
6hours man work x £15=£90 all together. Is too low? Of course price depends of condition of every flat/house. Should we add 20% for every quote as expenses for chemicals or cost of fuel?
We have advantage on ltd companies because we dont add VAT our price. We are based near Dover, Kent.

Hi Jakub.

I think the EOT clean should not be charged per hour.
It should go per item:
General clean  (based one off price)
Oven clean
Mould treatment
Fridge Freezer defrost
Additional cost to provide a deep clean, for example degreasing terrible kitchen etc.

Thank you Daniel for reply to my post.

I understand your point of veiew, but not every(for example) 3 bed house is the same. Some of them are really filthy with dirty bathrooms or kitchens and has a lot of limescale and it takes much more time to clean it up. One 3 bed house takes 4 hours for 2 men but some of them 5hours, 6 or even longer. So if the price will be the same for every same number of rooms house/flat and i will be have to spend much more time on filthy one there is no chance to earn sensible money. That way to make a quote is  fine if you work for your own, but not if u have to pay to cleaners to do the job right. Filthy house=no profit.

Thanks.
