Small apartment shucks

Post by dp1 on Tue Feb 23, 2016 8:29 pm

I had to clean by myself today because the job ended up being the only job for the day and it was a very small cottage, customer is expecting a baby and wanted furnitures moved around, living room has sofa, coffee tables and 2 chairs, it's 120 sq ft Shocked
Bedroom, they moved the queen mattress to the corner of the room and wanted me to clean under the bed frame and around the nightstand and dresser, damn that was difficult, I almost break my sapphire tool to get that job done, lol.

If you would have had you partner you could have knocked that room out in 2:30 seconds.

I cleaned a small single wide manufactured, I could barely fit through the hall much less clean it

Yeah Mo, I was seriously thinking to raise my minimum to $ 200 at that job, it was about 300 sq ft including hallway and entry and it took me a freaking hour to clean that, well to be fair, that includes moving furnitures, tabbed them, setting up and packing up, if that was empty, I would've saved a whopping 15 - 20 minutes, lol.

Aggggggggg

I unfortunately see those type of tiny units way too often, because there all over along the coast here. So I feel your pain.

The problem I run into trying to charge more than a $120 min is, they're almost always rentals, and we know $120 is pushing it for most of them..............I mean, I probably scare off 80% as is with a $120 min. So if I were to go higher I'd never do one, hmmmmmmmmm, maybe not a bad idea!!! laughing

havent had very many people at all turn down the 125 minimum, I can remember a couple last year one called and canceled after scheduling and said I found someone with a "wayyyyy" lower minimum lol you could tell he was excited about how cheap it was.
