price advice

I know it's abit vague but just wondering what people have paid in the past for these tasks and a little information about what was done so I can try and gauge different prices and what to expect :

Window cleaning

Lawn mowing

Painting

Handy man work

Snow clearing

Many thanks I greatly appreciate any replies

Depends on how many windows, how big the lawn, how many walls to paint....

Professional company or rather a handyman with expertise? Enough to satisfy your landlord when moving out??

Re: price advice

Handyman 25-35 an hour, proper company with overheads 100 plus an hour with VAT on top. In Verbier I know people who get charged 65 hour for most things done by the caretakers wife when they are away.

I know you're quoting a price range, but seriously, 25-35 an hour is cleaners' rates for a job where they can't do nearly as much damage and don't supply their own materials and equipment. IMO it is not reasonable (or fair) to expect to pay as little as that for a skilled handyman who brings their own tools and runs a legitimate business. And IME those who are charging as little as that are typically hobbyists working on the black.

Clearly, if only you had quoted IN FULL what I actually wrote......

"proper company with overheads 100 plus an hour with VAT on top.'
