  • Worker Compensation (if you already drive employees)
  • Bond Insurance
  • That you include all the supplies.
  • Natural/Green products. (if you use them)
  • Microfiber rags (if you use them)

You can summarize the most important and with the intention of adding value to your client, Let your client know that you know what to do very well and it will be difficult for them to find another person or company.

In summary:

You have to know the average price that companies in your area charge per hour.
