FAQs

When speaking with new clients I get asked a lot of questions some of which are very similar. Find below a list of questions that I am often asked and hopefully it will help answer any questions that you may have. If not then feel free to get in touch using the means at the bottom of this page.

How much do you charge?

My standard hourly rate is £50 per hour ex VAT.

Do you offer fixed price quotations?

In theory no. My pricing is simple, you only pay for the time it takes me to complete a task or project. I am able to provide you with a time estimation on how long I think something will take but I will never agree to do a task for a set price as it's not fair on you or me. I've seen it time and time again, where by an agency gives a fixed price quotation at the start of a task only to find out half way through that more time is needed. They then they cut corners and produce something that isn't anywhere near as good as it should be leaving you with an end product that doesn't meet your expectations. Not fair on you. I've also seen it the other way where a task/project takes less time that it should but an agency still hit you with the full bill. Again not fair on you.

What sort of payment terms do you accept?

I like to be as flexible as I can with my payment terms taking into consideration your current circumstances. These terms are agreed at the start of any project before any work is done. Normally for smaller projects a 50% deposit is required up front, with the final 50% paid on completion.

What is your skill set?

HTML5, CSS3, SASS, LESS, JQuery, Javascript, Ajax, Prototype as well as PHP and MySQL. I'm also familiar with responsive frameworks such as Twitter Bootstrap and Foundation.

Where are you based?

I have an office in Ashford, Middlesex but also do contract work on location in and around the Central London area.

Are you any good at golf?

Truth be told no! But it is something that I'm working on. :-)
