We must have a lot of get-rich-quick plumbers in the Newark area including British Gas who are a joke. Have had several quotes for a new 30 kw boiler to be fitted. Most say it will take a day or just over for the plumber and a helper to fit and quotes (incl vat) are from £2400 to £3700 (BG). The retail cost of the boiler (same make) on the net is around £750 including chimney fittings and vat. Excluding the vat that means that the charge for labour for a day or just over for one plumber and helper is from £1300 to £2400 approx. Rip-off! Rant over.
