475 a day you must work for millionaires. That the way if you can get hold of the work good luck to you. But I've notice with people with money you put a price 300 400 pound a day on a job they get a cheaper price. So that y I've gone for the easier life no stress 140 170 day half of it cash happy as Larry! Wher can I get job round my area nearly a grand a week. Better chance of winning the lottery! Average salary round my area is 400 a week unless your a doctor! As I've said before you can't go on comparing rate on here Becouse it all difrent over the UK.
Look in to it how rate are difrent over UK might understand then!

You s**t bed .4.52 am and your thinking bout me
Fat from it,if I was thinking of you I would of replied at 3am..4.52am to me is not early.problem I have with you is your the type of guys this trade needs rid of,your pricing mentality is laughable.do you think a plumber or sparks would charge less just because there was on there way home from a job or from a tescos shop? I bet there would still charge a call out fee aswell as a price to fix it.shape up or does us all a favour and do something else

Question for you, have you ever tried charging more? You're saying the same things the guy I work with says.
So they have to spend a couple of weeks wages to get a bedroom skimmed, what's wrong with that? Noone own a new car where you live? Noone go on holiday? Buy a new kitchen?

Yes loads of times I've priced jobs on 300 a day no luck for me to get that I'd have to travel aeay I'd rather have a steady 140 170 a day no stress and home with family! Trouble is you got so many lads on 120 a day can't compete. Only jobs I would make 300 day. Chimney work. So I'm just hopping every chimney will leak in Wales for the next 5 years!

Looked to price at a large hall way and ceiling, re-skim job,. Customer told me she had already had one price of £700. Time to walk away, could not match that price, would have charged £700 to get it prepared for skimming. Set up access equipment, re-board ceiling and PVA walls.
Some plasterers working far too cheap.
When everything goes good on a job, it's still hard work.
