    Wickes kitchen installation cost

    Wickes kitchen installation cost 7th Jan 18 at 6:28 PM

    Had a quote from Wickes for a new kitchen today, although the cost for the kitchen itself it reasonable their installation cost is ridiculous: 10 units, plus a couple of integrated appliances, plumbing into the utility for a washing machine and a few new sockets plus tiling. In total Wickes have quoted £2150 for the installation and another £1300 to the plumber and electrician for their work. So almost £3500 in total.

    Has anyone got any suggestions regarding installation, surely I would be better getting an independent kitchen fitter in? I can't see it being more than a days work for a plumber and electrician to do their part.

    Any ideas would be great.

    The in store prices for fitting from people like Wicks and B&Q tend to be quite high, I would speak to independent kitchen fitters and get quotes from them, they will probably be cheaper, if you want the Wicks kitchen show them the layout/plans from Wicks.

    Go back in and tell them you want it reduced or your money will go elswhere. Wickes installation charges have crept up over the last few years. The only problem with getting an independent fitter is you really have to know how good he is and see previous work. Don't just pick a fitter from yellow P or check a cow.
