    Evening Alan hope you are well pal I'm looking at starting out on my own and am having problems understanding how to price jobs I've seen people saying per square metre and linear I'm thinking of using a mixture of ringlock system and tube and fitting will it be the same per meter for both and would it be the same for every lift of scaffolding erected,do I measure up then work out meterage then add my overheads ie,transport,men doing job, hire etc and that's it or do I put a bit on top any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

    Hi Alan

    I do not have access to this information I'm afraid. We use an email address / IP address checking system that checks an international database of email addresses of known spammers. This is a completely automated system. There is nothing to be concerned about. If any of your staff wish to create an account, they simply need contact me.
