We've moved into a house that has a Hammonds fitted wardrobe but only has a hanging rail. I don't want to ask Hammonds to quote as I know I won't like their cost! We've looked at ikea but the accessories don't fit, any other ideas please?

dont know the range you mentioned but inside shelves should be easy. Simply measure, buy wood and cut to size, use something suitable to attach to sides that will support shelves and jobs a goodun!
When it comes to drawers they are a little more complex. But a drawer is just a shelf that moves backwards and forwards and has a drawer front. It only has a back and sides to prevent stuff from sliding down the back and sides. Draw runners are easily bought and fitted.

Howdens do all the fittings, shelves, drawers etc for the cheaper ranges (B&Q , Argos, Homebase etc ) ,maybe they do them for other ranges such as yours - Google them and probably worth a phone call ,I'm sure they'll be cheaper than Hammonds .

Assuming you're ok at DIY,if I asked my OH to do this guaranteed they wouldn't be straight,then he would blame the walls like he does when he doesn't put a picture or mirror up straight X)

I can't do any DIY and my husband has a broken arm! I called Howdens and they weren't helpful, she said they don't do them for anyone else.

Or Plan B , you can buy little sets of plastic drawers from Argos/ Homebase etc argos.co.uk/sta…htm for example . They don't look great but hold your socks etc and you don't see them when the wardrobe doors are closed .

I've never heard of them so I just Googled them,it looks nice,maybe it's worth just emailing them or asking them on Facebook to see how much the accessories are,it will look much nicer with the right bits & pieces inside it.

Measure the internal size of your wardrobe and look for a chest of drawers to fit inside, on eBay or Freecycle etc.
