    Electrical Quote - 5 sockets and move light - 300 13th Jan 19 at 5:09 PM
    Hello :-)
    I've had a quote from a sparky for 300 to complete the following works;

    Move light fitting in ceiling and install 5 double gang sockets in a bedroom
    The sockets will be chased into the (solid) wall.
    I'm providing the face plates. The rest of the materials are included.
    Currently there is 1 x double socket and 2 x single sockets - not sure if this makes any difference because they'll all have to be removed / moved.
    Does 300 for this seem like a fair price?
    No VAT to pay.

    Should also add that the floorboards will already be up in some places to allow for any wires to be run to the new socket location.
    There's no need to make good on the chased sockets as the plasterers are coming in and have priced that in to their quote.
    I'm in Bristol.

    Thanks in advance.

    Very fair - it's actually cheap for the works quoted.
