We're firing off an all inclusive room price to see how it will work.

We do everything, customer does nothing.
Rolling it out this spring.

Going to do a set price per room, which will be high but includes everything... super simple for the customer just pick up your undies if you don't want us to see the

who are you targeting w the $ / rm strategy ?

Add Air Duct Cleaning as an additional offering. Your truck mount can be used or a portable vacuum. Our clients earn up to $500 per hour and usually don't require any additional licenses. Investment is low and demand is soaring!

Yeah - no joke you are missing some serious $.

If you charge $45 a room. Charge $20 per room to do a Pet Urine Treatment and/or just call it a Deodorizer Treatment but make it clear to the customer it is truly helpful in sanitizing the carpets.

Charge $20 per room for Scotchgard. People usually have the mindset (hey since you're here why not).

If they buy both, combine it into a $30 package (best value deal!)

Now you're getting $75 a room.

Massive profit increase.
I'm getting my customers ( with bad pets accidents) organically, mostly trough the word of mouth ,reviews, blogs, submission forms, etc. My price per room is around $150. What steps should I take to increase my ticket price?
You got to be kidding me!
I know you that you mean well with your advice, but when comes to spot lifting large area treatment ( OSR, USR, UPT, whatever the case may be) there is also speed drying involved, so if were sticking to an average $100-$150 per hour, there you have it. Am I being wrong?
I don't mean discrespect, just being caught by surprise .

If your price is already $150 per room you don't need to increase the ticket price? This is more for the guys competing in the $40 per room range.

I've thought about a White Glove service where we move everything except breakable and electronics.
Interesting to see what results you get.
I've had a few high end customers turn up their noses at the idea of moving their furniture.
I had some who hired movers!

I've also upcharged to cover for a helper and moved the furniture too.

Interesting

So far this year VLM pre spotting scrubbing carpets flushing pee and sealing large tile jobs have been a solid approach to making more money.

The per room charge could cause the client to spend lots of time designating the various serves to their respective areas.

Has anyone used this $$$ per room method, that’s on board this forum ?

Going great so far. Lots still go for our typical service but we're getting some big ass tickets from the flat rate.

It's pretty much a win win, the customers love it and getting 400 for 4 rooms is great. So far nobody with bad carpets has wanted it, only the nicer cleaner homes anyways.

Does anyone on here charge by the hour? I am on the west coast and lots of semi-skilled tradesmen charge $100 to $150 per hour plus parts. I am just starting, and I here that you should aim for $100 in gross revenues for cleaning hours, so why not just charge that? has anyone else tried this pricing method?

Because it's all about perceived value. Saying $100 per hour vs $40 per room. While you may get the same amount spent, the $40 per room looks better.

No because nobody knows how fast or slow you work
