    Hi, we move threads if we think they’ll get more help elsewhere (please read the forum rule) so this post/thread has been moved to another board. If you have any questions about this policy please email forumteam@moneysavingexpert.com.

    I’ve moved your thread from the ‘In my home’ board to the ‘Is This Quote Fair?’ board, where it is better suited.

    Regards

    It's unusual to get an RGI out for a minimum of less than an hour, so £90 min charge is not excessive. Plus parts a tenner and you are nearly at £112.
    How long did it take?
    No free lunch, and no free laptop

    Sounds fair to me.
    Feudal Britain needs land reform. 70% of the land is "owned" by 1 % of the population and at least 50% is unregistered (inherited by landed gentry). Thats why your slave box costs so much..

    Well he says took 4 hours


    As work price is £25 an hour


    I agree about 1 hour work as was no leaks or nothing



    So was expecting about £60 bill not £112
