There is one or two internet painting agencies,
no names given, who work on a day
work basis only. They charge hourly rates
starting at about 20 pounds per hour
that rise to up to 80 per hour
for overtime and weekend work. This seems a
little expensive as you have no idea
what the final cost will be for your
decorations. My advice is steer clear and
get an estimate for the whole job.

It's help full to keep track of your
competitors in the painting business, even if
you do not intend to base your estimate
prices on market rates. Do a bit of
detective work, what is the hourly rate
they are charging,get some quotes. Paint
suppliers know a lot about the work
situation have a chat with them.

Last week I got talking to a fellow
painting business owner. We talked about prices.
I inquired what was his hourly rate. I was
half expecting him to say a low
figure, but what he said shuck me!!
his hourly rate was so low, but he
defended this by saying he did not want
to lose work. I told him stop robbing
himself and to raise his rate by at
least 50% and he would still get work.

Most painting contractors play "follow the leader"
or "going rate" They think because another
company is charging say £50 per hour
that is the set rate and they blindly
stick with it regardless of the different
overheads of the other company the other
company may have low overheads, and will
make a profit at £50 per hour.
you might have much higher overheads and if
you copy this £50 per hour rate will lose
money. Calculate you own profitable hourly rate.

There are plenty of folk who think their
time is very important but could not care
less about wasting yours. So it could be
a good idea to charge for a written
estimate on your headed stationary. Most people
who want an estimate already have someone else
in mind for the work anyway. They want
to compare prices. Charge for your estimate
and refund it if you get the job.
Yes I know everyone states free estimates but
you must be paid for your time and
not let people waste it.

I had a dream last night that....
I had Establish a very high reputation
for my decorating company. I Employed the
very best workmen. When an appointment is made
for our services, we dispatched a handsome
geezer in a tuxedo with a pink carnation
in his lapel. Our up-market clientele are
forever praising the superior service we supply
which inevitably adds further more clients to an
already long lucrative waiting list. Sadly then
the alarm rang and I woke up to
reality.

Estimating a paint job is very time-consuming
and you will only win a percentage of
the work you bid for. If you
don't get the work that you are
giving a price for, at the rate your
company demands it is better than going
in low and winning the contract because
you will be setting a standard for
future low priced work that can only
lead to poor work along with wages
for your men. Low prices can often leads
to bankruptcy.
