            Put Michelin on but even "cheap" ones are about £115 each.
  • A few weeks ago, I put the price up on a commercial site by £15/month from £75-£90.  I'd underpriced it (to get the work) when I took it on 5 years ago and hadn't  put the price up since then.  The "agent" actually tried to argue that it should be just a fiver!  I did point out that this really was a pittance and  they were lucky to get what I considered a really good service for that price. They then got on the tenants association............ all over £10/month.... fortunately, I did their "chairmans" garden who pointed out to them how ridiculous they were being and to pay up immediately. In a way, my fault that I didn't increase this one each year like my others.

    This is a very interesting thread and particularly useful at the moment as Im aware that I have a handful of customers that have been paying the same rate for 3/4 years and I should have advised them that increases need to made. The hard thing is telling/writing to them in a concise way when working for them for sometime and they often appear as friends rather than customers. Without annual increases some increases may seem like a big one to bring them into line with others.  Has anyone else found this and the best way forward?

    I have already read the Phasing in Price Increases article which is very useful
