Any idea how much it would start from costwise for a tap and for a plumber to install this where my current bathroom sink is which has two taps please, live in Exeter? Thankyou.
Gloss white, but as it states it's a plastic bowl. Still good price hot from me

This is relatively easy as a DIY project, unless you are not confident. It's a matter of:-
PROTECT YOUR FLOOR FROM DRIPS ETC WITH PLASTIC SHEET / OLD TOWELS
1. Isolate your hot and cold water to the sink, (may have ball-o-fix valves local under your basin which you turn off with a screwdriver), otherwise a drain down of your hot and cold pipework. Don't forget to turn off your mains cold water if your hot water is tank fed otherwise it will carry on topping up whilst you are trying to drain. If you have a combi-boiler seek help. Disconnect your waste pipe leaving the trap in place.
2. Disconnect your existing taps from under the basin (at the ball-o-fix if you are lucky) or cut through pipework (after you have isolated / drained). Un-mount your existing sink, screws or brackets. At this point you should consider making good any finishes, tiles etc before going further.
3. Take your new basin and fix your new tap and waste outlet before you fit it to the unit.
4. Mount your unit to the wall. Place your sink in the unit.
5. Determine if you need any fittings to adapt your old pipework (inc the waste) to the new sink. Photograph your old pipework on your phone. Take to somewhere like screwfix or Tool station / B&Q and ask for help if you are unsure.
6. Assuming that you have adapted your Hot and Cold pipework to suit the new tap flexible connections (supplied with your new tap) connect to the hot and cold pipework.Traditionally, the hot connection should be on the left hand side of your basin.
If you dont have ball-o-fix type valves fitted now, consider installing, very cheap, and a god send and saves draining down again if you have a leak. attach your waste pipe/trap.
7. Check all connections are tightened. Turn on your hot or cold service, 1 at a time (its easier to cope with one leak at a time)
8. Check your waste.
9. Grout/silicone any gaps at the sink / wall.

A plumber would take a day, plus materials. allow about £200 unless you have a helpful mate.

Hope this helps
Thank you for the advice - has given me an idea re. cost.
Back in stock...I shall buy mine tonight
Just picked 2 up at Stockport, 4 left. Excellent value. Ignore £74.99 signs.

Thanks for posting davidsr

Got one! Just opened it and am very happy with it, thx
so i have one of these and not sure whether the sink is ment to be free on top of the unit or i need to fix it to the unit?? as it does move
These are nice units, looked at them a couple of months ago at full price but at 450mm they are too deep for what I need - otherwise I'd have snapped it up

I had the same concerns. I fitted one last night, I will be bedding it on a bead of silicone sealant between the sink and unit. You could put a fixing plate on two sides, drilling / screwing in place underneath, but may invalidate the warranty. Seems a strange design the whole unit just hanging on two brackets. I will be putting two supplementary brackets on the unit to the wall inside.
