    A friend of a friend is ripping out old kitchen units and replacing for new, they require an additional 4 sockets in the kitchen. After I confirm the kitchen has its own ring and the relevant checks the job will be splitting the ring at one socket and chasing down from that socket and then chasing back up 3 times for 4 sockets above kitchen worktop level at 3 different locations which also means chasing and installing back boxes. I will also leave enough cable to wire single oven point most probably in the new unit also isolate and disconnect 6mm from old all in one cooker and then connect 6mm to individual hob once worktops are in place. I will also leave enough cable to install surface mount socket in one of the units for a small fridge. There's also 3 existing sockets that are working but the back boxes are half visible because it was originally covered by 2 layers of tiles which have now been removed so they need to be chased deeper in the wall or most probably replaced for new back box. The customer has purchased all sockets and back boxes, I need to supply 2.5mm t&e cable etc. Any help with rough prices to work off would be a great help. Thank you

    price up the materials that you will be supplying. add 20%. then estimate the time to do the job, (say 2 days), then add those 2 days labour at your day rate,allowing time for testing and writing up your EIC.from what you have posted, i'd quote a ball park figure of around £650, assuming no remedials needed on earthing and bonding etc.

    £420-£460. 1stfix and 2nd fix tested and part p notified. Are you just leaving the 2.5 cable betweeen sockets dangling on the floor or clipping on surface below wktop height?

    You need to charge more IMHO... Part p applies to kitchens in Wales ..... So you need to deal with that too.

    Is the fuseboard up to date?

    P.s check rcd / mcb protection complies, bonding inplace, ring final conductors continuous. Good luck, post back once youve finished, will be good for others taking on similar jons.

    I do a lot of my kitchen refurbs on hour or day rate. Sometimes all manner of extra work is revealed, once the old units have been removed, especially if it's not the original kitchen.

    As it's a mate you could come up with some mates rates, as long your not doing it as a love job! This will give you some experience on pricing for future work, and give you an idea on how long things take.

    Your mate might need to consider having the wall skimmed, where he's removed the tiles, unless he's re-tiling or other wall coverings.
