Ffs..your a robbin bastardo :frenetico: ....
There was a guy on here years ago would do it for a sheep fleece and three bags of chicken lips:sisi:
It was the financial crash that killed that, fleece was fatally devalued and chicken lips..... well you know the rest.

There are no rates in domestic, look after your own end, if someone does it cheaper then let them.
Asking for rates for a domestic job shows that
A. You've no experience in pricing
B. No experience in the work your pricing for
C. Your going end up cheap and not so cheerful

I know I'm comparing apples and pears, back in the late 80's/90's we were getting £10-£15pm f&s and £5pm for skim.
Been domestic so long well out of touch with site work.

Back in the 90s we was getting £3.00 float and skim and that was good. Most big firms were paying less and that's no bullshit either. That was early 90s
