Default Carpet fitter cost

Hope this is the right place to ask.

What I want to know is what should I expect to pay a carpet fitter, per m2 or average cost per room?

I will be suppling the gripperrods, underlay and carpet. Lounge and bedroom 2 have gripperrods already inplace.

(all measurements approx)
Lounge 16.65m2
Bedroom 1. 13m2
Bedroom 2. 9m2
Hallway 8.26m2

Around 4.50 outside m25 per metersq and expect the fitter to say any liability is restricted to fitting only and not faulty materials or defects caused by materials supplied.

Anything between 2.50 and 5 psm. Some have a minimum charge, usually 30 - 35.

Thanks for the information, I'm in the south west. In the past I've laid the carpet with my dad help but his health is not good and I can't lift the carpets with my back. So thought I would get the pros in.

I'm tempted to install the gripperrods, just for the piece of mind that they don't hammer the nail into any of the barrier pipes running under the plywood floor. Also I would prefer that the underlay be taped not stapled. Would that offend the fitter?

So if I budget to give between 120-160 for the 4 rooms it will be ok.
