Can anyone tell me what the going rate is for someone to disconnect a gas hob and then reconnect another one. Rates paid so far: Disconnect - £50 + vat, Reconnect - £74 incl Vat (includes cost of short section of pipe and a service valve). Both jobs done very neatly, I might add. So far, the reconnect and disconnect has cost me almost as much as the hob itself. I've had people tell me £60 was common, one person had it done for £40. Is there an industry standard?.
Thanks for that. Maybe it might have been different if the guy who disconnected at the first visit also did the reconnection as well. Unfortunately he let me down and I had to get someone else in at very short notice. I did ring a few firms but availability was always an issue. I wasn't really in a position to haggle and did feel as though I had been taken advantage of. I'll be interested to read other people's experiences.
