    Kitchen fitter not turned up 15th May 18 at 7:37 PM
    Hi
    My mum has ordered a kitchen from Magnet. Her old kitchen was to come out on Monday and installation of the new one to continue from there. We ordered a skip for 10 days, as advised, plenty time we thought! Problem is the fitter has never arrived, the kitchen is still to be delivered and we are told he will hopefully be out on Friday. Iím going to make sure Magnet pay for any extra days skip hire but wondering about any advice.....

    What does your contract say about delays?

    What could the fitter do without the kitchen units?
    Punctuation, Spelling and Grammar will be used sparingly. Due to rising costs of inflation.

    Due to me being a tight git.

    I imagine, take the old kitchen out.


    It took my kitchen fitter a few days to strip my kitchen , sort the plumbing and electrics, before he could fit the new one, although I did have the kitchen delivered before he started.


    OP who arranged the fitter

    Is there actually any cost for additional days hiring the skip? Last time I had one it was a standard charge that was paid regardless of how long we had the skip, we just rang them up when it was full to arrange collection.

    Was that while ago.

    Skips are hired by the week around here and are charged extra if not collected on agreed date

    It was a while ago (8 years) and it may just have been that company, it's the only time I've ever needed a skip so my experience is limited.
