I price work on the basis of skill level and demand. So for example a pre-planned boiler replacement in the summer will be cheaper than an emergency boiler change in the winter. As I am sure you will appreciate demand for our heating and boiler works in the winter is very high and less so in the summer months so we reflect that in our pricing.
Fixing a tap is less complicated than fixing a boiler so that is reflected in the price.
I have fixed overheads such as van, fuel, tools, insurance, phone, qualifications and trade membership to gas safe, a mortgage and would like to retire in a basic level of comfort when I’m old and grey… OK I’m already old and grey but much older and much greyer!
As such for small works I offer fixed price so for example:
To install a slide rail or toilet seat labour £40.
To replace an existing washing machine or kitchen tap, or ball valve with new labour only £65.
To carry out a wall mounted boiler service £80 clean a filter the same time £10.
Parts extra, these jobs may take 30mins or 90mins.
I could charge a cheaper hourly rate but have found from other people’s experiences that this would cost them more.
For large jobs such as boiler kitchen and bathroom replacements I offer a free visit and written estimates.
All estimate are guaranteed for 30 Days.
