anyone clear gutters?

I had one person ask me if I do gutters I have been cutting her grass since I was 16 so almost 10 years. I told her I would do it than got to thinking to my self to call around and offer it to other clients. well almost everyone I asked said go for it. now Im not to sure what I should charge. got enough to make a day out of cleaning gutter witch is good starting to run into slower times due to the only rain we have been getting is 3 inches in bout 30 an hr.

You might test yourself on that there theory with a couple of single story houses
that look like their roofs slope gently first, gutters are always the easy job to talk
about when all concerned parties are standing on terra firma but believe me the world
looks a whole lot different from up above lol

And you'll really want to be careful with that dang ladder, too.

You can't give a price over the phone,I've done that and found gutters with trees growing in then clogged with several years worth of composted leaves;I end up spending 2+ hours on what should be a 30 minute job.There's a guy here that advertises $85 any house,he must do good he even rents advertising space on billboards,he does repairs and installations also.
