Hi All,

I'm going to have my GAS fire fitted, and was wondering how much do you think it should cost me..

Bascily, I need the hole knocking out a bit deeper (where the fireplace sits) and then gas fire fitted. Also some platering needs doing around the edges.

Now, I've had lots of differnt quotes, ranging from £50 to £500

I had a guy in yesterday, and he quoted £450 for everying inc matrials.
He said he would have to run a gas check to see if my pipes were made out of lead (if they were the job goes up to £1,000)

Does anyone know if this is a far price? what should I be paying for a gas fire to be fitted?
I dont want to get ripped off, but at the same time dont want some cowboy in doing a rubish job.

Thanks to those who can shed some light.

Knock the hole bigger yourself, It will reduce the cost :thumbsup:

I would think a job like that should cost about £150 to £200, I think you should not be really paying more.

Yeah the guy I had in yesterday was Gas Safe.
The others claimed to also be Gas Safe, however they quoted me £50 for the job, where as this guy quoted me £500? somthing is obviously a miss here :/

well they're all meant to have cards with ID numbers on them....ask for their card, take the number and search it online apparently it comes up with a pic (not sure) so you can tell if they're registered or not.

Ofcourse if they make excuses for the card/number then I wouldnt trust them :whistling:

just realised you can also search your post code on the same site to find registered businesses :)

I would say probably £200+ based on the fact it costs £70 gfew years back to have cooker installed and all taht is is clip on a pipe making sure cooker level. And then doing a 2 minute test. 10 mins work max.

£50 is defo cowboy and run a mile

Had a hole in the wall fitted 3 months ago, parts and labour cost £200.00. If you are based near liverpool will give you the number.
Dont pay £50 as he will be a cowboy and you may get poisoned of the fire.

why ask if £450 is a fair price when you have had someone saying they will do it for £50?

£450 sounds ridiculous for a couple of hours work

just pay £50 after the job is done to your satisfaction and ensure that fitter is gas safe registered

check here and report them if they are not registered

It doesn't take a couple of hours that's why.

Id love to see someone knock the wall out, plaster, fit the fire, do a gas soundness test, test the fire, perform a spillage test and come in at 120 minutes.

Without seing the actual job it's very difficult to give a price to be honest, depends on a number of things.

Has there bee a gas fire in this opening/chimney before? Has the flue been tested? is there a gas pipe already in place at the fireplace?
