So, I have been cleaning for 2 years now. At one point I had an employee for about 3 months for routines cleans and one helper to,me for move in out cleans. That help left to,do,their own thing and I,uave realized that I can do that same amount of,work in the time in took a team of 2.
I quote each job by the job not by the hour. Here's the problem, I can pretty much do any house in 2 1/2 hours or less. I feel like I can do a little more than some people and from experience, I do a lot more than most in that 2 hour period.
Some customers cant justify paying much over $60 when I'm just in the house for 2 to 3 hours.
Anyone, have any advice for me? I have explained many times that I am a business. Bonded and insured. All of that plus expenses and taxes come,off of that but they don't care. They will find someone that does ot on yhe side.
I usually will not come down on price unless they want routine services. I might come down from the initial clean.
The ones that agree with price, stay with me and quickly see what all I do to justify the price....its just getting the customer initially.
Thank you for any advice.
