Date Posted: 10/June/2005 at 11:56pm
I was wondering if anybody has any advice on bidding jobs. Is it best to say that you charge 25cents a sq ft or per room.  I am still pretty new and am experimenting with how and what to charge my clients.  Any advice would be great, and please if you post a reply make sure that it is associated with my topic.....No thread hijackers!

It is best to do a walk threw. I personally do not charge the same for everything. some areas may need more attention than others, some may need content manipulation. Estimating is like a science once you do a couple you will slowly find out what you need to get to make money. Everyone's overhead is not the same.

Note:  If I want to hijack your post I will.

It is all about profit, right?

You must know your costs and that includes how long it will take you.

Walk through, exude professionalism and then give your price.

I like $200/hr better. $100/hour was done 20 years back; there has been inflation since then. You have to stay up with the times, eh?

Where does this magical 100 per hour come from?

SHWN 200 per hour I hope you are the only quoting?

We averaged $235/hr on our residential cleaning last year. Not hard to do if you are at the top of the market price wise, in Canada's richest city. Almost impossible to imagine in the GTA I suspose.

Mr. Steamer people will pay you 30 cents a sq, ft. faster than they will pay 75 to 100 dollars an hr.

Some of the people that get the same .50 to .75/sq ft I get in my business ARE in the GTA as well. But they are in the north end of it. Sorry for generalizing on this point Steamer, cause I know that there are exceptions to the rule. Unfortunatly, there are not alot of them. Only time I hear big bucks being paid there is in regard to water damage work. Then the pricing is higher than here.

My best advice to you would be grab as much as you can, do a decent job, pay your expenses, and take your wife or girlfriend out with the rest, or pay some bills. Times can be tough in this business, just remember the winter months and pretend they exist all year round. I bet if you were walking down the street and saw a dollar there, you would bend down and pick it up and be happy you found it.

The winter months can be very slow.......it all depends on what kind of work you set yourself up for.....it is good to have commercial work just for this reason alone.......most times having these kind of contracts can get you through those rough months.   Every year is different but I have found that the new year starts off very slow for most and last sometimes until the end of March.  This is a fact in this industry and will hit your business sooner or later........it would be smart to put a little away for the slow times.........and remember they do not say feast or famine for nothing.

Still does not change the fact that you are in love with this forum and I am only here to get more links to increase the strength of my websites.  Oh, and I am estimating jobs just fine, I was just looking for some quality responses. 

 8,800+ posts! What the hell do you do all day? Take your old fashion wand, old school marketing and get bent.  There is a new wave of carpet cleaners coming that use state of the art equiptment and real marketing. Carpet cleaning is entering the 21st century and guys like me are on the fore-front.  This forum sucks because of guys like you and ken.  Why not use this forum for what it was intened for?  Share ideas and stories that will help all of us do better business.  You guys just blab back and forth about NOTHING! 

And Ken-Where the hell are my roto glides? May 28th the order was put in.

P.S. Most forum masters don't let people just blab off topic. I would not recommend this forum to anyone.

Well Mathew, I checked for you.Your order was sent out on June 4th, which is exactly 7 days after you placed it with us. It can take up to 14 days to deliver by postal from here to where you are, so I am sure you will have them by Friday. It always seems to take along time when you are waiting for delivery, but so far your order is taking the normal 2 to 3 weeks we tell people it will take.

Mr. Mjzivko: I went to to you webb site. You are right I do not have a webb site as in my service area it is not needed.  I am sure you or who ever designed your webb site did the very best they could from what they had to work with. I will not say anything about site as it speaks for itself.  I will say one thing it kind of reminds me of a Chem Dry comparison at the beginning.

Posted By: mjzivko
Date Posted: 15/June/2005 at 5:19pm
The first site is an original design that has nothing to do with Chem Dry.  The second site is something I built in an afternoon for almost nothing.  I agree that the second site I built looks like sh#t.  But the fact remaines that both sites make the phone ring and put cash in my pocket with very little money spent.

Congratulations I am very happy for you and escecially since it is doing for you what it is supose to do. Different areas, population and a host of other things contribute how you must attract potential clients.  Unfortunately there is no magical ad or method of getting tht ad out to everyone works in every location. This new wave of cleaner you talk about and your state of the art equipment and your at the for-front??? I wish you luck. But I think you are more of a FOR-SKIN with your attitude. I seen your picture and the last I seen a head like that it was shook twice and  put away.  That is what I learned at the old school?

mjzivko,

Here's the deal, I now have all the info I need to proceed forward if you choose to still renig on the web design and search engine marketing contract between us.  I see the website you are now using.  Eventhough it is not the one I designed, you incorporated what I have taught you.  And even more you are bragging about it in this forum.  You have told everyone how good you are doing with your site so I can prove that you are just trying to renig on our contract to get out of paying me.  Here is a copy for all to see.

I will be willing to forgive the 2 remaining invoices, since you wont be using the site I built, but that is my final offer.  I'll expect the invoice you have by the 17th of June, 2005.  If not I can easily proceed for a summary judgement, I dont know if youll ever pay if I get one, but atleast your credit will reflect it, and it wont be easy for you to do this to someone else.

Darrel,
        Bad news.  Me and partner are going broke.  We shut down the site because we can't pay you today.  Keep the $600.00. We do have a site that is getting good calls, but is not nearly as good as chicago-carpet-cleaner.com, but we simply don't have the cash.  My partner doen't seem to get it like I do, but he and I agree that we have to wait to pay you.  So rather than you shutting down the site I did  it. Once we can pay down some of our debt we will get back with you.  I will send $50 to cover the host fee that you spent in your name.

here is his reply, to the above post.  You all can even read the contract if you want.  I have an email by him stating its ok to start the work, and that the contract is in the mail.

Some people will steal from others, and then brag about it.  Thats ok, the 12 yr judgement record on his credit report will say it all.  Even if he never pays up.  The funny thing is he thinks I wont do it!!!

       Dude, you got $600 to do very little work.  You know that I had a lot of knowledge about SEO before I met you.  You did fill in a lot of gaps for me, but so did SEO GUY and every other SEO forum I joined. I gave you $600.00 and now I  simply need to spend my money on more important things at this time.  We were still planning to go with you in the near future but you had to take to the open forums and try to threaten to sue me. 
 
I got news for you pal, we never signed sh*t.  The contract clearly states that signing the contract is a legal agreement.  Save your money, time, and walk away with your cash and remember this experience next time you do this.  $600 is not bad for changing the word phoenix to chicago and stealing my testimonials from my web site.  And Phone training?  You bull sh*tted with me and answered a few questions.  The fact is that you could of kept us as clients.  Try to sue me for $1800 with an unsigned contract. Good luck! This is America, and with out the signature you ain't got sh*t.
 
p.s. should of had a fax machine and you would of had me by the balls. Too bad. Live and learn!

Matt,

you might want to check out the law, small claims is all I need, hell maybe Judge Judy, that would be fun.  There is tons of case law regarding e contracting, maybe you should look it up. 

Anyway, this will probably shake your memory.  Dont worry about anything though, I have the resolve to see this through.

This is only one of many emails showing the ongoing work throughout the contract not to mention my phone logs.

I've got plenty, a judgement on your credit will do way more harm to your ability to do business then a settlement.  Think it over and be smart about it this time.

Subject: Fax number?

Darrel,
     Hi. I was wondering what your fax number is?  Let me know and I will get a signed copy of the contract to you.  We also need to agree on a payment method.  Western Uninon Works, but be a cost on us.  Pay pal works, but will be a cost to you.  Let's figure out something that is fair for both of us.
                                     
                                                         -Matt

When bidding for a carpet cleaning job, it's crucial to strike a balance between providing a competitive offer and ensuring that your services align with the client's needs. Begin by thoroughly assessing the size of the space, the type of carpet, and any specific cleaning requirements. Consider factors such as the level of soiling, the presence of stains, and the necessity for any specialized treatments.

Craft a detailed and transparent proposal that outlines the scope of work, including the specific cleaning methods, the timeline for completion, and the total cost. Be clear about any additional services, such as furniture moving or stain treatment, and whether these are included in the base price or require an extra fee.

Providing a comprehensive yet easy-to-understand bid not only showcases your professionalism but also helps the client make an informed decision. Additionally, highlight any unique selling points, such as environmentally friendly cleaning practices or the use of advanced equipment, to set your bid apart from the competition

Some times 50 a room!!! sometimes buy sq footage . 30 To 40 cents a sq foot. I’m in the Midwest population 120.000 . Urine and spot removal charge a little more .

Bidding carpet cleaning jobs can definitely be tough at first, and it does take some practice. Charging per square foot or per room both have their merits.

Per Square Foot: It's straightforward, especially for larger areas. Clients appreciate the transparency, and it accounts for the actual space cleaned. However, it might get a bit complex if there are various surfaces or intricate spaces.
Per Room: Simplicity is the name of the game. Clients easily understand what they're paying for, and it's great for standard sized rooms. However, it can be less precise for irregular room shapes or larger spaces.

For a newbie, it's okay to experiment. Consider factors like room size, furniture moving, and the condition of the carpet. Also, check out what competitors in your area are doing. It's like peeking at someone else's poker cards. Wink

Finding your pricing groove takes time, be flexible and adjust as you go.

If it is for commercial, ALWAYS do it in person. Residential i try to do in person as much as possible. A demo increases your sales advantage significantly.
