    Kitchen fitting (B&Q)

    Kitchen fitting (B&Q) 6th Jan 07 at 12:07 AM
    We are having our kitchen totally redone, it's a very small kitchen (2.4m x 1.4m). Quote from B&Q was 1500 for the units/appliances.. we thought this sounded ok - it includes integrated washing machine, electric oven, gas hob, hob chimney, new sink, taps, worktop, 8 units, and new flooring (we are keeping our existing fridge/freezer)

    BUT......... for our tiny kitchen they quoted us 2700!!! for fitting. Ridiculous, no? Especially considering that this charge does not include extras that we will need e.g. swapping round the position of the washing machine & cooker. It also includes a 77 charge for moving our freestanding fridge/freezer out of the kitchen during fitting, and moving it back into the space in the kitchen afterwards! Think I can move the fridge myself actually!!!!

    Suffice to say that we are NOT getting the kitchen fitted by B&Q, although we are ordering the units & appliances from them we are getting a local handyman to do the fitting....

    Hi, did you take them to court? They say their kitchen comes with 5 year warranty on workmanship.

    hi i've just been quoted 4000 by b & q to install a mid range kitchen (10' by 7') and no matter how professional and competent the installer the price cannot be justified. Wickes quoted 1300 to fit a higher spec kitchen and a local bespoke kitchen company the same. I never thought that buying a kitchen would be like going to the dentist !

    All these posts are over 10 years old. Isn't there any more up-to-date information than this?
