I have 3 lads who have just to door and asked if car needed washing. It does and they are out there scrubbing thier little hearts outs, question is how much do i pay them?

A £ each?

A fiver

morethanyoubargainfor Tue 19-Aug-08 16:53:44

do you reckon thats enough?

£6 or £9 (something that can be split evenly and easily)

cocolepew Tue 19-Aug-08 16:54:27

We can get a handwash and wax for £3 down the road.

How old are they, boys or teens?

Oh to be split. I thought you meant each blush

But what would you pay at those things you see at supermarkets everywhere, £15?

So you could stretch to £3 each if they do a good job.

They are about 12-13

Are they going down the whole street askling to wash cars?

I reckon £1, maybe £1.50 each

I presume they will be going down street, but most of houses in this cul-de-sac don't have cars as the average age of our neighbours is 70.

Even if they are going down the street, if they're 'scrubbing their hearts out' they deserve a decent rate, and it would be a good neighbourly thing to give it. I think the suggestion of a figure that can be easily split is good. I think it's impressive that teenagers are doiung this sort of thing, and should be encouraged. Lecture over.

I completly agree with you Katch, they did a fab job and i payed them a good rate of which they were very grateful

My DSs sometimes go out with their friends doing this. They are happy to share a fiver.
