    who knows what the cost would be?

    Is the pipework there already & you are just replacing your old gas cooker?

    If so its going to be £50-60 minimum plus extra if pipework adaptations are required.

    I paid £55 25 years ago. So that doesn't look a bad price to be honest. I'm in the North East as well

    Cooker hose, bayonet and back plate are £10-£15, 9 times out of 10 the bayonet needs moving so the cooker can be pushed back against the wall properly. It's still under an hours work with all that, and the obligatory safety chain, so you should find someone desperate willing to do it for £50.

    I phoned up a corgi registered fitter once and this old bloke turned up and nearly blew the bloody house up. Managed electrocute himself but cutting the plug of a hob with his pliers while it was pluged :-) I think he was a wrong'un so when I wanted another one I went of one of those find a builder sites and picked on with a lot of reviews and the proper qualification of many years. I was happy to pay £70.

    Depends on what type of cooker it is, a hose shouldn't be fitted to hobs or built in cookers as I understand, might be wrong.

    Its only a new cooker that needs fitted, pipework has been done so only the fitting is needed.

    £70 sounds good? LOL what a joke... so basically £400+ for a gas cooker! First time gas and i feel ripped off...
