This is always a difficult one, as each area or region tends to have slightly different pricing trends for the trades, so it very much depends on where you are working. To be competitive you need to be aware of the average prices in your local area rather than any national average prices as they can be significantly different. I would be tempted to start at the lower end and if you get 'inundated' with work.. then hike up the prices accordingly till you get the right balance so that you attract enough work to keep you busy but not so much that you're having to turn work down.
I dont know if thats any help... but the bottom line is.. " ..my guess is as bad as yours".

You could always get the client to get 2 or 3 quotes for the job and say you will do it 5% cheeper! Work for me untill i found my feet.:p
