What should we charge?
I have set up a cleaning company with my partner earlier this year, and all is going well. So far so good. (fingers crossed it will stay like that) I just have one question.
We are at the moment, bidding on cleaning a golf club, and we would need to give an estimate soon. It would be our first 'commercial' job.
The manager at the club wants us to do the cleaning every day, and the hours are up to us.
We can't really decide how many hours we should quote for one day? I was thinking maybe between 2-4. What would you say would be an acceptable hourly rate? We were thinking around £13-£14 but we also want this to cover the expenses such as employees, insurance, mileage, cleaning chemicals etc, but still have a bit of a profit at the end of the day.
It would be for 7 days a week. There are 3 offices one medium and two smaller sizes. Again there are the gents & ladies changing rooms (roughly about 25 sqm) each with separate toilets, shower cubicles. We don't have to touch the kitchen as it will be not our responsibility. However there is a dining room that is about 120 sqm and the 'pub' area is about 120-ish sqm.
Any advice will be very very appreciated.
