Jobbing

We regret any inconvenience caused to our customers who, in recent years, may have had to wait several weeks for an appointment to estimate/quote for works. To avoid this delay some customers may wish to consider our scale rates for jobbing works (i.e. minor repairs or maintenance) to which we can often put labour to within a relatively short period of time.

Jobbing works are charged by the hour, plus materials. It usually works out cheaper to carry out smaller jobs at jobbing rates rather than providing an estimate/quotation.

To assist our customers we detail below our revised scale for jobbing works guaranteed from 3oth April 2012 to 31st October 2012:-

Minimum job charge for all trades (includes first hour) £45

Hourly Rates

Qualified joiner rate £28
Advanced Plumber rate (kitchen & bathroom work) £32
Gas engineer rate (kitchen/boiler work) £37
Labourer £14
Apprentice rate £8
Other trades – on request

Jobbing rates are inclusive of fuel & motor costs, but time spent travelling to customers will be charged together with any materials used and on some occasions parking and the removal of waste. Time after 6.30pm will be charged at time and a half with double time at weekends or late evenings / antisocial hours.
