I need one plug socket turned into a double and two new doubles fitted in where i haven't had any there before in a bedroom.

Anyone got a roundabout figure as i haven't got a Scooby Doo about how much something like this should cost.

I will get more than one quote but just wondered what amount i would be looking at in Manchester ?

Cheers :-)

Put an ad on mybuilder.com

The single to double would be a doddle for you to do. The new extensions... Would chasing into the wall be required? What distance from any existing socket would it be and what materials are the walls. (no one could quote without that knowledge)

One is nowhere near an existing socket and one is quite near to one,the walls are brick,i think lol

30 to 40 quid for the double conversion, then the one thats nearer the existing one will require the wall dug out a casing put in and the wires followed all the way down so could well be around 60 quid for that one then the second add on will be a bit harder to do so would expect to pay a bit more :)

it all depends on how much cable is to be used!. he floorboads wil need to raised unless he brings it from the loft and chisels his way down (unless you want it in a nasty trucking). Then hes got to make the hole for the metal case to fit in and use some plaster and fill in the area around the sockets. probably about 1/2 - days work there for a proper leccy if there are any problems with the wiring.

Lol if only such a kind offer wasnt taken in such a filthy way . . .

Aye generally prefer a thread that has a good bit of laughter about it, but within about 10 comments someone else will jump in answering the original question thats already been answered . . .

Don't you mean trunking lol

I'm turning the room into an upstairs lounge/office area so i need more sockets,i started stripping the room last nite and my arm is killing me :( anyway,the plastering part isn't a problem coz the room needs plastering anyway .
