But I would think it would take 3 people to work in the night shift and during the mornings not so bad only one person can do that. I was looking at at-least 3-4 hours detailing the place at night. With all the cleaning and empty and taking out trash and refilling the dispensers its going to take more then 2 hours They haven't really opened up the place fully yet but in a couple of weeks they will.
Ok, I am going to make a suggestion based upon the hours that you gave me: Figured annually and broken down to monthly (best and most accurate way)

1 1/3 hours daily during the day.

4 hours per night for the detail cleaning.

5.5 hours per day / 5 days per week.

260 days annually divided by 52 weeks = 260days divided by 12 months = 21.7 days average per month (use 22 days rounded) times 5.5 hours each day = 121 hours per average month

I assume that you have to remain competitive so I suggest a loaded hourly rate of \$17.00 per hour times 121 hours (monthly) =

\$2,057.00 suggested bid price per month. This would cover all the hours (day and night, 5 days per week).

I say average monthly price because you do not want to get involved with calculating you price each month due to the number of days in that month and this includes the reduction of all holidays; Christmas, Easter, etc.

Good luck, please let me know how it goes. And when you give them your proposal/contract tomorrow ask them when they will make a decision.

EDIT !!! Are you talking about 5.5 hours Lady or 17.5 daily counting yourself???? I asked earlier if 5.5 was correct however if you are saying that it is 1 1/2 during the day and 16 hours each night counting yourself then the above figures are wrong.

Indeed if 17.5 hours are to be used daily then please use this suggested pricing:

17.5 hrs daily / 5 days per week / 379 hrs per month x \$17.00 = \$6,443.00 per month.

Lady please add up all the hours that you expect to use per day and let me know.....
