fulley fitted bathroom including removal of all the old stuff! £5000

the guy didnt pressure me either!

I'll do it for £2,500 :lol:

So what are you getting? Be interesting to actually price up the bits and see what the labour charge is. As i'm a tight **** I fitted my bathroom and 3/4 tiled for about £6/700 ;-)

I think its you thats meant to pressure him!!!! £5K sounds a lot. I recently changed my bath over (after it got damaged) - which cost me £500 + the cost of the bath (which was £300) Changing a loo and basin is childsplay by comparrison - so I'd expect change out of £300 for fitting those! So if your bathroom suite cost you £4K, then fair enough. If not, I'd shop around a bit!

Are you a plumber Shengis - or a DIY man? I think you're fairly close to me(?) - and got several plumbing jobs for you if you are!!!

Would it not make sense to get a quote from another company or two!? Rather than the same one again.

Get a few more quotes from other places as well. Check if your local council has a fairtrader scheme etc ;-) Most of the work on a bathroom is tiling etc, them main fitting a blind man could do (almost lol).

Guv, strictly destroy it yourself :lol: Pretty good at it though, but slow as I like everything spot on ;-)

So lets get some perspective. How big is the bathroom, what are you actually having done and does it involve massive movements of pipes/adding underfloor heating etc.

Do you know exactly what suite you are getting?

I think that the OP is a little premature in recommending this company?

yer i chose the suit dont know the name yes it all sorts complete moving around of the bathroom and all tiling finishing removing and desposing off all old stuff!

B&Q will give free quotes and no hard sell, no pressure etc . Just had a quote to redo a small bathroom.....

OK, no worries! Like you, I'm a bit of a perfectionist - ie if its not right, its not good enough. Problem for me though, I cant do plumbing to save my life - and I just dont trust myself - and Ive got the watermarks on the garage ceiling to prove it!!!:whistling:
